Age Group Competition Reimagined!

Welcome to the first annual International Age Group Championship.

The 2023 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 at 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.
