Appeals Process

Updated: August 1, 2011

 

NIRSA has developed an appeals process for all NIRSA Championship Series events. This process includes collaboration by NIRSA Standards of Competition Committee (NSCC), the NIRSA Director of National Sport Programs, NIRSA Immediate Past Chair, and the respective sport's Chair to provide timely feedback and swift rule in cases where participants feel they have received unjust or inappropriate sanction. The NIRSA appeals process will ensure that all individual competitors and institutions participating in NIRSA events receive fair and equal treatment. The ultimate goal of the Appeals Board is to maintain the integrity of the NIRSA tournament brand.

 

NIRSA Appeal process

 

  • An individual or team can appeal the sanction or request an eligibility exception through a written letter approved by their Campus Recreation Director (include the Director's statement of support and signature) and sent to the NIRSA Director of National Sport Programs within ten (10) business days of the sanction (NOTE: Request for eligibility exceptions must be made a minimum of 15 days prior to the respective contest). The reasons for the appeal should be clearly outlined. The NIRSA Director of National Sport Programs forwards the appeal to the NIRSA Standards of Competition Work Team Chair for review by the appeals committee, including: NIRSA Standards of Competition Work Team Chair, NIRSA Committee Past Chair, NIRSA Work Team Chair of the appropriate sport, and the current NIRSA Standards of Competition Work Team. The appeals committee reserves the right to modify current sanctions as necessary, including imposing additional sanctions. The appeals committee will rule on the appeal within five (5) business days of receiving notification from the NIRSA Director of National Sport Programs.
    • The committee may choose to contact the Campus Recreation Director from the appealing institution (or designated representative), the team representative of the appealing team, and/or legal counsel.
  • An individual or team may request a second review/appeal by the NIRSA Appeals Board.
    • The Campus Recreation Director (or appropriate school representative) must request this appeal through written notification. This should be sent to the NIRSA National Director of Sport Programs, include any circumstances related to the situation that caused the violation, and must be submitted within five (5) business days of the ruling(s) of the NIRSA Committee. The NIRSA Director of National Sport Programs forwards the appeal to the Chair of the NIRSA Appeals Board.
    • The NIRSA Appeals Board will rule on the appeal after investigating the situation and may uphold, reject, or modify the action taken by the NIRSA Director of National Sport Programs.  
      • The written appeal can be reviewed and voted on via email.
      • The chair of the NIRSA Appeals Board can elect to hold a conference call and invite any of the following: Director of National Sport Programs, Chair of the respective Championships committee, Campus Recreation Director from the appealing institution (or designated representative), the team representative of the appealing team, legal counsel.
      • The Appeals Board will make a final ruling within five (5) business days.
    • The NIRSA Appeals Board may make exceptions to rules/policies due to extenuating circumstances. Decisions made by the NIRSA Appeals Board are final. Under no circumstances can a decision by the NIRSA Appeals Board result in the replay of any completed competition.
