History

    Georgia Tech Swim Club: 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.
