Developing tomorrow's champions


The South West Academy of Sport supports young athletes in the South West region of Australia to reach their potential.

An individual scholarship program and talent development pathways in Australian Rules Football, cricket, hockey, netball and tennis give local athletes the best possible chance of making it to the top of their sport.

Access to top tier coaches, specialist training and services such as sports psychology and nutrition round out the program and present athletes with the skills to build a long and rewarding career in sport.


Congratulations to SWAS alumni Sam Whiteman!

The emerging cricket star was selected to the Australia A team that took on India A in Brisbane in July.

Sam is pictured here with SWAS cricket head coach Orazio Santalucia and SWAS board member Troy Jones.
