Witney Roadrunners has been in existence since 1985, and has always had a Constitution, but never had any Disciplinary Guidelines. As a sociable, friendly club, luckily there has never been a need to refer to any, as any disagreements have been resolved personally, quickly and amicably.
However after discussion with England Athletics, they advise that we as a club, and club members, are vulnerable without any such guidelines.
Consequently, the Club Membership formally adopted the EA guidelines as detailed on the EA website at the WRR Club AGM held on the 21st March 2019.
These guidelines are formally entitled “Club Discipline and Appeals Process and Guidance for Disciplinary/Appeal Hearings”
The club committee will refer to and follow these guidelines in all cases of Club discipline, conduct and behaviour that requires formal investigation.
