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 2025. These scholarships are designed to assist pre-elite youth athletes in any sport, who are living or attending school in the western region.

The 2025 Future Stars program will run from October 2024 to June 2025. Athletes will graduate at the 2025 Presentation Evening in June.
