The Bio Island 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. Delivered by Swimming Australia, with the support of Bio Island and in conjunction with all states and territories, junior swimmers will now have access to a host of elite role models, including the program’s national ambassadors – Dolphins Shayna Jack and Jack McLoughlin – and receive consistent merchandise, invitations to clinics run by experienced coaches such as Wayne Lawes, and congratulatory messages of their achievements via Swim Central. The new Bio Island Australian Junior Excellence Program will come into effect for the upcoming 2019-20 season.
Swimmers aged from 9 to 13 years, who accomplish times set by Swimming Australia, qualify at gold, silver, bronze or blue standard, depending on their best performance/s during the season.
All ‘approved’ swim meet results are loaded into Swimming Australia’s Swim Central and used as results towards an overall award for each individual swimmer. At the end of the qualification period, Swimming Australia will publish the JX results on the website.
