FAST had a great showing this past weekend. FAST hosted the Colorado Swimming Senior Meet and our volunteers did a fantastic job. Shout out to Sandi Rinker and Krista Nero for their efforts as meet directors. Special shout out to Lisa Worlund and Laura Grissom for organizing the volunteers for the meet. Also special shout out to anybody that stepped up to volunteer for a slot despite having their credits fulfilled. Hosting meets is important to the swimmers on FAST and the swimmers in Colorado for many reasons. Your efforts...

NCS 8 & Under Winter Spectacular Recap Saturday, February 15th, our youngest FAST swimmers were in Eaton for the 8 & Under Spectacular. With a Valentine’s Day theme, the goal of the meet was to swim fast and have fun. With over 30 best times, and our very own Lucas DeVries winning the high point award, I would say that we met our goals. All of the swimmers were super excited and cheered on their fellow teammates during almost every race! And lets not forget how each swimmer was able...

FAST/ CUDA/ Vortex Tri Meet Recap This past Saturday, February 15th, FAST hosted a Tri Meet against CUDA and Vortex. Each team came in ready to swim fast and earn some new State Qualifications. I’m not sure about the other guys, but Fort Collins did just that! We had great energy all around the deck- the team area there was filled with positive talk and support between teammates, swimmers were preparing properly before each race, executing race skills, and recovering well between events. With FAST athletes all doing the right...

The provider for the FAST website (TeamUnify) has a new platform to host swim teams with, and you will see a very different look and feel the next time you visit our site. The new platform makes it easier to keep things up to date, is more friendly for mobile devices, and hopefully is easier to use. There have been a couple of changes around website menu navigation, but a lot of the old content and structure is still around. If you have problems accessing anything, please let us know...
