Team Philosophy

Nurturing and developing swimmers to achieve their full potential, by encouraging sportsmanship, a positive competitive nature, self esteem and confidence which are all keys to the doors of lifelong success

 

Nobody teaches like the FAST USA coaching staff. We have over thirty years of experience, teaching & training swimmers in all areas of swimming. We have established innovative training so that swimmers feel development and improvement after every workout.

Each swimmer will be able to have a personal relationship with each coach. Our goal is for every member of our club to achieve their personal best. Each swimmer will have a chart that is analyzed during workouts. Every practice will be designed so that each swimmer is at their best learning technique and speed development. Their best technique will represent the total enhance training and style of national competitive swimmers. Coaches constantly walk, talk and demonstrate professionalism, at all times.

The goal of the FAST USA coaching staff is to teach swimming Fishlike and get each swimmer to think about their strokes at all times. FAST USA swimmers train to move through the water as sleek vessels sliding through the smallest "hole" in the water. We move faster by rolling the long and slippery vessel back and forth faster. Creativity is our specialty. Through creativity, the coaches will teach every member that swim practices are important. At practices each swimmer's characteristics will show individual improvements. Excellence is our theme. In stroke-development, every swimmer must have excellent swim strokes. Therefore, every team member is an excellent swimmer. The importance of practices is if you participate, you will learn.

The purpose of (FAST USA) swim team practices is to pin point weaknesses and strengths of each swimmer. This method of training conditions each swimmer to make perfectly correct stroke changes. At FAST USA, winners make it happen. The coaches train to prevent poor habits. Dry-land training is a valuable and necessary supplement to our most comprehensive aquatic training program. A carefully planned dry-land routine includes: stretching and resistive, power building exercises. That will have a direct and positive effect on swimming performances. Our dry-land program incorporates the preventive measures essential to reduction and elimination of pain and injury to highly stressed muscles and joints. Some swimmers need more specific stretching to meet their individual needs. Running and calisthenics provide and excellent foundation of general body strength and fitness. Comprehensive stretching is mandatory for all swimmers.
