Instructions for RETURNING Members
Beginning Monday, October 1, 2012, OYSAN requires a $50 deposit prior to any and all appeal hearings. Deposits will only be refunded if the appeal panel finds the applicant’s identity to not be of the person on the background check or if the criminal record has been expunged.
Appeal hearings are held every Tuesday from 5:00pm – 6:30pm. Hearings are held on a first come first serve basis. You must verify with Caitlin Sutter that you will be attending a hearing prior to the hearing.
When do I have to fill it out?
We require all (Coaches, Referees, Managers and Board Members) to fill out a new RM application after March 1st annually. All applications completed after March 1st will not expire until August 31 of the following seasonal year. For example: an application filled out on March 3, 2012 will not expire until August 31, 2013.
How much does it cost?
There is a $5 annual fee. Some leagues will reimburse the $5 charge for their coaches, so please check with your league prior to applying.
What do you base your disqualifications off of?
What if I would like to appeal OYSAN’s decision to disqualify me?
If you would like to appeal OYSAN’s disqualification, you must submit a handwritten appeal letter to OYSAN no later than 10 days after receiving your disqualification letter along with the $50 appeal deposit. You can reach out to Caitlin Sutter at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appeal hearing.
What if I was disqualified because of an offense that was listed on the O.R.C. 109.572 and I want to appeal OYSAN’s decision?
In the case that an applicant was disqualified based on a criminal offense in the O.R.C. 109.572, the subject may still appeal OYSAN’s decision however, if the appeal panel should reinstate the applicant, a letter must go to every player’s parent from the coaches’ team informing them that said coach was found guilty of one or more of the following crimes found in the O.R.C. 109.572. All parents must sign and return the letter stating that they allow the coach to continue coaching their child. All signed letters must be sent to OYSAN.
