Lone Star 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 15-18 years of age in 2021. These scholarships are designed to assist pre-elite youth athletes in any sport, who are living or attending school in the western region.

The 2021 Lone Star program will run from November 2020 to July 2021. Athletes will graduate from the program at the 2021 Presentation Night in August.

Nominations for the 2021 Lone Star Program will open shortly.
