Our Structure | Responsibilities | Profiles
The aim of ACF is to nationally develop, promote, administer and co-ordinate in a professional and efficient manner, the unique Australian sport of Calisthenics for the enjoyment and benefit of all.
We have two levels of decision making, the Committee of Management and The Council.
This level is responsible for the structures, processes, actions, resourcing and achievement of strategic directions identified by the Council.
It attains these outcomes primarily through the sub-committees of:
- ACF Coaching Committee (ACFCC)
- Adjudicators Advisory Board (AAB)
- Examiners Advisory Board (EAB)
It is also responsible to attaining external resources, managing external advocacy and communication links. The committee meets 3 or 4 times a year in person and occasionally via teleconference. Together with The Council, we enthusiastically try to mould the sport to identify and meet the changing needs of all stakeholders; stakeholders being participants, parents, and the government, in the face of competition from other sports and escalating costs.
