Fort Worth Area Swim Team is a private, non-profit swim team.  We are not associated with Fort Worth ISD.  We merely rent their pool facility.  Through external fundraising, member volunteering, and making sure our money is spent for the right things (quality coaching staff, Wilkerson-Greines pool rent, team equipment, etc), the Fort Worth Area Swim Team has dues that are competitive with other USA Swimming teams of similar quality.
