Posted on: 04.04.2016

On 24 March 2016 Wollondilly Shire Council hosted its annual reception for the talented Wollondilly athletes at the South West Sydney Academy of Sport (SWSAS).

Wollondilly Mayor Cr Simon Landow was joined by the Chairperson of SWSAS Mr Peter Campbell and Executive Director of SWSAS Mr Gerry Knights to celebrate the achievements of our talented local athletes.  SWSAS Board Members, staff and sponsors also attended, along with 22 athletes with their families.

Mayor, Cr Simon Landow said “The turn out on Thursday night was a great example of the dedication to sport that we have in our region. We certainly punch above our weight with amazingly talented athletes in our Shire. I’m proud of the association we have had with the South West Sydney Academy of Sport since 1987.”

The Wollondilly athletes and coaches that attended the evening participate in a variety of sports including AFL Development, Athletics, Basket Ball, Golf, Hockey, Lone Star, Triathlon and Ten Pin Bowling.
