Kells Amateur Rugby League Club Social Order Charter
The aim of the Social Order Charter is to define a policy and set of guidelines that will provide a process to apply governance with regard to the expected social behaviours within the Kells amateur rugby league club including, change rooms and car park area.
The objective and intention of the Social Order Charter is to ensure that the behaviour and conduct of all members and visitors is both socially acceptable and is conducive to providing a socially acceptable environment for all.
Governance will be implemented by order of a committee following review and assessment of the behaviour by a person or persons perceived not to be socially acceptable.
In order to enforce governance offenders will be penalised in a manner to be determined by the committee with a typical punishment of restricting or prohibiting access to the club and facilities for a specified duration to the person or persons deemed to have behaved in a manner not to be socially acceptable.
The process of implementing the social charter will be through a step procedure to ensure a fair and representative order is applied.
1) Any behaviour by a person or persons that is deemed not to have been socially acceptable may be observed by and / or reported directly to a member of the committee.
The timing of a person being reported need not be immediate but should be within reasonable time scales.
2) A committee member will notify the person or persons perceived to have behaved in a manner not socially acceptable that they have been notified and will be discussed by the social committee with the potential to be restricted or prohibited from access to the club and facilities.
The notification is not required to be given immediately following the ‘incident’ or being reported but should be given within reasonable time scales.
3) A committee meeting will be convened to review the ‘incident’ and take into account any mitigating circumstances and by means of a vote determine any punishment that may be deemed appropriate if necessary.
4) Notification of any punishment or exoneration will usually be made in writing to the person or persons.
Person or persons accused of behaviour or conduct that is deemed to have been socially unacceptable may be offered the opportunity to make personal representation to the committee to present their point of view.
1) Action by any person to influence a second person’s opinion in relation to a reported incident within or external to the club will be seen to be detrimental the committee’s review and assessment and may result in further or extended penalisation.
2) If a person disregards a decision by the committee may result in further or extended penalisation.
3) A person disregarding a prohibition to access the club will be requested to leave. If the person is deemed to be potentially abusive or violent police may be summoned to escort the person or persons from the premises.
