Who Are We?
Welcome to the Georgia Tech Swim Club! We are an all-inclusive sports club representing the largest and most diverse cross section of Georgia Tech students on campus. Our swimmers are accomplished in and out of the pool, from winning back-to-back National Championships, to Thursday night trivia, senior design capstone, InVenture competition, and independent music, as well.
Our club values the competitive side of athletics, as well as the lighter side, competing in intramural sports and supporting Georgia Tech varsity athletics in their endeavors, from tailgating football games to getting courtside seats at basketball. Swim Club competes in meets across the southeast, from Auburn to Clemson, and Florida State to Tennessee.
The Georgia Tech Swim Club has proudly represented the Georgia Institute of Technology since the fall of 1995. First founded as a response to the lack of a varsity women’s team on campus, the club grew quickly to include men as well. In its twenty five years, the Yellow Jackets have consistently pushed boundaries the world of club swimming. Responding to the lack of an organized championship among competitive club swimmers in college, Tech founded and hosted the East Coast Championships, the largest independently-operated meet in American swimming for much of its existence, at the nation’s premier collegiate swimming venue, the McAuley Aquatic Center in Midtown Atlanta, site of the 1996 Olympics.
As the meet and the sport grew, it became necessary to incorporate club swimming into a national governing body. Thanks to US Masters Swimming, Georgia Tech Swim Club was able to help found College Club Swimming in 2017. Georgia Tech, the premier team in CCS, has won each of the first two undisputed national collegiate championships.
