Future Stars Program – this program is tailored for athletes who are ineligible for WRAS squad programs (ie. there is no program for their sport). It is expected that athletes are at the level of representing NSW in their sport.  Athletes must be turning 14-18 years of age in 2024. These scholarships are designed to assist pre-elite youth athletes in any sport, who are living or attending school in the western region.

The 2024 Future Stars program will run from November 2023 to July 2024. Athletes will graduate at the 2024 Presentation Evening in July.
