Frequently Asked Questions

How do we join Chattahoochee Gold?

Joining Gold is easy! We are constantly conducting try-outs at both pools, so just give our office a call at 770-928-1506. Our normal office hours are 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. If you call at another time or can't get through, a coach will return your call within 24 hours. We will then schedule a try-out time at your convenience! You can also click on here to fill out an envaluation form in order to get your information to a coach faster.


Do we have to go to meets?

Absolutely not. The meets are entirely optional for all swimmers. However, we do encourage the meets as this the 'dessert' after lots of hard and long practices! Meets are also an enjoyable way to spend time with your swimming buddies!


How do we sign-up for meets?

Check your email for an email blast that will include a link to sign up for meets on Team Unify. Seven days prior to the sign-up closing, you will get another email reminder.


How much do the meets cost?

Meet costs are dependent on the number of events swam and price per event (established by the team hosting the meet). An Average day of swimming at a meet will cost roughly between $15-$20. These fees are charged to the swimmers' accounts through Team Unify.


Do we have to come to all the practices?

No, you don't. The only groups that attendance policies are our top senior groups. Otherwise, we simply encourage the swimmers to make it to as many practices as possible, as the more you come, the faster your progress will be!


Are we allowed to do Summer League?

Yes, absolutely! We encourage our swimmers to participate in their summer league teams if they would still wish to do so. However, we do ask that the swimmers still attend primarily Chattahoochee Gold practices over the summer months.


What are the parental obligations?

The only parental obligation that we require is that you provide positive support for your swimmer! Besides paying the dues, we do not require any fundraising, working, or other duties. We do invite and ask parents to volunteer for meets (such as timing); if you interested, keep that in mind!


How do we pay?

Each swimmer's monthly fees are due on the first day of each month. The fees are payable through our team unify billing system via credit card. We require a 30-day drop notice. Reminder: do not give your fees to the coaches!


What equipment do we need?

We have a list that breaks down what each swimmer needs for their group. Click here to see the most updated list or visit the equipmenmt list tab under About Us in the navigation bar.
