How Do I Join?


At ABSC we don’t just swim — we swim as a team!

We’re glad you’re interested in joining the team. If you haven’t yet read about our history and our philosophy, please do so.

You might also want to take a moment of familiarize yourself with our coaching staff and practice groups. If you’ve done all this and are ready to take the next step, here’s how to complete the process.

The first thing to do is fill out our pre-registation form to get on the list for one of our swimming skills evaluations. Once you have been evaluated by a member of the coaching staff and the proper group determined, all you need to do is download and complete the following two forms and bring them, along with payment, to the Fall Orientation Session.

For Underdogs and Gups, this session will take place at the Athens YWCO on Monday, September 12th at 5:00 pm. The session for Pups, Superpups, and Dawgs, will be the same day, but at the Ramsey Center beginning at 6:00 pm. Returning swimmers need not attend these sessions, but should start their regular schedule beginning Tuesday, September 13th.

If you are unable to make it to the Fall Orientation, these forms, along with a check for the fees should to be sent to the ABSC Treasurer and USA-Swimming Registration coordinator at the following address:

Ceci Churchwell
PO Box 7595
Athens, GA 30604

Fees are calculated based on a swimmer’s group assignment. Rates for each group can be seen by clicking the links to the right. Swimmers need to be registered within two weeks of beginning practices with the program.

If you have any inquiries about billing or registration at any point in the process, please contact Ceci Churchwell.

Thanks for your interest–we look forward to having you on the team!
