Programs & Services
ATAC provides several training group options to provide for all levels of skill and goal orientation for children, adolescents, and adults.
The main sessions are conducted at Trousdell Pool and Myers Park Pool (Wehunt pool) . Satellite sessions are conducted on Thomasville, GA, and seasonally at local country club pools.
ATAC offers a year-round competitive training and conditioning program, as well as Seasonal leagues (all four seasons) which run for aprox. 10 weeks each.
The basic requirement for ATAC membership is that the child be able to comfortably swim one length of a 25-yard pool in good freestyle form. A member of the coaching staff will conduct a short water test Try-Out Dates and Times to determine the appropriate group for the child's skill level.
GROUP CHANGES: ATAC coaches will address group changes during each quarter. Since the new quarter begins on September 1, we will talk with swimmers and parents who will be involved in group changes and we will make those changes officially on September 1. You will be notified individually.
