Swim School

The FAST Swim School offers year-round lessons for infants, children, and adults.  The first priority of all classes is safety and, from this foundation, students learn mastery of all important swimming skills in an eight-step progression.  Each of the eight levels has specific goals around which instructors build their classes.

Children ages four and over are placed in small group classes.  Private and Semi-Private lessons are also available.  Lessons are 30-minutes in duration.  Classes are taught year-round at our indoor pool at the Fullerton Community Center (heated to 84 degrees) and seasonally at our outdoor pool at the Janet Evans Swim Complex at Independence Park in Fullerton (heated to 88 degrees).

Children under 4 are encouraged to begin in our Parent & Tot classes or Preschool lessons to develop comfort in the water.  More information can be found above in the Infant & Toddler Classes tab.  Our instructors are also highly qualified to work with adults, from those who fear the water to those looking to improve their swimming form or learn a new stroke.  More information can be found above in the Adult Lessons tab.




FAST Families,

In the interest of preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus, FAST and the
City of Fullerton will be closing the Fullerton Community Center pool to the
public until further notice.

During the closure, we will continue working with city officials and stay
abreast of local, state, and national news to guide decisions regarding
programming and facility access.

For the time being, the start of our spring lessons session will be delayed
and will TENTATIVELY begin the week of April 6, 2020. You will be notified
of any further date changes. All families will receive credit for classes
missed during the closure.

Everything in the community is in flux at a rapid rate. Thanks again for
your patience. We hope to welcome you back to the pool soon. In the
meantime, please prioritize your safety and health.

Things to Remember About Registration:

  • Forms will only be accepted with full payment in cash, credit card, or check.

  • For lessons (excluding Pre-School, Parent and Tot, and Pre-Comp), all forms must have three different day and time choices. This gives us room to find an available class that best matches your child's age and ability level

  • Allow up to a week for your class time confirmation via email or phone call.

  • Sibling registration forms are processed together, so that they may not have the same instructor, but will have the same class time.
