We provide independent, cost-effective dispute resolution services to sporting bodies, athletes and support personnel. 

What we offer

We can offer mediation services to clubs and members of Gippsland sporting clubs. 

A GippSport staff member (who holds a current national accreditation in mediation services) helps parties work out their own solutions, focusing on mutual interests and finding a mutual agreement.  The agreement can be in writing (if both parties agree) but is a non-binding legal agreement.

What is the process

The mediation session takes up to 3 hours and follows the 12 step mediation process.  This process is a nationally accredited system and has been proven to have a good success rate as both parties come up with their own solutions and the mediator facilitates the process ensuring respect, fairness and equity is upheld.
