Disciplinary Complaints/Appeals 

“Mr Doug Clarke was suspended by the Kootenay East Soccer Association (KESA) on May 1, 2022. Mr Doug Clarke launched several appeals based on his opinion that the KESA board was being biased and other procedural issues related to the suspension. Although no bias was found and his suspension was upheld by BC Soccer, a review by ITP Sports found that the Kootenay Rockies Youth Soccer Association (KRYSA District) Appeals Committee did not follow the proper administrative procedure.  Mr Colin Hardwick, Chair of the KRYSA Board,  apologizes to Mr. Doug Clarke, on behalf of the KRYSA Board, for its error in not following proper procedure.” Posted October 28, 2023 (already posted prior for 90 days)
