Protest and Appeals
All protests of an internal nature lodged by MDHA teams or individuals must first be submitted to the MDHA President, within 48 hours, for their information and evaluation.
Where a coach, trainer, manager, parent, player, or other official under the jurisdiction of the MDHA is suspended by the decision of the MDHA President or Head Coach, an appeal may be filed in writing to the MDHA Vice-President Discipline within 48 hours after receiving the suspension decision along with a cheque made out to the MDHA for $75 per appeal and Regulation 2.4 (Panel Discipline Hearing) will be followed. A decision that overturns a suspension will result in the appellant being refunded their appeal fee.
All MDHA Panel Hearing Decisions can be appealed to the GHA District Chair as per GHA Rule and Regulation 21. The cost of the appeal is $150. Should you be successful in the appeal, your fee is returned to you.
All GHA Panel Hearing Decisions can be appealed to the HEO Chair as per HEO Appeals Procedure. The cost of the appeal is $150. Should you be successful in the appeal, your fee is returned to you.
