SwimTopia Quick-Start Guide

Swim team happiness in just a few easy steps!

Welcome to SwimTopia! Use this checklist to get started with your new swim team management system. Follow the links below each item for step-by-step instructions.

It’s tempting to just dive in and start adding meets to your schedule before step 1. To save yourself work, we highly recommend you do your best to have us import your team history first. Having that history in place makes understanding how all the parts of SwimTopia fit together much easier.

Export your roster and meet history (important)

If you use Team Manager, we can import your meet results and team roster. This will provide you with past Meets (including all the events that make up a meet) that you can copy to make your new season’s schedule. It has the side-benefit of importing the parents’ and kids’ information as well.

Note: If you don’t use Team Manager, the best way to get parent and athlete information is through Registration.
