Grievance Process

TRIBE Grievance Process
There are two aspects of this TRIBE Grievance Process. The first is when a player or parent has an issue or concern with the TRIBE coach or team. The second is when the TRIBE coach has an issue with a parent or player. Their is a 24 hour rule that no parent can voice a concern about playing time proceding a tournament.

PLAYER OR PARENT -If a player or parent has a concern or issue with a coach, the following procedure will be followed:
1. STEP 1
-The player should discuss the concern / issue with their coach and work to a mutually agreeable solution. None of the coaches should be considered unapproachable.
TRIBE strives to ensure all coaches are willing to listen to a player's concern. Until the coach is made aware of the concern / issue, nothing can be done to alleviate it. To benefit the player it is preferred to avoid waiting until the end of the season to voice any concern.
2. STEP 2 -If the concern / issue is not resolved to the player's satisfaction, the player and her parents may make an appointment to privately speak with the coach.
3. STEP 3 -If a solution is still not reached, a player or parent can contact the Club Director to set up a meeting with the player, parents, coach.
4. STEP 4–Agree to disagree. If a solution is still not reached, a player or parent can elect to resign as a member of TRIBE.

COACH -If a coach has a concern or issue with a parent or player, the following procedure will be followed:
1. STEP 1
-The coach will verbally express their concern / issue with parent or player. A review of the Parent and Player TRIBE Commandments will be suggested.
2. STEP 2 -If the concern / issue recurs, the Coach will issue the parent or player a “yellow” card. The “yellow” card is a final warning to the parent or player that continued behavior is the “last straw” prior to ejection from the practice or tournament.
3. STEP 3 -If the parent or player behavior continues to be inconsistent with the Parent and Player TRIBE Commandments, the Coach will issue the parent or player a “red” card. The “red” card is an official ejection from the practice or tournament. There is no appeal process.
The Parent and Player TRIBE Commandments are the guiding principles for determining what is or is not inappropriate behavior for the “yellow” and “red” card situations.

Team Philosophy

Elite and Cardinal, -  Travel Teams
This team level requires the greatest level of financial, travel, time, and attitude commitment towards playing TRIBE volleyball. As such, for both in-Region and out-of-Region competitive tournament events, all playing time for the team players is based on what the Head and Assistant Coaches’ feel will win. This includes all decisions on rotation, substitutions, starting player assignments, etc.

This means that there will be uneven playing time for the players and the decision are based on the coaches’ discretion and his / her goals for the team.

Note: Coaches… this does not mean that you should have players that will not or will never or rarely play. The philosophy at this level does not mean to win at the exclusion of teaching and providing player tournament experience that will benefit your players. Be aware that there is a balance between your decision to winning at all costs and to teach the skills necessary to have players learn and develop the ability to win. Winning at all costs, at the expense of 1 or 2 or 3 players on your team is not keeping with the TRIBE Volleyball Club Mission. The Coach, Player, and Parent Commandments are to be applied to assure that any issues are proactively dealt with.

In addition, these Elite / Cardinal teams are expected to participate in all of the In-Region tournaments, typically 2 to 6, 1 teams (and possibly 2 teams) register for a berth to the National Tournament in July. They will also play in 2 to 5 Out-of-Region tournaments, including possible events like, Big South, Colorado Crossroads, NEQ, and others as defined in the season budget and noted in the dues.


Regional/Gray Teams
These team levels require a lesser level of financial, travel, time, But the attitude commitment and seriousness of each players’ commitment towards playing TRIBE Volleyball Club is mandatory to be equally as high as the 1 team.

For these levels, both In-Region and Out-of-Region competitive tournament events, all playing time for the team players is based on what the Head and Assistant coaches feel will develop his/ her team and players skills. This will allow players more opportunities to learn and  succeed, while still teaching and coaching to win. Decisions on the rotation, substitutions, starting player assignments, etc, may be made to develop a player versus always playing and starting the “best” players on the team.

The philosophy of these teams means that the Head and Assistant coaches will attempt to provide more equal or even playing time for the players on each team. At the same time, all of the decisions for playing time are based on the coaches’ discretion and his / her goals for the team.

Note: Coaches…this does not mean that you must have all players to play on a precise exact and the same amount of court time. Be aware there is a balance between teaching the team to “want to win” and your decision to show up and to play just to play. The intent of this philosophy is to work hard to win, but not at the expense of losing out on providing an opportunity for you to teach and for those players to develop and learn. The Coach, Player, Parent Commandments are to be applied to assure no issues or that any issues proactively dealt with. Playing time for players, will be close but not necessarily balanced for all. Some players will get more playing time and some players will get less.
