The Wests Future Stars program will provide athlete education, skill and personal development sessions, high level coaching and cross sport coaching, sports science support services, media and profile development and invitations to high profile local Academy events. And, where available access to squad activities conducted by other NSW regional academies of sport, on a fostering basis.
Individual programs will vary in accordance to the ranking of the athlete and the classification of the sport.
