Complaints & Discipline

These clear & robust rules and procedures for the organisation have been updated in partnership with the Gymnastics Ireland legal team at Lemans Solicitors and adopted by the Board.

The main document has been divided into (i) Rules and (ii) Procedures to be used during the Complaints and Disciplinary process.

The Rules section clarifies for members who are subject of a complaint or disciplinary action, what act or omission can give cause to a Complaint or Disciplinary action and what sanction can be imposed on a Participant or Unit.

The Procedures section is an explanatory document to clarify the stages of the complaints and disciplinary process from start to finish.
