Get your swim suits ready! The Murphey Candler Marlins are looking forward to a fantastic 2023 season.

WHEN: The MCP Marlins swim season will run from May 15 - June 30. However, it might be longer if your swimmer qualifies for the Georgia Recreation and Park Association (GRPA) State meet (July 14 or 15).


  • Practices will be held at the Murphey Candler Pool. (Pool membership is NOT REQUIRED to join the team).
  • Practices will be held Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
    • 8 and under: 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm
    • 9 and over: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
  • Most meets will be held on Tuesday evenings either at home or at various local pools in Brookhaven or Dunwoody. 

    The official meet schedule with locations will be available in April.  (Our last meet will be held on Monday, 6/26. The ASA Divisional meet will be either 6/28 or 6/29).

    • Warm-ups at 4:30 pm

  • All swimmers must be at least 5 years of age (ages 5-18) and be able to swim the length of the pool (25 yards) unassisted.

  • The $125 registration fee covers the cost of coaching, pool use for practices and meets, a team swim cap and team shirt.
  • The $37.50 ASA membership fee is the league fee which pays for the opportunity to compete with more teams, participate in the Championships held at Georgia Tech, and for the use of the Swimtopia website. *Please note this membership fee, required by the ASA will incur late fees (up to an additional $20) if paid after 4/16.


  • Registration will open Monday, 3/20/2023.
  • Please register early as space will be limited and ASA late fees will apply.
  • The ASA fees will increase on April 16. However, the main registration fee of $125 will remain the same.
