Funding & Partnerships

The South West Academy of Sport funding model is based on successful regional academies in the eastern states of Australia, and our own Western Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS).

SWAS relies on financial support from government, business and the community to meet the costs of providing on-going high level training programs. This is the basis for our sponsor partnerships.

By becoming a SWAS funding partner you are helping to raise the profile of the South West as a region of excellence as well as raising your profile as a valuable contributor.

Sport is close to the heart of the people in the South West. Your involvement demonstrates your commitment to healthy pursuits and the youth in our region.



Sponsorship provides an opportunity for business and individuals to be identified with the development of talented young people and future champions through funding partnerships and in-kind support.

Attractive sponsorship deals are being offered.

Please contact SWAS CEO to discuss in more detail:
