Rogue Archery – Complaints and grievances policy

Rogue archery aims to provide a safe, inclusive and productive training environment for all archers. This policy aims to support this goal by outlining the process for resolving disputes or grievances.

Negotiated solutions will aim to address the key issues and be acceptable to all individuals or parties involved without ascribing blame, victimisation or discrimination. Complainants will not suffer any disadvantage, victimisation or discrimination as a result of raising a grievance, with minimum stress and maximum protection for all concerned.

Rogue Archery operates under various jurisdictions including schools, archery clubs and private or community venues. This policy extends to disputes or grievances that occur during, or in association with activities conducted by Rogue Archery, but does not supersede the obligations of archers, officials and coaches under other relevant policies such as Archery Australia’s member protection policy.

Rights and responsibilities

All persons have the right to:

  • make a complaint to the coach or another member of the team at an appropriate level

  • be treated with respect and impartiality and provided with support throughout the process

  • have the principles of natural justice and procedural fairness observed. This means:

    • complaints must be fully described by the person with the grievance

    • the person who is the subject of concern must be informed of all the allegations in relation to his/her behaviour

    • the person who is the subject of concern must have a full opportunity to put forward their case

    • all parties to the complaint must have the right to be heard

    • all relevant submissions and evidence must be considered

    • irrelevant matters must not be taken into account

    • the decision-maker must be impartial, fair and just

  • investigations and proceedings that are conducted honestly, fairly and without bias.

  • no undue delay in investigations and proceedings.

 

It is the responsibility of all parties involved in a grievance to participate fully in the resolution process in good faith. Confidentiality must be respected and maintained at all times within the constraints of the need to fully investigate the matter, subject to any legal requirements for disclosure and consistent with the principles of natural justice.

Procedure:

Rogue Archery aims to address disputes or grievances at the lowest possible level, however; in some instances it may be appropriate to escalate to a higher level for intervention.

The following procedure should be followed by complainants in response to a dispute or grievance, including some of the following scenarios:

  • Archers who have a grievance with Rogue Archery around the services provided e.g. quality of coaching, attention provided during instruction, payment for services etc.

  • Archers who have a grievance with another archer within the activity

  • Disputes between archers, parents/guardians, or other stakeholders associated with the activity.

Stage 1:

If the complainant feels comfortable to do so, complaints should be dealt with in the first instance by communicating directly with the person involved. This level is quite informal and verbal.

If the matter is not resolved, proceed to stage 2.

Stage 2:

The complainant notifies the coach (in writing or otherwise) as to the substance of the grievance and states the outcome sought. Discussion should be held between the complainant and any other relevant party. This level will usually be informal but either party may request written statements.

If the matter is not resolved, proceed to stage 3.

Stage 3:

If the complainant is not satisfied with the outcome of stage 1 and 2 of this procedure, they reserve the right to approach a relevant external agency such as an anti-discrimination commission or the department of child safety services for advice.
