Member Protection/ Complaints & Grievances
Everyone has a right to a safe, fair and inclusive environment while participating in sport. MTBA is committed to ensuring that every person involved in our sport is treated with respect and dignity and protected from discrimination, harassment and abuse.
All MTBA Directors, staff, contractors, coaches, officials, riders, clubs and members are bound by the MTBA Member Protection Policy.
All clubs and associations will have complaints and grievances to deal with at some stage and what is most important is how you deal with them.
It is important to remember that complaints can sometimes assist your club to identify things that can help you improve the service you provide.
Therefore clubs should have a procedure in place to deal with complaints and grievances and have a person trained to handle a complaint or grievance.
Play By The Rules has many resources to help clubs and organisations meet their legislative requirements including policies, procedures, videos, online training and podcasts.

The Incident Communication Procedure outlines the communication procedure in the event of an incident such as a death, serious injury or incident at an event, course, program, workshop or activity delivered by an affiliated club, private promoter.
