Please join us for the 2021 FAST Swim-a-Thon!

FAST is so grateful to all of the families who stuck with us through this long year of uncertainties and changes. Your support has helped FAST remain, not only open for business, but thriving as a team and allowed us to continue to offer swim opportunities for swimmers of all levels.

Why then do we need a Swim-a-Thon now? Like many organizations, FAST has been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. FAST lost the ability to host 4 large swim meets within the past 12 months that would normally generate up to $60,000 of revenue for the team. With Covid-19 facility restrictions at Lindbergh and Pattonville, FAST has incurred more expensive pool rental rates than ever before. In order to keep swimming at FAST as affordable as possible for FAST families, those costs were not fully passed along to families. Our organization has had to withdraw a significant amount from our savings to stay afloat.

Looking ahead to the summer, FAST plans to rent pool time at outdoor long course pools. This pool time has always been more expensive than our indoor pool rental fees and comes at a premium. In order to make sure this space can be paid for without further draining the savings that FAST has built over the last 18 years, we need to fundraise.

FAST is also very passionate about a cause near and dear to our hearts. The John Carter Traube Memorial Scholarship offers a scholarship every year to a deserving Ozark swimmer in memory of FAST’s own John Traube. John was not only a FAST parent. His daughter Emily currently swims in our National group. John was a FAST Board of Directors President, a FAST meet referee, and a volunteer at the LSC level as well. This scholarship is now in its 4th year and is typically supported by funds generated at the John Traube Memorial Swim Meet. Without the 2020 JTM meet, no funds were distributed to the scholarship fund and with 4 swimmers now receiving $1000 each from the fund, the fund could use our help. A portion of the proceeds from the 2021 FAST Swim-a-thon will benefit the JCT Memorial Scholarship.

What is a Swim-a-Thon?

Swim-a-Thon is a USA Swimming Foundation approved fundraiser used by swim teams all over the United States to raise money for their respective club. To raise money for Swim-a-Thon, swimmers receive pledges and donations from family members, friends, neighbors, and local businesses.

Our goal is to raise money from friends and family. With our athletes fundraising participation and your financial support, we will be able to provide critical support to our team. Your support of our Swim-a-Thon is very much appreciated!
