FAST Families, Long Course practice time is making a come back! Long Course is valuable to all of our swimmers, it gives FAST a chance to train in different ways, use different skills, and stay sharp Long Course year round- an opportunity not many teams in Colorado get.

Below are the Fridays we will use this schedule: 9/24- This Friday 10/29 11/26 12/17
