Thanks again to all of our outstanding swimmers and their families who helped make the 2018 Everyone Counts swim meet and the State Sendoff Party a huge success!  Congratulations to all the swimmers who participated in the swim meet this past weekend and to those who earned a trip to the YMCA State Championship this coming weekend!  It has been such an amazing season and each and everyone one of you contributed to our team’s success both in and out of the pool!  Thank you!

-Annual FCYST Banquet, April 15:  We will be holding our Annual FCYST Banquet on Sunday, April 15 at Liberty Hall.  There is a lot of information about this event on our team website.  We would like all FCYST swimmers and their families to attend this event as we will be celebrating the many successes we’ve all had this year.  You will need to commit to this event the same as you would a swim meet.  Please indicate how many will be coming in the notes section and then please print the Banquet Registration Form that is found HERE and also in the event description on our website.  Then mail or drop off that form with your payment by March 20th to the Swim Team Office. 



-2018 Spring/Summer Season Updates:
