FAST Swim Lessons


All lessons will be held on Sunday mornings beginning at 10am at Pattonvile High School during the school year. Classes are 30 minutes and more classes may be added as class times fill.

FAST lessons provide an intimate way for your child to learn how to love activity in the water. Instruction is provided based on the needs and goals of the individual swimmer. The range is wide, from learning to blow bubbles to preparation for joining FAST's swim team, these lessons will ready your swimmer for a sport they can participate in their entire life.​

Our lesson program covers not only basic water safety and proficiency in the water, but also teaches the four competitive strokes: butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle. It is the perfect lesson program for anyone who wants to be safe around the water and/or has the desire to swim competitively in the future. Lessons are for swimmers Kindergarten age and older and have an average class size of one instructor per four swimmers. For any questions please email FAST's Executive Director [email protected], or call (314) 852-5216 to speak with Angie Dorsey.

FAST offers swim lessons on a monthly tuition-based program. There will be an average of four classes per month. Students may enter the program at any time during the year and can advance within the program at their own pace. The current month’s tuition will be pro-rated if necessary based on your start date.
