Welcome to Coeur d' Alene Area Swim Team (CAST) and USA Swimming!
Welcome 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 swim two lengths of two different strokes in a 25 yard pool unassisted
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 the CAST. Every swimmer on the team is a success and should be made to feel that way.
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.
