Funding Requirement Details
The AER Technical Committee provides funds each year to give AER Judges support to travel to various AER events. Judges wishing to receive funding must be active in the AER community in the previous year as outlined in the AER Judge Travel Funding Requirements.
Judges applying for funding must have fulfilled two or more of the contributions outlined in section 2.3 of the AER Judge Travel Funding Requirements.
If due to extenuating circumstances, a judge cannot fulfil any of the listed requirements or contributions, they may apply in writing to the AER Judging Coordinator for an exemption.
Summary of Funding Conditions
Funding requests must be submitted to Gymnastics WA by the due date
Judges must make themselves available to attend State Team training or apply in writing to the AER Judging Coordinator for an exemption
Judges must judge at the relevant WA Championships in the year of the event
Judges must be available to judge ALL sessions of the relevant event if required
If a judge has been funded in the previous year and has not fulfilled the State Team requirements e.g. not contributed to a Judges Report or have brought disrepute to the WA AER judging community (either within the state or nationally), they will not be eligible for funding in the following year
Applicants must also declare if they are receiving other fund support - i.e. from GA, a Gymnastics WA HP Grant, Club funding etc
To claim funding, the following process must be followed:
A Gymnastics WA reimbursement form along with the appropriate Tax invoices / receipts must be submitted to Gymnastics WA in order to receive reimbursement post-event.
Applications for reimbursement must occur within 30 days of returning from the event / date of invoice.
All Tax Invoices must be in the
and not the name of a third party.
If using an online booking website to purchase flights or accommodation, it is essential that the company is able to provide Tax Invoices and not simply a receipt for the online transaction.
Please be aware that many online companies (such as Expedia) are unable to provide Tax Invoices for online payments.
For overseas expenditure, itemised receipts incuding the exchange rates at the time the expense was incurred are required. This is usually displayed on credit card / bank statements.
Judges will be advised prior to the AER Selection Meeting if their funding application has been successful. Any judges who are unsuccessful in receiving funding are still eligible to attend the event in question, but they must fully fund their trip.
