2023-2024 Swimming NSW State Recognition Programs

Swimming NSW is proud to have the most swimming members in the country, comprising swimmers from all age groups and areas across the State. Swimming NSW also appreciates that there are many young swimmers and those based in the regional areas who are performing exceptionally well in the competitive space and are currently not on the State Performance Pathway. To supplement the Performance Pathway Program, the Junior Development Program and Regional Age Program have been established and recognises these swimmers and coaches, providing further development opportunities and motivation for their swimming journey.

Junior Development Program

  • Objective
  • The Junior Development Program is designed to recognise proficient young medley swimmers across NSW and promote the importance of coaching all strokes early in a swimmer’s development. By focusing on medley swimming at this level, NSW will build a solid base of technically sound swimmers as they move through the pathway.

  • Selection Criteria
  • Males 12-13 years and Females 11-12 years may qualify for the Junior Development Program. The top 3 swimmers from each age group in the 200m IM will be eligible for the program. The selection meets are:

    • 2022 SNSW Junior Metro Championships (26 – 27 November 2022)
    • 2023 Country Championships (17 – 19 February 2023)
  • Athlete List

Regional Development Program

  • Objective
  • Swimming NSW has identified that there are many talented swimmers and coaches residing in regional areas. By implementing a Regional Development Program led by the SNSW Regional Coaching Director, support is provided to identified individuals who can challenge and boost the performances of their local squad mates.

  • Selection Criteria
  • Swimmers will be selected based not only on performances but using talent identification processes. Male swimmers aged 14 – 16 years and female swimmers aged 13 – 15 years are eligible for this program. Swimmers will be identified by the SNSW Coaching Director and Regional Coaching Director. A maximum of 12 female and 12 male swimmers will be selected.
