About the Grown-Up Swimming Movement
Grown-Up Swimming started in Atlanta, GA with a group of teams that wanted to have as much fun swimming as their kids have in summer league.That movement has grown-up (we won't apologize for that pun) to provide a low-pressure, high-fun swimming environment for hundreds of people of all ages and abilities. Literally: start swimming for the first time since college or high school, swim competitively for the first time ever, or take a break from your 6,000 yard Masters workouts to have some fun.
Example swim meet formats:
- Sprint Meet - The blazing fast 25s will give you a chance to get back to your 10 & under days with some short races!
- Traditional Meet - After warming up with the 25s, we will get back to the basics and swim the events and distances you have come to know and love at a swim meet.
- Distance Meet - The distance meet features 100’s of stroke events and the IM for those of us who love to play wall tag. Don’t worry though, we’ll be running 25’s in this meet too this year!
- Olympic Meet - Cue the fanfare! We partake in Olympic festivities in our own special way even in off years by swimming long course meters! We will stick to 50s (one lap) with the exception of a 100m (two laps) freestyle.
Here's what people are saying:
