Located in Peachtree City, GA, our club is a USA year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to international competitor.
All of our coaches, as members of the American Swim Coaches Association and USA Swimming have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.
We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well-rounded competitive swim team.
TRAINING LEVELS & FEES
SCAT is a USA Swimming year-round competition swim team. We also offer developmental programs for swimmers interested in competitive swimming. Requirements for each level have been carefully considered to best suit the needs of all swimmers. Coaches will have final say in Swim Level placement.
Our programs for younger and/or less experienced swimmers include our Seasonal sessions during the calendar school year and the recreation swim team in the summer. Those swimmers who continue in our program demonstrate a level of ability, commitment, and maturity that lead them toward success. Due to space and time constraints (we share a pool with the community and 5 high school teams), we carefully place our swimmers in appropriate training groups and have limited space within each group.
Kedron Aquatic Center, offers swim lessons for younger and/or less experienced swimmers. We encourage you to contact their Aquatics Office at 770-631-2525.

All Accounts will be assessed a $50 Volunteer Fee in the month of October, November and December for a total of $150 per year per family. The best way to offset these fees are by volunteering to be a timer, stroke & turn judge (certification required) or official at any of our SCAT hosted meets at Georgia Tech. SCAT offers a $50 credit for each session worked at a meet. If two family members work, both will be credited for the session.
MISSED PRACTICES & HOLIDAYS
Swim fees will not be pro-rated for absences or vacations. No fees will be refunded for missing practices, unless due to injury, in which a physician’s note is to be provided. Southern Crescent Aquatic Team is a year round team and fees are not pro-rated during holidays or for canceled practice sessions over which we have no control.
