Registration 2021-2022

We are anticipating that our swimming groups will be at full capacity due to COVID restrictions (we already have wait lists started for most of our groups). Please do not delay in registering. We will open any available spots for new FAST swimmers on Aug 30. If you are not registered before then, we may not be able to accommodate your swimmer.

Respect in Sport for Parents
  • Certification must be completed before Sept 6, 2021
  • This is a 60 min online course and will cost you $12/parent certification (Transferable from other sports if you have already completed it).

Please choose Swimming Canada as your affiliated club. Click here to register
  • RIS certification must be current (not expired) as of Sept 6, 2021
  • Swimming Canada has a 5-year recertification requirement. Most of families have already completed this requirement last year and will not have to renew it until your 5thyear is up
  • Log into your RIS account to see if your certification has expired (certification date must be before Sept 6, 2016) 
  • If you do not have this certification or it has expired, FAST requires at least one parent/guardian for each swimmer family to complete the Respect in Sport for Parents online course – before your swimmer will be permitted to participate in FAST activities (see link below)
  • You can “Transfer” your RIS Certification if you have already completed it through another sports organization. Log into your RIS Account and follow options to transfer a copy to FAST

Fees

 

  • Aqua 1 – one pair of speedo vanquisher goggles will be included in your registration fee. We are doing this for the Aqua 1 group because many swimmers who are new to competitive swimming are not sure about appropriate goggles. We have selected the Speedo Vanquisher brand/style (very popular) and have negotiated lower cost due to bulk ordering.
  • We will also be keeping the speedo vanquisher goggles on hand for any swimmer to purchase. Many times, it is a last-minute emergency when a swimmer needs a pair of goggles and having them on hand will ensure they are able to get a replacement in a timely fashion.

  3. Code of Conduct
  4. Code of Conduct for Swimmers (will be completed with coach early in the season)

Fundraising
Fundraising is especially important this season as we are expecting a tough year financially. Rather than increase registration fees significantly, we will be putting more emphasis on fundraising and mandatory fundraising. We have 2 mandatory fundraisers (Chocolate bars and Swim a thon) and 4-6 voluntary fundraisers. Click here for more details on the Fundraising plan.
Volunteering
FAST families who have a swimmer in Aqua 2, Aqua 3, Aqua 4, APJ or APS are required to volunteer a minimum amount of hours each swim season. Click here for more information about # hours required/group and the Family Participation Plan (FPP).
