Grievance Procedure

Frederick American Little League (FALL) acknowledges that not every game, practice or other event will go on without issues.  This grievance policy has been created to deal with these issues.

FALL works with a 24 Hour Rule in which we request that prior to filing a grievance the person considering filing the grievance wait 24 hours from the time of the event or activity in question occurs.  FALL reserves the right to disregard any grievance filed in less than 24 hours after the event or activity occurred.

Step 1

FALL requests that you consider resolving your grievance with the person or people involved.  Consider a face to face discussion with patience and professionalism.  If in person is not possible we recommend at least a phone call to express your concerns and/or objections.  If a solution or satisfaction is not reached, we recommend you move to step 2.

Step 2

In the event that a resolution cannot be reached in person or via phone, we have developed the online grievance form (link below).  Complete the form and send the grievance to [email protected] and it will be received by the league President.  The president will review the grievance with the current Board of Directors and determine whether to schedule a private meeting with all parties and applicable FALL Board of Directors. 

The Board will hear descriptions and arguments of both sides and render a decision and solution.

It is the policy of FALL not to reprimand or discriminate against any party simply for filing a grievance through the forum described here.  In addition, any party described or included in any grievance in this forum will be afforded the same policy. 

It is important that all parties understand when a grievance is filed, it is possible that one or both parties will not be satisfied with the results of the board's decision.

If possible, the Board of Directors will provide a verbal decision at the completion of the private meeting and a written decision to be delivered via US Mail upon completion of the final meeting with all parties.  Typically, results of the grievance filing and private meeting will NOT be published on the FALL website.

There is no appeal and the decision by the Board is final.
