Evaluation Guidelines

Trails West has established this comprehensive set of guidelines for player evaluations to ensure fairness to all players.  These guidelines are now available for review by players and parents. The Trails West executive would like to thank all members who participated in the review process as well as those who provided feedback from previous years.

2024 Evaluation Guidelines - Coming soon!

Evaluation Grievances

Mid-evaluation grievances may only be made to a Co-Director of Evaluations or the President and must be substantive in nature to be considered.

Post-evaluation grievances are to be made to the applicable age group Vice President, Operations. If unable to resolve at that level, then by the President followed by a Co-Director of Evaluations, followed by a Grievance Committee.

Grievances will be addressed as quickly as practical. Members are encouraged to consider the ’24-hour’ rule before indicating a grievance.

Grievances should be submitted by email using the TWHA Evaluation Grievance Form and indicate:

1. The aspect of the TWHA evaluation guideline that wasn’t followed
2. The impact of the error
3. A proposed resolution

Responses to member grievances will be subject to the ’24-hour’ rule and will be reviewed by another Board member. Grievance resolution will consider the impact on all players (not just the player(s) included in the grievance).

Should parents wish to submit a grievance, we ask that you review the TWHA Evaluation Guidelines carefully and complete the required grievance form below.

Please be respectful and courteous and remember we are all volunteers!
