          • H2gr0w Testing
          • sq-h2gr0w-logo

            Swimming Australia, Swimming Queensland and The University of Sydney - Project H2grOw

            Would you like to identify your son or daughter’s maturation status?

            Would you like to track maturation status with swimming performance?

            At the 2021 Speedo National Preparation Meet & Jess Schipper Challenge, Swimming Queensland in conjunction with The University of Sydney will be continuing their research in the Project H2grOw initiative. This research involves tracking growth and maturation in developing swimmers and establishing solutions that account for that growth.

            The tests will involve measuring height, sitting height and weight and as an outcome athletes will receive an individual report suggesting future growth patterns.


            Previously tested athletes are invited to be retested as this will give the athletes further insight into their H2grOw development.


            How to be Tested – New and Continuing athletes


            Date:               Saturday, 20 & Sunday, 21 March 2021

            Time:               8:00am through to the end of the day’s racing


            • Any continuing athletes (have been measured previously)
            • Any new athletes aged 11-15yrs

            Even if an athlete is post-maturation the testing will still provide useful information



            • For continuing athletes: no documentation is required
            • For new athletes: parents will be required to complete the registration process via the QR code that will be available in the meet program and posted around the venue            


            Location:         H2grOw Testers will be situated in the MR1 room (accessed via the hallway behind the coaches room). Athletes will need to make their own way to the MR1 room. Parents are not able to accompany them
