Each year two WRAS athletes are invited to NSW Parliament House to attend the NSW Regional Academies of Sport Parliament Reception. This function provides regional academies with the opportunity to thank the state government for their support whilst showcasing some great achievements of regional athletes.

The Parliament Function sees over 100 guests including Academy athletes, Members of Parliament, Local Government, corporate supporters, family members, media and other Academy representatives gather to recognise the Academies achievements during the year and is an opportunity for the athletes of the Regional Academies of Sport of which WRAS is a member, to thank their local Members of Parliament for their strong support for the sporting success in their regions.

This event is a great showcase of the continued NSW State Government support towards the RASI success that for every $1 of state funding returns $24 back into regional NSW.
