Australian Junior Excellence Program (JX)

The Georgina Hope Swimmers Foundation Australian Junior Excellence Program (JX), recognises rewards and encourages junior swimmers who, through their development of aquatic skills and fitness, achieve a high standard of swimming excellence.

Under the program, swimmers aged from 9 to 13 years, who accomplish times set by Swimming Australia, qualify at Gold, Silver, Bronze or Green standard, depending on their best performance/s during the season.

For doing so, qualifiers receive special recognition by way of: 

•         A distinctive JX cap (9 and 10 year olds) or JX shirt (11 to 13 year olds)

•         A JX certificate signed by the National Youth Coach and members of the Australian swim team

•         A JX motivational poster featuring elite Australian swimmers

•         Publication of their name on this website

2013/14 Criteria

Swimming Australia will once again partner with the state and territory swimming associations to provide the JX Program in 2014. The 2013/14 JX criteria and time standards are available for download:

Australian Youth Performance Squad (YPS)

The Australian Youth Performance Squad (YPS) is an exciting new initiative designed to reward swimmers aged 13-18 for their performances in the pool. The YPS is an extension of the Junior Excellence program which recognises and rewards 9-13 year olds. Similar to Junior Excellence, YPS rewards swimmers for achieving particular time standards set by Swimming Australia.
