Model Policies & Agreements
SDRCC has developed a number of ready-to-use contract clauses, agreements and sample policies.
Model Appeal Policies:
Guide to the Development of an Appeal Policy (Standard Version): This model policy is suitable for national sport organizations, multisport organizations and larger provincial or territorial sport organizations.
Guide to the Development of an Appeal Policy (Simplified Version): This model policy is suitable for sport clubs and smaller sport organizations operating at the regional, provincial or territorial levels.
Clauses: These clauses can be integrated into policies, agreements and contracts to allow signatories to resort to alternative dispute resolution should a dispute arise from the interpretation or implementation of the document in question.
Agreements: If no dispute resolution clause was integrated into the policies, agreements, or contracts at the origin of a dispute, parties can still reach an agreement to submit their dispute to alternative dispute resolution by signing one of those agreements.
Waiver of Internal Appeal: Also, in certain very special circumstances, parties wish to waive the internal appeal process of an NSO to bring their dispute directly to SDRCC. The following version of the proposed agreements specifically makes reference to that situation.
