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 2022. These scholarships are designed to assist pre-elite youth athletes in any sport, who are living or attending school in the western region.

The 2022 Lone Star program will run from November 2021 to July 2022. Athletes will graduate from the program at the 2022 Presentation Night in August.

Nominations for the 2022 Lone Star Program have now closed.
