Brett Findley founded the Franklin Regional Swim Team in the fall of 2007. The club originated from a need in the Franklin area for a high level of competitive swimming. At the time, FRST was the only coach owned swim team in south-central Indiana so the concept was quite new. Brett wanted to create a team that was truly athlete centered, coach driven, and parent supported.
With this area never having fostered a USA Swimming Club, Brett had a steep hill to climb to prove that his team could be successful. Within just a couple years, Brett's club had moved it's way up the Indiana Swimming rankins, while also producing a couple state champion swimmers. Coach Findley, after many successful seasons and building a great staff, moved on to his next life adventure as a principal in the Columbus, IN area.
In April of 2012, Zach DeWitt was named Owner / Head Coach of the Franklin Regional Swim Team, after having spent three years as Head Coach of Club Mart Swimming, a swim club based out of Martinsville, IN.
By 2014, FRST had shot up the ranks and finished in the top-5 at Indiana Age Group State 4 times, highlighted by a couple 3rd place finishes in 2015.
In 2016, FRST nation had expanded in size from just over 60 athletes to its current size of 110 athletes. As first expanded, it maintained a heavy emphasis of a family first, athlete centered program.
Since 2012, FRST has remained the most successful age group and senior program within Indiana Swimming in the south-central Indiana area. FRST consistently has the most state, zone, and national level qualifiers in Johnson County. FRST has placed top-10 in both the Age Group State Championships and Senior State Championships each time in 2017.
