The vast majority of sports-related disputes are about team selection. They often arise from competing interpretations of the existing selection criteria or the misapplication of a selection policy. Of course, selection processes that are not supported by a written policy are bound to cause even more confusion. The design of a sound, clear and thorough selection policy is at the heart of reducing the occurrence of sports-related disputes. But preparing and writing selection criteria is far from easy. In this webinar, participants will learn a 4-step process in developing selection criteria as well as important considerations in carrying out a fair selection process. Special attention will be given to the necessary precautions around the use of subjective criteria in order to reduce the risk of disputes arising from the selection decisions.
