The APC receives funding from the Australian Sports Commission/Australian Institute of Sport to deliver a Paralympic winter sport program that achieves performance targets identified through the Australia's Winning Edge 2012 - 2022 High Performance strategy.

Attached to this page are documents which outline the squad and team selection criteria, and the athlete eligibility criteria for both the 2014/15 Alpine skiing squad and the 2014/15 Snowboard squad.
