Bio Island support for Australian Junior Excellence Program
The Junior Excellence Program was established in 2007 to recognise, reward and incentivise junior swimmers who are on a key 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 to as targets throughout the year.
Swimming Australia is thrilled to announce that Bio Island will support our country’s next wave of swimmers, after signing on as the official naming rights partner of the Australian Junior Excellence (JX) Program until the end of 2022.
Sports Community is passionate about making sports club volunteering and administration easier.
Sports Community offers live training workshops around the country and free resources for clubs to help empower volunteers to
undertake their club roles with confidence.
If your Club is looking to up-skill their committee members, supporting them in their volunteer roles – so your Club can work more efficiently and effectively, make sure you check out their upcoming webinars and free resources.
Swimming Queensland Key Rings are provided to Clubs to award their members who have been Swimming Queensland Club members for 5 or more years.
5-year Key Rings are for members who are in their 5th or 6th year as a Swimming Queensland Club member and 7-year Key Rings are for swimmers who are in their 7th year (or longer period) of membership.
As Clubs are getting ready for their end of season awards, now is a great time to get in touch with Swimming Queensland and request that Key Rings are sent out to your club, so that you may award them to the relevant members of your Club.
If your Club has provided us with information in previous seasons and you do not have a record of members who have already received these, please refer to the list of recipients available on our website here.
If you have swimmers who are eligible for the recognition key rings please fill in the Club key ring template found below and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note, swimmers can only receive each key ring once. A swimmer's total membership may involve membership of more than one Club; the sole requirement is that they have been Swimming Queensland members for the relevant period. We appreciate that many Clubs, in completing the form, will have to rely on swimmers and /or their parents to inform them of their membership history. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
