Greater Knoxville Area Interclub Swimming Association


The GKAISA organization is a summer swim league that encourages children to participate regardless of their skill level.  It is the mission of GKAISA to provide an opportunity for swimmers 18 years old and younger, to develop a passion for the sport of swimming while gaining swimming skills and learning the principles of team work and sportsmanship.  GKAISA provides an organized framework in which coaches, competitors, parents and league officials can operate with courtesy, sportsmanship, and good will.

Please note that as part of each team's registration process, teams need to either 1) download the Parent/Athlete Forms for Concussion Awareness and for Sudden Cardia Arrest for each swimmer & parent to initial and sign.  The teams need to keep them.  OR 2) set up the forms as part of the online registration process for your team.  If you wish to do it online, please contact Rich Waldis at:
