Fishers Area Swimming Tigers Lessons

Welcome to the Community Health Network Learn-to-Swim Program Powered by FAST!

From the beginning FAST participant to the USA National team member, everyone has a special place with the FAST Tigers. To help all children be safe and enjoy the water, and to prepare new swimmers for the FAST competitive team, the Fishers Area Swimming Tigers offers 6 levels of swim lessons: the Community Health Network Learn-to-Swim Program Powered by FAST (Levels 1-4) and the Community Health Network Stroke School Powered by FAST (Levels 5-6). In preparation for the competitive team, FAST also offers a Pre-Team Program.

The Community Health Network Learn-to-Swim Program Powered by FAST (Levels 1-4), designed by the Starfish Aquatics Institute, is streamlined, innovative, and learner-focused.  The curriculum uses an "ages and stages" format with specific benchmarks that swimmers will achieve before moving to the next level.

Before your swimmer's first lesson, please be sure to review our Parent Information.
