National Events

Fees associated with registrations can be found on the AFF Fees and Charges page (click here).  The system accepts most debit and credit cards (including Amex), as well as debit Visa & Mastercard, and PayPal.  Note that registrations received after normal registration closes are deemed as late registrations, and will attract a late fee.

 If you affiliated with your State Association recently, and the system does not recognise you as an affiliated fencer, it is likely that your details have not been provided to the AFF by your State Association. In this case, you need to follow this up with your State Association in order to nominate in time.

The registration facility is accessible on all major computing platforms including Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome, and on smartphones (iPhone, Android) and tablets.

The Online Registration facility can be used for the following events (click the links to access).


 Australian Competitions

Event registration usually opens about six weeks prior to the start of the event. Standard registration usually closes approximately two weeks before the event. Registrations are generally accepted after the close of standard registrations however late fees apply.

Most events above will require you to be "in good standing" (e.g. have no debts owing and be correctly affiliated) with your home State Association or Federation.  Some may require the payment of a Team Levy.  As such, you should be aware that (a) entries and registrations are accepted subject to final confirmation by your home State Association or Federation, (b) any payments received will be offset first against debts owed to the AFF, then to any event entry or registration fee.

Whether or not you have used the ARPS facility before, please do not wait until the last minute to register, otherwise you may be subject to late registration fees.  Please note that the cut-off date for State affiliations for all National events is two days prior to the start of Late Entry (above).
