The State GRPA meet in Cumming at the end of July is a great chance for summer league swimmers to experience a year-round type meet.  The RAYS will compete against City and County teams from throughout the state.


At the state GRPA meet in July, all swimmers compete in the morning session, and the top eight qualifiers at each individual event and relay come back for evening finals to determine State GRPA champions. All GRPA finalists receive a medal and participate in a medal ceremony for their event.
