Tiger Cubs Parent Liaisons

We are fortunate to have 2 parents serving as parent liaisons to each of the Tiger Cubs training groups. These parents are here to answer your questions, help you navigate the world of swimming, and connect you to the FAST family. Please feel free to reach out as needed.

 


Tiger Cubs 1, 2, & 3 Required Equipment

We would like all our Tiger Cubs to have the required equipment (including goggles preferably with bungee strap, caps, and fins) ASAP.

We are now practicing with fins and it is extremely difficult to run practice when the everyone does not have them. Moreover, they are critical for developing strength and improving kicking technique and body position at this age.

In addition to the above list, please make sure your athletes come to practice each day with athletic shoes for dryland and a water bottle. If you have any questions, please let us know. Thank you!
