2017-18 Fall Registration for Returning Swimmers


It’s time to register and reserve your spot for the 2017-2018 season. Schedules and monthly fees can be found here: http://goldswim.com/swim-team/practice-schedule/. You should see the “Long Course” (summer), and the fall or “Short Course” schedules for each pool. If you have questions about which group your swimmer will be in for the fall, please contact your coach. Coaches’ e-mails are accessible here: http://goldswim.com/swim-team/staff/.

To register: https://www.teamunify.com/MemRegStart.jsp?team=gacsci. Registration is now open for returning swimmers at $240 for the Competitive Groups (Silver, Silver Adv., Gold, Gold Adv., High School, Sectional, Sectional Adv., Senior, National). After June 30, the registration fee goes to $250. The Pre-Competitive Groups (Intro, and Technique/Fitness) will pay $65 to register for the entire year.

As you go through the online registration, you will choose between Competitive Yearly Track, Competitive Monthly Track, or Pre-Competitive Groups. There is a description of each. You will be asked to read and sign a medical waiver, liability waiver, team agreement, and a financial agreement. The financial agreement applies to whichever of the three tracks you choose.

For the new season, we will no longer be accepting personal or online checks, or automatic draft. Everyone is required to have a Discover, MasterCard, or Visa number on file in your Team Unify account. Once you have completed the online registration and paid your registration fee, a receipt will be e-mailed to you.

Step by step registration instructions are as follows:

Swim w/Dad Invitational Meet Recap


Despite the fact that Chattahoochee Gold has attended the Swim w/Dad meet at Georgia Tech for a number of years now, there is still the common belief that all swims Dad’s must participate in the meet. I am happy to announce that this is in fact not the case especially since the time line was tight enough already.

With that said the weekend of June 11th & 12th was the perfect opportunity for swimmers to get in some fast swims in a fast pool with some good competition.

Gold was well represented in the top heats and a number of swimmers won their events including:

Jaclyn Hill, Lawson Weddington, Hannah Lagod, Parker Ciarmella, Emma Cole, Elizabeth Isakson, Caroline Tom, William Iglar, Hadden Duling Ford Johnson, Ashley Case, Gia Pergolini, Jordan Edwards, Jack Dalmolin, Zach Bunner, Anna Case, Mihalis Deliyiannis, Evan Garrison, Sarah Brown & Harper Johnson

Congratulations to the following swimmers who picked up their first ever State Qualifying Times, Gavin Halusic, Sadie Arcolie and Leia Lankford.

Swimmer of the Meet: Sarah Jenacova, Charles Barry, Maddie Halloran, Olivia Mierzewski, Maddie Lewis, Jenna McKay, Zach Belacanech, Kara Cullinan, Danielle Zeitlin, Mihalis Deliyiannes and Emma Letsch.

Caroline Tom, Katherine Hay, Noah Richardson, Lily Alderman, Jonathan Young, Michelle McCord, Maura McGlynn, Chase Moore, Laura Miller, Isabella Postel, Ford Johnson, Grant Davis, Payton Smith & Connor Snow.

Meanwhile a number of Gold swimmers took part in the Atlanta Classic at Georgia Tech, swimming against some of the best swimmers in the World including Nathan Adrian, Caleb Dressel and Katie Ledecky.

Mako Mania Trophy Meet


The Mako Mania “Trophy Meet” has been on the Chattahoochee Gold meet schedule for a number of years. With big qualifying meets either side of this meet, this was the chance for the younger swimmers, newer swimmers and swimmers who just missed the necessary time standards required for the qualifying meets to swim fast and have their moment to shine. An added incentive was the opportunity to earn a trophy, which was awarded for any swimmers finishing in the Top 3 in their events.

Gold swimmers did not disappoint with a large number of swimmers earning trophies, but more importantly dropping time in their events. Gavin Halusic and Oliver Van Peteghem led the way with 9 top 3 finishes and 7 top 3 finishes respectively. They were joined with a number of other swimmers including:

Eliana Babayeuskaya (3rd in the 200 Breast)
Faith Cale (3rd in the 100 Fly)
Isabella Decker (3rd in the 200 IM)
Thomas Iglar (3rd in the 50 Breast & 2nd in the 100 Free)
Annalia Jansons (3rd in the 100 Free, 2nd in the 100 IM & 3rd in the 100 Back)

Maxwell Lagan (2nd in the 25 Breast)
Jonathan Ravid (1st in the 200 Fly, 2nd in the 100 Breast)
Harris Schwartz (2nd in the 50 Back)
Katie Selmer (3rd in the 100 Free, 3rd in the 100 Back & 3rd in the 100 Breast)
