When looking at these document, first identify the group your team is in, (Juniors, Senior Women, Masters or Senior Men, Referee, or Coach). This will identify the column colour to look at and you can ignore the others. For example, Senior Women look at the Yellow columns only.

Next select the column with your Competition and the number of teams in the competition (the number will always be even, so if there is a bye in your competition it is deemed to be a team). You will now be able to identify the dates for matches in your competition for the entire year as well as any major events scheduled for 2017 by scrolling down that column.

Overview – Member Protection Information Officer

Member Protection Information Officers (MPIO) play an important role in sport. They provide information and guidance on complaints procedures – they are the ‘go to’ person if you want to discuss problems at your club/association, particularly if you are considering making a formal complaint. They provide information about a person’s rights, responsibilities and options to an individual making a complaint or raising a concern. They can also provide information and advice to sport administrators and complaint handlers with regard to the Member Protection Policy of that sport. MPIOs are generally impartial; they do not mediate or investigate complaints.

The MPIO can play a key role in ensuring your sport is safe, fair and inclusive. MPIOs do this through ensuring club people and administrators know their rights and responsibilities and ensuring policies that focus on member protection are being implemented. Such policies may include but are not limited to the complaints policy and procedures, child protection policies, harassment and discrimination policies
