FAST Fees
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.
 
Initial Fees Due during FAST Registration
  • $75.00 FAST team registration fee for each new swimmer.
    • Please note, there is a $75.00 reinstatement fee for returning swimmers.
  • $78.00 USA Swimming Registration Fee (USA Swimming is our governing organization).
  • First month’s training fees
  • A credit card or bank information ACH on file is required.
 
In addition to monthly training fees, FAST accounts are also billed meet entry fees.  All fees are due on the first of month and will automatically be billed to the credit card on file.  The FAST Treasurer reserves the right to suspend any swimmer for non-payment of fees.

FAST requires Volunteer Service or payment of an opt-out fee.
