Fort Myer Swim Team

Fort Myer Swim Team Eligibility


Due to our team affiliation with Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, our team has special eligibility requirements. All swim team families MUST purchase a separate Patton Hall swim membership. Being a member of FMST automatically makes you eligible to join Patton Hall which is typically restricted to military (active duty and retired), Department of Defense employees, and federal employees.  You must supply your Patton Hall pool membership number by the end of the first week of practice.  

  • Patton Hall application materials are available at the Five Star Catering Office located at 214 Jackson Ave., Fort Myer, VA.  

  • Priority for team membership is given to swimmers returning from the previous year.  Based on space availability, membership is then opened to active members of the military and new families on a first-come, first-served basis.  

Registration consists of the completion of the on-line registration form and submission of payment and completion of a waiver form. Payment and forms must be submitted before your swimmer can be officially registered and eligible to participate in practices or meets, including time trials.

ALL 12 and under swimmers new to FMST must attend a swim evaluation prior to the start of the season in order to participate on the team.  The evaluation will be held at a local indoor pool on a weekend day prior to the start of the season (date, time, location to be announced).  The evaluation requires the swimmer swim one length of the pool without stopping and unassisted (i.e., no noodle, grabbing the lane line or wall).  Any stroke is allowed.  The Coaches will evaluate each swimmer to determine his/her eligibility to participate on the team.  If a swimmer is unable to successfully complete the evaluation we will refund your registration fee.
