Welcome to Coeur d' Alene Area Swim Team (CAST) and USA
to our Swim Team website. You don’t have to be a great
swimmer to get started. Our entry level program is
specifically designed for swimmers who enjoy the water and can
comfortably swim two lengths of freestyle and
backstroke in a 25 yard pool.
Our emphasis is on establishing proper
stroke technique in a fun and challenging environment. If you
love to swim and are ready to take the next step up from a lesson
program, CAST is the way to go.
Our goal is to promote competitive swimming in
Coeur d' Alene and the surrounding area. Further goals are to
teach cooperation, leadership, self-control, decision-making, and
good sportsmanship. CAST is a place for all levels of
swimmers, from young novice swimmers to National level swimmers .
While winning is important, it is not the sole purpose of CAST.
Every swimmer on the team is a success and should be made to feel
The sport of swimming has many benefits,
including the people you and your child will meet. The camaraderie
among swimmers is unique, and many swimmers and their parents
become lifelong friends. Swimming as a competitive sport is second
to none in fostering the development of many valuable life skills.
These include work ethic, determination, goal setting, time
management, self-improvement, risk taking, teamwork, sportsmanship
and self-discipline. Your child will reap the benefits of swimming
long after their competitive participation ends.
