Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Notes

This was the site of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games swimming events. Originally built as an indoor/outdoor pool, it was fully enclosed in 2003 and a multi-purpose floor was built above the pool. The diving well is used for laps when swim teams are using the 50m pool.
In March 2016 the Aquatic Center was re-named in honor of the late Georgia Tech swimming coach and physical training professor, Coach Herb McAuley. The pool hosted the 2016 and 2022 NCAA Swim and Dive Championships and was named the #1 Collegiate Aquatic Facility in the country.

Facility Reviews

This is an excellent facility – but you need your own lock for the minimal locker rooms. Towels available.
This is a great facility. There is a coach on deck Mon., Wed., and Fri. at noon, but not that many people so you end up doing the workout by yourself. If you use the aquatic locker room, there are larger lockers (i.e., good for a brief case). They have locks for sale for $6.
[March, 2013]
Clean and tidy locker rooms. I was there around noon on a weekday and the pool was almost abandoned.
