FAST Training Groups - Excel, Elite, & National Tigers

In the Senior division, FAST athletes continue to learn and be taught progressively, but emphasis is placed on taking ownership of their individual goals and the path to achievement. SENIOR division swimmers compete at the local, state, regional, and national level. Competing at the highest level meet for which they are qualified is a priority. Swimmers will be introduced to collegiate opportunities, mentored through goal setting, and encouraged to be positive role models for the younger age group swimmers. Our Compete to Excel groups include Excel, Elite, and National.

Excel Tigers - The Excel Tigers are a year-round training group for high school-aged swimmers. These athletes continue to learn and be taught progressively, but emphasis is placed on taking ownership of their individual goals and the path to achievement. Training sessions are offered 7 times per week and athletes are expected to attend all training sessions.

Elite Tigers - The Elite Tigers are a year-round training group for high school-aged swimmers who have earned at least one 13 & Over State Cut. These athletes continue to learn and be taught progressively, but emphasis is placed on taking ownership of their individual goals and the path to achievement. Training sessions are offered 8 times per week and athletes are expected to attend all training sessions.

National - The National Tigers are a year-round training group for high school-aged swimmers who have earned at least one Winter Junior cut. These athletes continue to learn and be taught progressively, but emphasis is placed on taking ownership of their individual goals and the path to achievement. Training sessions are offered 9 times per week and athletes are expected to attend all training sessions. Each season, these athletes will have one major focal area to further develop their training base. These athletes, due to additional benefits received, will sign a commitment agreement to belong to this group.
