JX & YPS Awardees

Junior Excellence (JX) Program

The 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 and Green standard, depending on their best performance/s during the season.


Youth Performance Squad

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