AAU Swim or Treat Meet Updates

Pool Address:

Warm Up Schedule / Meet Start:

  • 8:00-8:25 - Johns Creek and Midway
  • 8:25-8:50 - Georgia Tech, Hamilton Mill, Mt. Bethel, Roswell, Sugarloaf 
  • 8:55am - Meet Start

Important Info & Links: 

  • Parents are asked to stay upstairs in the stands unless volunteering
  • Heat Sheet

Here are some basic items you would need to prepare as a swim parent:

1. SHARPIE!  It would be best to write your swimmer’s events, heat & lane number on their arm. Do not expect your kid’s coach will be calling (or looking) for your kid to prepare for their race. At first, you will need to be aware which event is happening in the pool and get your child prepared for their event. As your child gets older and have had several swim meets under their belt, they learn to get ready in time on their own – but during the early years, you definitely want to be aware of what is happening in the pool and remind your child to get ready for their event.

2. Snacks (for both yourself & the swimmer) & a cooler with plenty of water bottles &/or sports drinks. Most swim meet venues do have a concession stand, but it’s probably a good idea to bring your own drinks and snacks. Granola bars, protein bars, fruits such as bananas are also good snacks to bring.

3. Meet Mobile app. Probably the most common go-to app for swim parents. It provides meet results, heat sheets, the meet schedule & more. The free version does not provide meet results, so if you’re OK with that you can try the free version first. But once you become a long-term swim parent, you will need the paid version.More details of the app can be found at: https://www.active.com/mobile/meet-mobile-app.

4. Spare swim cap and goggles. Maybe even a spare swimsuit! Unfortunate or unlucky things do happen from time to time and swim meets are not an exception. Bring a spare of everything in case a goggle breaks or a swim cap tears.

5. Positive attitude and encouraging words. If it’s your first swim meet, it is most likely that your kid is more nervous than you!  Your child is going up on the diving blocks for their first race in front of a crowd. Be supportive and offer plenty of encouragement.

6. Results from the meet will be posted to www.swimcloud.com by Sunday afternoon.

2023 Georgia Swimming LC Age Group State Championship

The much-anticipated 2023 Georgia Swimming Age Group LC Championships is here.  Hosted at the prestigious Georgia Tech Aquatic Center, get ready for a display of incredible talent and exhilarating races.  🌊🏆

Please take note of the following instructions from the meet organizers. Swimmers participating in the 800-meter and 1500-meter freestyle events on Thursday must bring their own timer and counter. Similarly, swimmers taking part in the 400-meter individual medley and 400-meter freestyle events are required to provide their own timer.

The Georgia Tech Aquatic Staff would like to request everyone's cooperation during the event. To allow easy movement for all attendees, please keep the downstairs and upstairs hallways clear and open. This will ensure that everyone can navigate the venue comfortably and without hindrance.  Swimmers, please take note that drying off before entering the hallways or going upstairs is highly appreciated. By keeping the walkways dry, we can maintain a safe environment for everyone present.  When moving between the stands and the pool, swimmers are kindly asked to use the staircase near the scoreboard on the pool deck. This designated route will efficiently guide you either up to the stands or down to the pool, allowing for smooth transitions throughout the event.

We hate asking but we are still in need of a few volunteers.  Please consider helping volunteer this weekend and supporting these remarkable athletes and celebrate the sport we all love.
