Classification of Students for ACC Sport

 

Please return all completed classification forms to the appropriate association listed

 

What your students need to have completed:

All students apply for a provisional classification for any disability. This will enable them to compete at ACC carnivals, local competition and State level competitions.

National classifications will only be required if they plan to go on to compete at Australian All Schools and Australian Championships. On both occasions, students will have classifications prior to these events and they can also be classified at the national event prior to it starting as a last-minute option.
