The Australian Freediving Association is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the sport of freediving (apnea). We promote recreational and competitive freediving, ratify records, maintain Australian rankings, are responsible for National team selection and work towards the growth of freediving in Australia. We are the official Australian representative for the international governing body of the sport, Association Internationale pour le Développement de l’Apnée (AIDA). The AFA is responsible for sanctioning competitive freediving within Australia and providing recognition of all Australian National Records.
The AFA is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee (ACN 608 283 825), and has an expanding network of clubs around the country. AFA clubs provide a safe and fun environment to train for freediving. Check out our clubs page to find the one closest to you!
