The South West Academy of Sport is developing tomorrow’s champions.

We’re giving local junior athletes the edge on the sporting field – and its working. SWAS athletes can be seen excelling on state, national and international stages – both when they’re in the academy and long after they’ve graduated. And that’s because our programs are designed to ensure aspiring  sports men and women are set up for long and rewarding careers in sport. It’s about creating champions on and off the field, for today and tomorrow.
