The Fullerton Aquatics Sports Team (FAST) has been developing champions and providing quality instruction to swimmers of all ages since 1964. Today FAST offers a wide variety of aquatics programs to serve anyone with a passion for swimming. Come swim with us!
For beginners, the FAST Swim School provides year-round lessons for children and adults. Children under the age of 4 begin in Parent & Tot classes which focus on water safety and comfort. Children ages 4 and over can enroll in private, semi-private, or small group lessons all of which have specific goals in accordance with a ten-step progression.
We are pleased to offer lessons at two locations in Fullerton: the Janet Evans Swim Complex (outdoors) and the Fullerton Community Center (indoors). All of our instructors are certified through SwimAmerica, the official lessons program of USA Swimming.
The FAST Pre-Competitive program is an instructional program that develops basic competitive swimming skills. Classes are designed for swimmers looking to refine their strokes and improve endurance. Instruction focuses on the fundamentals of the sport, including all four strokes (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Freestyle), starts and turns.
Swimmers can progress from Beginner classes (twice per week for 45 minutes) to Intermediate and Advanced classes (three times per week for 1 hour). Pre-Comp classes are available at three Fullerton locations (the Janet Evans Swim Complex, the Fullerton Community Center, and Fullerton College), as well as Yorba Linda High School in Yorba Linda.
The FAST Swim Team is a year-round competitive USA Swimming team for boys and girls ages 5 and over. Our program is designed to develop swimmers at every stage of their swimming career. Swimmers practice regularly at four sites in designated groups based upon age and ability. Practices are led by professional coaches certified by USA Swimming and the American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA).
Our team philosophy is to pursue excellence at every level of the sport. FAST athletes achieve success locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. At the elite level, FAST has trained multiple Olympians, including the legendary Olympic Champion Janet Evans and, most recently, 2012 Olympic Gold Medalists Tyler Clary and Matt McLean.
The FAST Masters Team provides coach-led workouts for adult swimmers. A wide range of ability levels participate in daily practices year-round to improve their endurance, stamina, and overall fitness level. Our professional coaching staff is readily available to provide stroke improvement tips and goal-setting advice. Swimmers must be able to complete 100-yards of Freestyle with side breathing in order to register. The Masters program is available at the Janet Evans Swim Complex in Fullerton and Yorba Linda High School in Yorba Linda.
In partnership with the City of Fullerton, FAST operates the Janet Evans Swim Complex (JESC) in Independence Park and the indoor pool at the Fullerton Community Center (FCC). Daily lap and open swim are available at both locations. Water aerobics and Senior aquatics programs are available at FCC.
We also offer lifeguard certification courses throughout the year for teenagers and adults interested in obtaining Red Cross certifications for Lifeguarding and First Aid. Our Swim School directors provide SwimAmerica training classes for people interested in becoming swim instructors.
The Janet Evans Swim Team provides a competitive experience for boys and girls in the summer months. Swimmers practice twice per week for one hour under the guidance of an excellent coaching staff. The primary objective is FUN! Swimmers improve their strokes and build their endurance in preparation for three intrasquad competitions throughout the summer. The JEST program will expand to Fullerton College in Summer 2014.
