FINA World Junior Swimming Championships


Since 2006, FINA organises World Junior Swimming Championships to allow young swimmers to develop through elite level competition. Every two years, about 500 swimmers aged between 14 and 18 years old gather together to test their skills among an up-and-coming field.

Rio de Janeiro (BRA) in 2006, Monterrey (MEX) in 2008, Lima (PER) in 2011 and Dubai (UAE) in 2013 hosted successful editions of the event.

In 2015, the international rendezvous will take place in Asia for the first time with Singapore (SIN) as host of the FINA World Junior Swimming Championships, from September 1-6. Age groups will be:

GIRLS: 14 – 17 years on 31 December 2015 (born 2001, 2000, 1999 and 1998)
BOYS:  15 – 18 years on 31 December 2015 (born 2000, 1999, 1998 and 1997)
