Frequently Asked Questions

Learn more about The Storm by visiting the official FSHFC Storm GKAISA website.

What is GKAISA?

GKAISA is an organization of 34 Knoxville area teams that compete with each other. It is divided up into 6 leagues according to size and ability of teams. GKAISA stands for Greater Knoxville Area Interclub Swim Association. We are in the lowest league (League 6). The championship meet at the end of the season is for all the teams in GKAISA. Over 2,000 swimmers compete in this meet, which is the fourth largest swim meet in the country!  It is a great opportunity for kids to compete in a first rate facility (Allan Jones Aquatic Center on UT campus) and to compete against some great area swimmers!

What are the age divisions?

The swim meets are divided into 10 divisions. Ages 8 and under; 9 – 10; 11 – 12; 13 – 14; and 15 and over.  Each age group is divided in boys and girls. Girls swim first in the age divisions, then boys swim.

Do you have to be a member of FSHFC to join the STORM swim team?

Yes. It is a GKAISA rule that all swimmers must belong to the pool, club or community.
