I'll be in Atlanta Monday the 11th and maybe Tuesday the 12th of March for work. Looking for a team to swim with in the morning on at least one of those days. Any recommendations?

That reminds me... Is Emory a 50m outdoor pool? If so, is there an open lap swimming session available to the general public? What is the cost? I'm looking ahead to training for Summer Nationals and I would ideally like to find an outdoor 50m pool; especially for training the backstroke portion of my 400 IM. Thanks!

Looks like they actually have me staying a good distance outside of the city itself. Northwest, up near "Cumberland Mall". I don't mind driving to swim at a good pool or with a fun team, though.

Look up the Georgia Masters Killer Whales and ask if you can drop in. They swim at Westminster which is much closer to where you will be staying.

Cobb County Central Aquatic Center is very close, plus you're driving away from rush-hour traffic. They open at 6:00 and MWF there is usually a triathlon group in 4 lanes (10 lane pool) but no other organized workouts. You'd likely get your own lane though. I'm usually there at 3:00- 4:15.
