Defining elite athletes
For athletes to access the support of the EAFU at ECU a student must be recognised by one of the following as an elite athlete:
- Australian Institute of Sport
- Western Australian Institute of Sports
- AFL Players’ Association
- Rugby League Players’ Association
- Rugby Union Professionals’ Association
- Australian Professional Footballers’ Association
- Australian Cricketers’ Association
- National senior squad members from ACE supported sports
Consideration will also be given to students who are national representatives in international sporting events. Other levels of representation such as State representation will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
In ALL cases, a letter (from the state or national officiating body of your sport) confirming your proof of selection and participation will be required.
