For Appeals and Complaints, please read below – please note selections are subject to appeal.
Appeals & Complaints (Section 13 – extract from the Selection Policy)
Where there is a disappointment to manage, we request that all parents and coaches support open conversations, which form an important aspect of the athlete development journey and will provide the opportunity to understand better the selection decision and the route to future selection.
Whilst we understand that selection decisions can generate significant emotion, we would ask that parents and coaches do not behave in ways that might constitute abuse or harassment to BF staff, selectors and coaches. This includes repeated calling, messaging, emailing and making personal threats. Any such behaviour will be reported for disciplinary action.
