  • The school must submit the required documents via the ASAA’s Online Appeal portal, which is located on the ASAA website and accessible only by the school Principal and Athletic Director.
  • Please note that both the Letter of Appeal to the Executive Director and the Letter of Appeal to the EAC MUST be signed by school administration.

B. In the event that the applicant member wishes to proceed by special conference call meeting, the applicant member shall pay to the ASAA a deposit in the amount of $750 of which $250 is non-refundable if the appeal is successful. If you require an appeal to be heard outside any of these dates you may request a special conference call appeal.
