McCallie/GPS Aquatics is dedicated to excellence in competitive swimming by teaching technique, training and performance in a positive environment for swimmers of all ability levels. 

We strive for the team atmosphere, and belonging.

We are your McC/GPS family. 




At McC/GPS, we provide a challenging and stimulating team environment where every swimmer feels important and encouraged. Swimmers develop skills in setting goals while enjoying the thrill of achieving personal and team victories. Qualities such as loyalty, honesty, fair play, integrity, perseverance, and self discipline are also stressed.

Most importantly, we have fun! 

We feel that our lower coach to swimmer ratio, the high level of training, and the experience of our staff makes swimming for McCallie/GPS Aquatics the best place for your swimmers.

To provide a complete teaching and training environment
where every swimmer is valued and encouraged to excel inside and out of the pool.

From novice to national champions, our goal is to develop
fundamentally sound athletes who enjoy competing.



In August 1991, the administrations of Girls Preparatory School and McCallie School decided to add a year-round swim club to their coordinate activities, which they named Scenic City Aquatic Club. Since the inception of SCAC, the team has developed athletes who have participated and won championships locally, nationally, and internationally. Our athletes of all ages have represented themselves well regardless of their level of competition. 

After over twenty years as SCAC, both schools administrations decided to change the club name to give McCallie & GPS more recognition locally, regionally, and nationally. Thus McCallie/GPS Aquatics was born. 



McCallie/GPS Aquatics is a year-round team competing as part of USA Swimming. Being year-round, we practice and compete throughout the entire year. Even though we offer practices all year long, swimmers are not required to particiate in the season's entirety. We encourage the participation in other sports and activitities, to make a well-rounded athlete. 

We are a member of the Southeastern Swimming LSC (Local Swimming Committees) and compete at meets in the Chattanooga area, as well as in Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia. Meets are selected that have appropriate standards allowing all of our swimmers, from novice to national champion, to compete at their own skill level.

Our program is divided into two (2) seasons, with a championships meet at the end of each:


       We practice and compete in a 25-yard pool.



       We practice and compete in a 50-meter pool. Ex: The Olympics are held in the 50-meter format.
