Post-evaluation grievances will be addressed as quickly as practical. Members are encouraged to
consider the ’24-hour’ rule before indicating a grievance. Grievances should be submitted by
email and indicate:
1. The aspect of the TWHA evaluation guideline that wasn’t followed
2. The impact of the error
3. A proposed resolution.
Responses to member grievances will be subject to the ‘24-hour’ rule and will be reviewed by
another Board member. Grievance resolution will consider the impact on all players (not just the
player(s) included in the grievance).
Parents wanting to submit a grievance are asked to review the guidelines carefully, then use this form: (Word version) (PDF) .
