Athlete withdrawals

For withdrawals from HPP training commitments of less than three weeks you do not need to submit a withdrawal form or have approval from the High Performance management; you only need to contact the NWC or ANWC in your state for approval for the absence.

For withdrawals from HPP training commitments of greater than three weeks you need to fill in the HPP withdrawal form and email to the HPM.  The withdrawal will then be considered by the Executive Chair to the HPP and the HPM and you will be notified of the decision.

For approved withdrawals from HPP training commitments of greater than four weeks HPP training fees can be suspended for the duration of the withdrawal. Individual lesson fees are suspended immediately for the duration of the withdrawal. Squad training fees are suspended after four weeks for the duration of the withdrawal.

For withdrawal from all camps or AFT competition commitments you need to fill in the AFT withdrawal form and email to the HPM. The withdrawal will then be considered by the Executive Chair to the HPP and the HPM and you will be notified of the decision.

The withdrawal forms can be found on the AFF web site under the High Performance Program Menu, HPP Forms & Documents (click here).

Approval for Overseas tours
