What is the Compliance Hearing Committee?

From Section 2: Article C of the WEST FARGO HOCKEY ASSOCIATION COMPLIANCE/SAFESPORT POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

C. Hearings Committee: The hearings committee will consist of at least three impartial and reasonably disinterested members for the purposes of conducting hearings (non-board members).

The main purpose of the Hearings Committee is to conduct an appeals hearing if an appeal of any Compliance Committee action is filed by the player/parent.

The Hearings Committee, upon due notice, shall hear appeals of disciplinary actions through an impartial hearing where evidence may be presented as such to determine a further outcome. Decisions of the hearings committee are final unless further appeal is brought before the North Dakota Amateur Hockey Association or USA Hockey. The right to appeal any sanction imposed by West Fargo Hockey Association Hearings Committee will follow USA Hockey guidelines Rule 10 which is outlined below.
