Hello FAST Families, We have a few things to go over here in this email. The first thing to go over is that route 6 will be closed from July 12-21. I believe that a detour will be in place to get around but it might be easier to take a different road if you can. I know I will be taking 15 to FUMA rather than going through route 6 during this timeframe. The next thing to go over is we have some championship meet info. You must have...

Hello Fast Families, I have a big schedule change as well as a couple of mid-season updates to go over so please read through this email carefully as it may affect you. We will no longer be holding the 7:15-8:15 pm practices starting this monday, that is the 28th of June. This means that the practices being held in the afternoon hours will be a 5:15-6:15 pm practice and a 6:15-7:15 pm practice. We also offer morning practices from 7-8 am and 8-9 am. You do not have to worry...

This tubing trip is one of my favorite summer time activities over the last 50 years of coaching! Hope will join us! Here are a couple of important reminders. Be there at 12:30 to sign in, register, and pay (they do accept credit cards). Be sure to bring your release form which attached in the sign up with other useful information or can be download directly from here.

Good Morning FAST Families We had an amazing week of practice. The swimmers are working hard and learning quickly. We also had a great first meet for our 11 & Olders. Special thanks to all the parents who helped make this meet happen. This is a reminder to all the 10 & Unders to please declare whether you are coming to the meet or not this week. It only takes a few seconds to say yes or no and that really helps our coaches. These are due by Sunday night...
