The 2018 Georgina Hope Foundation Australian Age Swimming Championships will be held at the Sydney Olympic Park and Aquatic Centre from April 21 to April 28. The Age Championships will be a fantastic opportunity for the future of our sport to compete, right off the back of a home Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. It will also act as the selection event for the Junior Pan Pacific Championships to be held in Suva, Fiji and the Oceania Championships to be held in Papua New Guinea.

Project H2 gr0w
Swimming Australia's High Performance Team are conducting research at the 2018 Georgina Hope Foundation Australian Age Swimming Championships to examine how growth and maturation influences the development of young swimmers. We'd love you to get involved and take part in this ground breaking research project that will benefit you personally as well as the sport.
Report to the Dawn Fraser room (downstairs from the spectator seating) between 8am-12am and 4pm-8pm each day during Age Nationals. There is a large banner with the Project H2grOw outline at the top of the stairs down. Each swimmer is invited to the maturation measurement station to have some basic information recorded (name, date of birth, stroke preference etc.). They will then have their height, weight and sitting height measured by Swimming Australia researchers. All information will be collected in approximately 10 minutes.
