Netball ACT Athlete Exemption Form Request
Netball ACT acknowledges that to ensure a holistic approach is taken for athlete development consideration needs to be made at all levels of the athlete pathway for the management of athlete wellbeing and the sport/life balance. The exemption process provides athletes with the opportunity to request an absence from their daily training environment (DTE) to participate in commitments that sit outside of their athlete agreements but will not have an adverse impact on their long-term development or training load.
