2020 FASST Summer Swim Team is cancelled

Posted by Trent Emmons at May 28, 2020 4:52AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

FASST team, first of all thank you for you patience the past few weeks, and during unprecedented times we are having in 2020 with COVID – 19.

As of information we found out last week and yesterday, we are sad to say we are canceling the 2020 summer swim season.

1. Last week, TAAF cancelled the 2020 State Games of Texas Swim meet.

2. This week, most of the swim teams in our region and around the state cancelled the 2020 season. TAAF teams mostly use city pools and school district pools, many aren’t opening until later in the summer, some are closed all summer.

3. We think the FISD pool will open back up in July. We hope to get back in the water then, either practice, or stroke clinics. Hopefully we will know next week.

As a result of the cancellation of the 2020 season, we will be issuing partial refunds. Partial refunds (70%) will be credited back to all swimmers.

Partial refunds were determined based on suits and shirts and a few other expenses we cannot get back. Suits and shirts are $75 and we are not allowed to take these back. Your patience is appreciated as we work to complete refunds for more than 600 swimmers (we are the largest TAAF swim team in the state). We will begin working on the issuance of refunds immediately; however, completion of this process could take up to June 10th at the latest. Refunds will be credited back to the original payment method during registration (credit card, debit card, etc.). If you have not received your swimmer’s refund by June 10th, please email us to verify your status.

We hope your families have stayed healthy and safe, and we look forward to seeing you back in the pool hopefully in July or when we begin stroke clinics (either August or September). l will keep everyone updated as soon as I know more (I promise).

Also, a HUGE THANKS to our FASST Board of Directors. They meet all year long to plan the summer swim team season. If you see them, give them a big THANK YOU. Meghan Frost, Kay Buchanan, Bob Bray, Brad Cummings, Ginny Lewis, Joel Bakian, Cathy May, Joan Cetera, Bob Bray, Jessika Gustin and Clint McReynolds.

Private lessons – some of our coaches are still doing private lesson, starting next week (see below). They do fill up very FASST. As coaches schedules have changed (some are trying to get other summer jobs, etc), we will update our website as we get days/times from them, so please take a look on our website www.swimfasst.com under “Private lessons”.

Charge for private lessons – is $25 for 30 minutes.

Coach Trent Emmons by appointment only, e-mail at fasstcoach@aol.com Pool Location 6207 Wilmington Drive (at my home), in Plantation Resort, near Curtsinger, Wester and CHS. Available Tue, Wed and Thur afternoon from 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM and 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM.

FASST Times 5/9/2020

Hello FASST Nation, I hope everyone is doing well, staying safe and keep social distancing and washing hands.

Lots of questions: Are we going to get to swim? We have no clue, but CDC says swimming is the 1st sport that will begin. When do we start? If we do, we are hoping June 1st or June 8th/15. All of this is still up in the air, during these times, but we want to be ready if we do. Yesterday, the Governor opened up swimming to Texas at 25% capacity, next phase if all goes well, will be 50%, then more as time goes on. My contacts with the City, Chamber of Commerce and FISD, thinks it is 50-50………..but who knows, things change day to day, and are out of our control. (keep your fingers crossed)

1. 1st of all, we are going to distribute suits/shirts and spirit wear for those who have not picked them up yet on Saturday, May 16 (see below).

2. Next week, we will have people register for practice time (an e-mail will explain how to go about it).

3. Stay safe, keep social distancing and washing hands

4. If you want to be a High School Volunteer this summer, please contact Bob Bray our Director for the high School Volunteers at bobbray@sbcglobal.net

Bob has forms he would like to send to you ASAP. Give him your name, age and contact information.

5. Thanks for all the phone calls, texts and e-mails…..and we know you are ready for your kid to get in the water and exercise. (keep your fingers crossed)

Suit/shirt and Spirit wear pick-up day – will be Saturday, May 16th at the FISD Natatorium parking lot (from 9:00 AM til 11:30 AM).
If you haven’t picked up suit/shirt or spirit wear – please do so on Saturday, May 16. Most people picked them up during our registration days in February.

For parent’s picking up, we are doing this by appointment only. Sign up before Thursday, May 14th at 10 PM. Please go online at this link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10Jfaj1Clh5fAYl-M8UIPr1AA_VvQ5GT_jcJarUBzAXE/edit#gid=947960045 and register for a time to pick-up (4 spots per 20 minutes, bring form filled out, you will not get out of the car, we bring suits and shirt to you same thing for “SPIRIT WEAR”. Everyone enter from North 1st street into the natatorium, park on left for suits and shirts. Park on right for Spirit Wear. Just pick a time and only 4 slots per 20 minutes, please show up at the beginning of your time slot, and leave a space in between your car and another car. We will all have on mask and gloves, it should all be very safe.

We will have special rules to abide by on pick-up day. No one getting out of cars, we will bring you stuff to you.
1. Everyone must fill out a form (See attached),
2. If you came to our registration day, we should have your forms, just give us your name.
3. If you haven’t tried on suits/shirts we will do our best guess (just keep the tags on if the size isn’t correct) and we can exchange them later.

Sizes for the forms and 1 form per family, put all kids names and gender on the one form per family (see below)
