Youth Performance


About the Program

The Australian Youth Performance Squad (YPS) is an exciting 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.

Swimmers will have from 1 May to the end of the Australia Age and Australian Multi Class Age Championships to register a qualifying time.

YPS qualifiers receive recognition by way of:

  • A customised towel based on level achieved
  • Poster
  • Cap
  • DVD (See preview above)
  • Backpack
  • Name published on this website
