Our Communities


FWAS supporting local communities since 1997

FWAS supports the development of disadvantaged athletes in the most rural and remote areas of Far West NSW.  The residents in our region live in small towns and rural community areas west of Dubbo.  The approximate 35,000 residents that reside in our region live in rural and remote towns and communities of Trangie, Bourke, Lightning Ridge, Cobar, Milparinka, Broken Hill, Lake Cargelligo and the many others in between.

The FWAS works to help provide sports development training and educational services to the residents of these areas.  As a non-profit organisation, we work with the local people and businesses of these communities to provide their local athletes the sporting pathway opportunities that they would otherwise not have.   

Many of our talented athletes train in our development camps and clinics have to travel great distances to reach specialized training and education and education in their sport.  Our academy has a proud tradition of assisting these athletes, coaches and families in hopes to one day help these dedicated people reach state and national level competition.   

Through our programs, the commitment of these athletes, coaches and families in the far west are valued and supported as we stride to bring them the opportunities that they deserve.  The residents in our region have a strong passion to see their young athletes make it to the highest levels of sport in NSW.  


Our volunteers are the life blood of our operations.  For every athlete who has a dream to succeed, there is a volunteer working to help that athlete to fulfil that dream.  Our hundreds of past volunteers have helped to provide rewarding experiences for many athletes and our current volunteers are the saving grace of many disadvantaged athlete families who carry the burdens of extreme challenges through the area. 


 To become a volunteer at one of our next FWAS events in your area, give us a call and we will show you how you can help contribute as a volunteer to help in the future development of our young athletes.
