2021-22 Swim & Dive Schedule Announced

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.  –  The Florida State swimming and diving swimming teams will host five meets during the 2021-22 season, as the schedule was released on Thursday.

The dual meet schedule contains contests with four SEC teams, which is the most for the Noles in a single season since 2011-12.  ACC foes Georgia Tech and Miami will also face FSU head-to-head. Among the 11 teams on the slate, nine scored points at the 2021 NCAA Championships, with six finishing in the top 25.

“We’re excited to get another season started,” FSU head coach Neal Studd said. “This is one of the most challenging schedules we’ve put together, but this will give us the opportunity to test ourselves against some of the best in the nation,”

“We have a very good team this year,” Studd added. “We want to be prepared and at our best for championship season and this schedule will help us do that.”

The Seminoles will officially open the season with five-straight weekends of competition, starting with the FIU TYR Fall Classic on the road in Miami from Oct. 8-9.  In addition to FSU and the host Florida International, Pitt, FAU, Missouri State and TCU will all be competing.

FSU will return to host Auburn (Oct.15) before embarking on its first of five trips to Atlanta on Oct. 23 to face Georgia Tech.

West Florida, North Florida and Florida Southern will head to Tallahassee on Oct. 30 for a quad meet, before the Noles host Florida on Nov. 5.

The first portion of the schedule will conclude at the Georgia Tech Invitational.

Following December training, FSU will host Texas A&M on Jan. 6. The Seminoles last welcomed both quads in January of 1994, however the women’s also welcomed the Aggies in a tri-meet in February of 2009 along with Auburn.

FSU will travel to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for a dual against LSU on Jan. 15 and the ladies will head to face Miami in Coral Gables on Jan. 21.

The Seminoles will wrap up the regular season by hosting Tampa on Jan. 28 for senior day.

FSU will send a group to compete at the Auburn First Chance Invite from Feb. 3-5 before both teams compete together at the ACC Championships in Atlanta at the McAuley Aquatic Center; the site of the 1996 Olympic Games, from Feb. 15-19.

The divers will look to punch their tickets to the NCAA Championships at the NCAA Zone B Diving Championship from March 7-9 in Atlanta.

Qualified swimmers and divers will return to Atlanta to compete at the NCAA Championships. The women will compete from March 16-19 and the men will follow March 23-26.

Prior to the start of the season, the Seminoles will square off in the Garnet vs. Gold exhibition on Sept. 24 at 2 p.m. The meet will also highlight an alumni weekend.

Fans are expected to be allowed to attend all meets at the Morcom Aquatics Center in 2021-22. Admission is free.
