This is your opportunity to connect your school to the world of international sport and benefit your student athletes in the process. AFEC is an international accreditation mark for secondary school, who support athletes to achieve their education and athletic goals. We like to think of these are 'passion pathways'.

 

Our accredited schools provide flexible learning pathways to student-athletes as well as excellent support services. They provide the opportunity for student-athletes to continue working towards their sporting ambitions without sacrificing other aspects of their lives such as academics.

 

Once accredited, on-going support is provided with professional development workshops, a network of schools to share ideas and best practices with as well as broader opportunities with WAoS partners.

 

Student Athletes

Student-athletes often have to make difficult choices in balancing sport and education.

It is well-documented that where students forgo education for sporting aspirations they limit their choices when retiring from competitive sport. So at the end of a sporting career...what next? An education is vital for student athletes to prepare for a dual career approach. Where they can balance their education, sport and social time with

family and friends.
