We have just released our 2023 Long Course Meet Schedule and you can find it under the 2023 Long Course Schedule tab. As a result, we have moved the 2022-23 Short Course Schedule to a sub-tab under the new long course one. As this is early, some meets may be subject to change.

Congratulations to all of our Excel swimmers who competed this weekend in the 2023 Mardi Gras meet. This was our final regular season meet and what a way to finish it off! Among many things to celebrate, was our Southeastern Championship team passing the 100 swimmer mark. A special thank you to our parent volunteers for a great short course season. Every best time, every win and every smile were only possible because of your efforts. The 2022- 2023 season was special largely because of you! Mardi Gras By the...

Congratulations to all our 10 and Under Swimmers who swam in the Ho Ho Ho Invite this weekend. The enthusiasm that our youngest swimmers bring to the program is staggering. Such a great way to see the future of Excel Aquatics! A huge thank you to our volunteers for all their efforts. Shepherding that many young swimmers is never easy but through the efforts of parents (from all teams) officials and even older Excel swimmers, we were able to get 260 young athletes through the meet in just over two...

The 2022 Meet of Champs is in the books and what a meet it was! After three days of prelims/finals, best times, new qualifiers and tons of excitement, we've been able to take deep dive into the results and are thrilled with the results. For starters, our 68% lifetime best swims is especially impressive considering that many prelims swims are swum only with the goal of coming back at night! We also are excited to announce that we've added 17 new swimmers to the SES Championship team which includes new...

The Excel Aquatics program and three of our swimmers were recently featured in an article in the Tennessean published on November 27th. It featured Gavin Fu, Callum Farneth, and Charlie Turner since those swimmers won every event they swam at the recent TNAQ meet. We are so proud to have had our team and swimmers featured in this article. It's a short read, so enjoy.

Congratulations to all our Excel swimmers who competed this last weekend in 1 of our 2 meets. We had 42 swimmers make their way to Atlanta to swim the Chattahoochee Gold October Open while another 14 swam at the McCallie/GPS October Invite. Both meets were huge successes for our team and well run by their hosts. We want to extend a special "Congratulations!" to Gracen Bailey who swam a 2:03.79 in the 200 Back earning her a NCSA Junior Cut and a spot on our National Team! A special "Thank...
