Juniors

Fun, family and friends.

The Junior Program is designed especially for junior transplant recipients aged from 4-17. This is a unique opportunity for children and teens to shine in a variety of events and activities, meet other kids just like them and hopefully take home a medal for “show and tell”.

Siblings, friends and family can also join in the fun and participate in the Supporter Competitor category in a selected range of sports. 

Juniors compete in events designated by gender in the following age groups:

Juniors 15 or 17 years of age may be considered to compete in an adult age event where the event is not offered in their age category. Please email sports@transplant.org.au for consideration. 

To view the list of sports available for each age group see the table below.

Sports available to Transplant Competitors and Supporter Competitors in the age category are marked YES.

Sports available to Transplant Competitors only are marked TX.
