The International Age Group Championship (IAGC) is truly the first of its kind. An event that will set the bar to new heights for age group swimming. The IAGC will bring together swimmers from around the world under one roof to compete in short course meters (SCM) instead of the usual short course yards (SCY). This will elevate age group swimming to an international level by allowing domestic athletes to compete with their international counterparts where SCM is standard. Hosted by the world-class Georgia Tech Aquatic Center, home of the 1996 swimming Olympics, an unparalleled level of production, entertainment, and media coverage will provide swimmers with an experience few outside of the pros get to have.
A meet unlike any other that allows kids from all over the world to come together and compete in a one-of-a-kind single age format.
The biggest stage to celebrate the best age group swimmers in the world!
A chance to unite the age group community on an international level, where both swimmers and coaches can meet their peers, share ideas, and strive to be the best they can be in an exciting competitive environment.
A new take on the traditional swim meet. Incorporating a more fun and entertaining meet for all in attendance with a level of professionalism only seen in the highest levels of pro swimming.
To become the preeminent organization in age group swimming through the creation of a meet that is both unrivaled in the experience for those that attend, and sets the standard for excellence in domestic and international swimming.
