Be part of the Chastain Park Tidal Waves Swim Team! 


Amazingly, our 2022 Tidal Waves Swim Team is about to start our 20th summer league season. The Tidal Waves have won EIGHT Championships in the Atlanta Swim Association in 2009, 2014 - 2019 and 2021. Swimming through two summers of COVID our Tidal Waves persevered in a shortened 2020 season, which had no championship meet, but won again in 2021. However, we are ready to get back to normal operations in 2022. Coach Scott Carter leads the program and the team is comprised of pool members and non-pool members from many different neighborhoods in the greater Atlanta area.

Have fun, while learning to swim correctly. The Tidal Waves team program is appropriate for all levels of swimmers from beginners to seasoned competitors ages 5 - 18 years-old as of June 1st. 19 year olds can swim if they are currently in high school. Also, on occassion, we have had an exceptional 4 year-old participate on the the Tidal Waves. Our highly experienced coaches emphasize proper form, goal awareness, and good sportsmanship



The Tidal Waves have been ASA League Champions 8 Times!

Mission Statement


The primary purpose of the Chastain Park Tidal Waves Swim Team is to teach team members the basics of competitive swimming, provide them an opportunity to learn and improve competitive swimming skills, and to do so in a unified, high spirited, team environment.

A successful season will be one where swimmers improve throughout the summer, learn to compete both individually and as a team, and build a strong sense of togetherness and team spirit, having fun all along the way.



Volunteer Information

Please be aware that we require each family to sign up for either four halves or two full meets.

6 & Under parents: Please keep in mind that you volunteer for the first half only. Those of you that volunteer on the pool deck for the first half of the meet need to plan to stay through backstroke.

7-8 parents: If your child swims in freestyle & back stroke, the same rule as above applies. BUT please make sure your 7-8 child is not in the Freestyle Relay which is at the end of the meet. It is very disappointing to others scheduled for the relay if one of the swimmers is missing.
