To qualify for the program, all that is required is for a financial member to achieve a long course YPS time standard listed at the link below.YPS_LOGOq

All awardees are automatically notified through their clubs by the relevant State Swimming Association.

Visit the YPS section of your State Association’s website to determine meets eligible for YPS.
Please note that where a swimmer has a birthday during the season and qualifies for YPS in two age groups OR qualifies for both JX and YPS, he/she will receive only one award, depending on the highest standard achieved in either of those age groups or programs. Qualifying in YPS Bronze is considered a higher standard than JX Gold. In addition, lead off times will not be recognised in the program, only individual swims will qualify.

  • YPS Gold times – the average third place finishing time at the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Australian Age Championships
  • YPS Silver times – the average tenth fastest time at the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Australian Age Championships
  • YPS Bronze times – qualifying times for the 2016 Australian Age Championships.

Please note that where the average time for a category within an age group is slower than that category in a younger age group, it has been adjusted to be equivalent to the younger category. Some times may have been manually adjusted to suit the program outcomes.
