FAST 'n Fit / Pre-Comp / Pre-Team

FAST 'n' Fit

The FAST 'n' Fit program is designed for swimmers whose main goals are to improve technique and fitness, but not necessarily to join a competitive swim team. FAST 'n' Fit is open to swimmers ages 6-15 years old who have successfully completed Level 7 in the FAST Swim School and who wish to remain healthy through swimming without the commitment of being on a competitive team. Under the guidance of an excellent coaching staff, students improve their technique, strength, and endurance in the pool.

Prerequisites

  • Successful completion of Level 7 in the FAST Swim School, which includes the following skills:
    • Breaststroke (or "frog") kick (do not need to be able to do arms)
    • Butterfly (or "dolphin") kick (do not need to be able to do arms)
    • Freestyle with side breathing
    • Backstroke
    • Forward somersault in the water
  • Swimmers from non-FAST programs must meet the above expectations and be approved by a FAST Pre-Comp or FAST 'n' Fit Coach.

Pre-Team

The FAST Pre-Team program is an instructional program that prepares swimmers for the FAST Swim Team.
