our Rules and Regulations here
23.0 APPEALS PROCESS
23.1 Appeals Process:
23.1.1 Appeals must be submitted in writing to the SYSI office, within four (4) working days of the event or decision being appealed outlining the basis of the appeal along with an appeal fee of $50.00. The fee will be returned if the appeal is upheld. See Types of Appeals as to who may submit the appeal.
23.1.2 Decisions of an appeal will be handled by the SYSI Office staff where the appeal is obvious to the rule infractions and does not involve an appeal of an office decision; or by the Appeals Committee; within ten (10) working days of receipt of the appeal.
23.1.3 Unless otherwise stated under Types of Appeals below, the outcome of an appeal decided by the Appeals Committee may be appealed to the Saskatchewan Soccer Association in accordance with the rules of that body. If the outcome of the decision was made by the SYSI office than the appeal must first be heard by the SYSI Appeals Committee prior to it being appealed to the SSA and re-submitted as per the Appeals Process.
23.1.4 The Appeals Committee will be made up of a minimum of three members who have been appointed by the SYSI Board and will be chaired by an SYSI Director. The appeal will be heard by no less than two (2) Appeal Committee members. In the case where the Appeal Committee has less than two (2) members available for the appeal, the appellant must give written consent for the appeal to proceed.
23.1.5 The Appeals Committee may require any of the parties to appear before it to answer questions and to present further information, including the originals of the documents submitted to it. Persons appearing before the Appeals Committee must answer its questions truthfully. The Appeals Committee may require the production of further information beyond what is presented by the parties
It should be noted that SYSI supports and adopts the Saskatchewan Soccer administration of formal complaints and appeal, as per our SYSI Policies and Procedures Manual: Where specific policies are not available, SYSI will follow SSA or CSA policies as these may apply.
Any persons looking to appeal a decision made by SYSI must exhaust all processes available to them within the SYSI organization before moving to the next step of the appeal process.
The Saskatchewan Soccer formal complaints and appeals policies can be found on the Saskatchewan Soccer website in their Bylaws and Policies
