#Overarching Principles

Only athletes recognised as being Olympic or World Class prospects by their governing bodies will be eligible to participate in the programme.

Supporters need to be aware that meeting the above criteria does not guarantee an Athlete’s participation in the Olympics or World Championships but will ensure that the supporter’s assistance is directed at our most promising athletes.

Each TeamedUp programme is different and will be tailored to each Supporter’s specific requirements. Each programme comprises a single or multiple ‘events’.

#Booking Arrangements

Once we have a signed off programme, Supporters shallpay the agreed fee* to TeamedUp prior to the firstevent agreed as part of the programme.

* This fee comprises the Athlete fees and the TeamedUp fee but these can be invoiced separately if supporters wishto use different budgetse.g. CSR for the athletes.

If the Athlete Services have to be delayed by either party, the intention would always be to rearrange the relevant event. If the event had to be cancelled at the Supporter’s request more than 48 hours before the event ‘s scheduled start, the Supporter would would be requested to pay 20% of the cost. If less than 48 hours notice is given by a supporter, the supporter agrees to pay the Athlete the full fee for the Athlete Service. If an Athlete cancels an event, the Supporter would not be required to pay the relevant fee.
