Assessment of Behavior and Physical Control:
Attention control - FAST considers what is in the best interest of all its swimmers as well as an individual. To ensure all swimmers have the opportunity of equal and quality coaching, a swimmer cannot consistently demand an unreasonable amount of the coaches’ attention/time and/or distract fellow swimmers from their coaching experience.
Emotional control - A swimmer cannot act in an aggressive manner and/or present a safety risk to themselves or their fellow swimmers.
Motor control – Every swimmer has their own ability level. Coaches strive to ensure every swimmer is meeting their potential, however, they must ensure the swimmer is not overwhelmed to perform above their current level of ability. Or inhibit other swimmers from their right to equal and quality training.
Processing Information – a swimmer must be able to keep up with the pace of the group, train at the level required, and have the ability to put the coach’s instructions into action independently.
Wait List:
Once the FAST registration reaches a pre-determined number, either for the whole team, or in any individual group, OR the Head Coach decides that the available pool space is not sufficient to accommodate any more swimmers, there will be a wait list started and no new registration accepted unless the Head Coach deems possible.
Athletes will be placed on the Waiting List in the order that they attempted to register with FAST, and swimmers will be invited to register with the club according to the length of time that they have been on the Waiting List . Siblings of current members will move directly to the top of the Waiting List on a first come, first served basis.
For club hosted meets and for meets held in the city, there is an expectation that parents will assist in officiating. Without officials, we cannot run meets. Take an opportunity to talk to the coach and board to get a better understanding of officiating expectations.
Parents/Guardians of our Competitive and Performance Stream swimmers are required to participate in the Family Participation Plan. Volunteering a minimum number of hours/season (depending on the group). If requirement is not met, the family will be charged a rate of $15/hour they have not volunteered. Please see the "Family Participation Plan" under the Parent Info Tab.
FAST holds a combination of mandatory and voluntary fundraisers throughout each season. For more information click here.
