Age Group Swimming

The First Global Age Group Championship

December 17, 18, 19 & 20, 2024

The Global Age Group Championship is truly the first of its kind. An event that will raise the bar for swim meets to come in both competition and entertainment. The GAGC 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 establish and develop age group swimming on an international level by allowing domestic athletes to have a basis to compare to their international counterparts where SCM is standard. The world class facility, the Liberty Natatorium, and unparalleled level of production will provide swimmers with an experience few outside of the pros get to have. Entertainment throughout the duration of the meet and extensive media coverage will reinvent age group swimming and leave a lasting impression on all those in attendance.
