SWAT Towel Drive for Veterans at the Bill Behrens Veterans Invite!
Please bring your gently used or new swim or bath towels to the meet on November 9th and 10th!
All towels will be donated by SWAT to The Gateway Center, just a few miles away from Georgia Tech, which offers free showers, housing and critical social services to men, women and children experiencing homelessness. A large percentage of those served are our veterans who are helped by the Veteran’s Programs at Gateway in collaboration with the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs.
Gateway Center is open 24 hours a day and helps our veterans with emergency housing, mental health services, and access to programs to help them rebuild their lives.

Thank you very much for your generous donations and support! There will be collection bins near the Swim Shop.

Athens Fall Classic Meet Updates
ABSC (Meet Host) will be splitting boys and girls up in a slightly different fashion to ensure that neither competition course runs too long. Senior Girls and 12 & Under Boys will be in Pool A (beside the diving well) while Senior Boys and 12 & Under Girls will be in Pool B (under the observation deck).
Parking: Parking is available in the Ramsey Center Surface lots and deck and lot E-03 (click here for maps and further information). Please note on Sunday that part of the course for the Athens Half Marathon goes by the Ramsey Center. Significant numbers of runners will be passing by the pool during the race, which means access to the pool may be limited on Sunday morning between 8:00 am and 9:15 am. Cars that are inside the Ramsey Loop by 8:00 am should not have a problem getting in, but those who are late may experience longer delays than normal.
- Saturday 12:00-12:35pm
