The 2018 and 2019 Atlanta Adult League Champion Team (yes— that’s indeed Garden Hills!) is planning a return to both practice and competition in 2021! The Atlanta Adult League is planning to resume meets—perhaps in a less crowded format this summer. Plans are to possibly split the league into 2 divisions for the regular meets— hopefully by the August Championship Meet, the virus will not be a major threat.
As of now (March 14) we are having to remain flexible with practice start dates and procedures. The SignUp Genius system that was used last year for practice sign-ups may remain so that we avoid swim lane overcrowding.
Our Head Coach will once again be our own swimmer and former Tennessee Volunteer varsity competitor, Genevieve Jarun. She has been a coach at Woodward Academy over the past few years and is an exceptional leader for our team.
As virus trends and vaccinations are taking good directions, we are optimistic that there will be a season.
Keep an eye out for further team announcements regarding practice start dates and procedures here on the website.
The Garden Hills Adult Swim Team is comprised of dozens of swimmers of all ages (20’s to 60’s) and skill levels. There are dedicated practice swim lanes for those that are faster, to intermediate speeds, to more relaxed or beginner swimmers. We also provide as-needed coaching with strokes, flip turns, and racing dives. New adult swimmers join every year— some haven’t swum a meet in years or decades—or ever! It’s a great way to stay in shape and enjoy some team camaraderie.
Our practices, led by experienced competitive swimmers and coaches, typically begin in mid-May and extend through at least mid -August. Practices are scheduled for early-mornings Monday through Thursday, with a Saturday morning practice option as well. The Start Date and Practice Times will be updated as we find out more about how our Summer 2021 Season will shape up.
The ASA Adult League is set up for swimmers age 19 and up. Swimmers compete in 10 year age group increments (19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79…..) and relays are a fun and high scoring part of every meet. The ASA Adult League is geared to swimmers of varied speed and skill levels that are leading a busy lifestyle. In other words, if you enjoy a social group– and meets without high pressure– this league is for you! In fact, the league coordinator calls it the league for “beer drinkers that like to swim!” There are typically 5 meets each summer— early June through the Championship Meet in mid-August. The first 4 meets are normally held on Friday evenings with a cookout/ social scheduled after most meets.
Stay tuned for updates regarding a modified meet schedule for Summer 2021.
