Get F.A.S.T. with the Y!

 
F.A.S.T. (Fundamentals Around Swim Team) is a recreational swim league that promotes youth development through fun competition and sportsmanship!

We believe you must focus on more than just the physical aspect of training to develop strong athletes. Our swim team program is designed to emphasize technique and endurance along with teaching fundamentals around swim team in a non-sanctioned, non-competitive environment. 

Our goal is to provide youth with an encouraging environment to improve their swimming skills, build self-confidence and achieve success!
