2021-2022 FAST Prep


Focusing on Fun And Stroke Technique, our FAST Prep group is a session-based group offering 4 sessions during the 2021-2022 school year.  The sessions average 9 weeks in duration with typically 2 practice sessions offered per week.  The session dates and fees are listed below.


This is our entry-level group and will introduce participants to their first competitive swimming experience.  This session-based program will be divided into 10 and under and 11 and over groups.  Swimmers must be able to complete 25 yards of both freestyle and backstroke in good form as well as have a basic understanding of breaststroke and butterfly. Swimmers interested in FAST Prep will need an evaluation with a member of the FAST coaching staff before enrolling in this group. Click here to sign up for an evaluation.


FAST Prep swimmers will be registered with USA Swimming and will be offered the option to compete in USA Swimming meets that FAST coaches recommend for this group. 


The annual team registration fee does not apply to swimmers in the FAST Prep group.  When a swimmer advances to one of FAST’s year-round training groups, the annual training fee will be charged to the account, if it was not already charged for sibling swimmers on the account for the 2021-2022 season.


FAST apparel is required of FAST Prep swimmers who plan to compete in meets.  Swimmers who do not plan to compete at meets may still purchase FAST apparel during registration if they wish.


Payment for FAST Prep is due at the time of registration for each session.
