Phoenix Foundation JX Clinic
Swimming Northern Territory is pleased to offer, as part of the 2023 Country Swimming Championships, an opportunity for swimmers aged 9-13yrs to take part in a Phoenix Foundation JX clinic with our meet ambassador - Chelsea Hodges. The Phoenix Foundation is the new season sponsor of Swimming Australia's JX program.
The Junior Excellence Program was established in 2007 to recognise, reward and incentivise junior swimmers who are on part of their swimming journey, learning and refining as they develop into senior swimmers. Each year Swimming Australia releases the JX criteria and standards for the forthcoming season which swimmers, parents and coaches can use as targets throughout the year.
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 the 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.
The 2023 Country Swimming Championships JX Clinic will take place at Parap Pool over the course of Friday 29th September. Further information and the opportunity to register for the clinic is now available on the link below.
