In very rare circumstances a service provider will be considered for involvement even if they have not met all the qualifications outlined. A practitioner who has vast experience working with high performance athletes, major games experience and has played a significant leadership role within their field will have the opportunity to contribute upon review by the SMSCS Board of Directors. This practitioner must be seen to be in the process of achieving the required qualifications, or will be granted equivalency by virtue of their standing and experience. In any case the exception must be seen to be in the best interests of the athletes, without compromising the support system standards of the SMSCS.
