Get your tickets to this year's SWAS awards

Want to be part of one of the biggest sports nights in the South West? Here’s your chance.

Members of the public are invited to attend the South West Academy of Sport’s upcoming annual awards dinner.

Attendees will not only join in celebrating local athletic and coaching talent, but also hear from inspiring sports stars who have reached the highest representative levels in their field.

The guest speaker for the event will be Fremantle Dockers player Connor Blakely who was part of the Peel Thunder side that made history this year by winning the club’s first WAFL grand final.

A previous participant in the SWAS football program, Blakely took home the SWAS male athlete of the year award in 2014.

Also set to step on to the stage is Olympian Jesse Phillips who will emcee the event.

Paralympian Brad Scott and Olympians Ryan Bailie and Alana Nicholls will participate in a question and answer session.

The SWAS annual awards dinner will be held on Friday December 2 in the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre’s Cube Theatre.

Tickets are $85 for adults or $60 for SWAS athletes and juniors. To book your place at the event, contact SWAS on 9795 1783 or .
