VOLUNTEERS – We will need all families to volunteer for a least one shift during the summer ,when we host a meet (timer, runner, concessions, volunteer table, etc).

4. Not going to meets – about 30% of our swimmers do not attend meets. This is okay, if your swimmers are “not” going to swim meets, it is your summer, your money and your kid. However, please put it down on this page so we will know who is not doing meets (see below)

5. Practice Times – at the FISD Natatorium.

Mornings – 10:00 AM or 11:00 AM Evenings – 5:30 PM or 6:30 PM

for each practice time, we start out with ages and then move kids around by ability.

We began practice on Tuesday, May 28. Whatever practice time you pick, will be your practice time for the summer. We can not switch times during the season, all lanes will be full for all the practice times. We assume everyone has signed up for a practice time. If not, please do so ASAP at:


1. Does my kid have to be at every practice? No, they will not be in trouble if they miss practices.

2. What is the FASST philosophy? As far as swimming – we try and work on proper stroke technique, we do not swim a lot of yardage and we like to have fun. As far as life – It is your kid, your summer and your money. You only live once, and family time, vacation time, etc are very important. The more they practice, the better they will get. All kids/adults need to learn to swim, it is a lifelong sport. Not saying hey have to swim high school or college, but if they are at a lake, a neighborhood pool, etc. It is important to know how to swim.

3. Should my swimmer only do swimming as a sport? We believe that young kids ought to try many sports and activities, as they get older they can narrow it down to the ones they like. Too many kids are one sport specialist only, the “burn out rate” is very high. College coaches like kids who have participated in several sports (help prevent injuries and works different muscles).

4. What is my job as a parent of any sport? To support and love your kid, no matter what. Get them to practice on time, volunteer at meets, be a positive role model, don’t put down other kids, parents or coaches.

5. What should I “not do” as a parent? Do not belittle them based on performance or compare them to other kids. Do “not” yell at them during practice or meets, or the car ride home. Do “not” talk bad about other kids, families or coaches.

6. Has any FASST swimmers made it to college to swim? Yes, we have had more than 100 FASST swimmers swim in college (University of Texas, Alabama, Texas A&M, Army, Air Force, LSU, Duke, Boston College, Henderson State, etc). We have also had (2) swimmers make it to the Olympic Trials.

7. Is FASST that good that you are a summer team, and that many kids swam in college? No, most of the kids began with FASST and after age 12, 13 or 14 they went to swim club swimming. However, we have had a few that only swam FASST and swam in college.

8. Should I put my swimmers name on their equipment? Absolutely, we need their names on fins and kick boards, we have equipment left at the pool after each practice. We don’t need for parents to have to purchase equipment over and over, it gets expensive.

9. No parents are allowed on deck during practice – if you have younger children, you can go down and help them get on fins, goggles, etc. But when practice time begins, all parents need to be in the stands.

10. Do you offer “private lessons”? some of our coaches will do “private lessons” during the summer, We will send out information in a week or so.

11. What programs does FASST offer? we offer (3) programs. (1) Monthly stroke clinics during the school year (September thru May) – 2 nights a week; (2) Summer swim team (end of May thru July) and (3) private lesson during the summer.

If you have any questions, please contact Coach Trent at 214-335-8081. We are here for the kids, they are our NUMBER ONE priority.

FASST Times 5/24/22

FASST Times 5/24/22 – (7) items. – this will be put on our news page at

1. FASST Practice begin on Tuesday, May 31 at the Bruce Eubanks FISD Natatorium, please have the kids in their suit and ready 10 minutes before their practice time.

2. For those who need it, we will have suit and equipment pick up on Tuesday morning from 8:30-10 AM and again in the evening from 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM n the classroom at the FISD Natatorium. For all the morning practices please pick up in the morning (8:30-10 AM), for the evening practices please pick-up in the evening (6;30-7:30 PM).

3. We are not allowing parents at practice on Tuesday and Wednesday of the 1st week. We have done this the past few years and it is easier on our coaches and swimmers. This has worked best for our swimmers, as we evaluate/assess swimmers and put them with the correct groups. We always start out with age, then move a few kids up and down, based on ability. They will be safe as we will have (8) coaches and the FISD has lifeguards.

We will do our 25 yard test during practice time for those who need the test, as most of you know, we did our registration 2 months later this year, because we did not have a pool. When we did our 2022 team registration, we did not have a pool to do a test, we have done this before.

When we do allow parents back on Thursday, parents will be in the stands, at no time during any practice will parents be allowed on the pool deck, (this is coaches and swimmers only).

4. Many kids on our team do not do swim meets, in fact, about 30% of our swimmers each year do not compete at swim meets. If this is the case, we need to know before this Friday, who is not doing swim meets for 2022, please go to this page and put each swimmers name and age who will not compete at swim meets this year:

5. Our swim meet schedule is on our website at, then go to swim meet schedule. Our 1st swim meet is in Carrolton, On Saturday, June 4. It is an outdoor pool and 25 meters.

6. CARROLTON Swim meet – we will send out an invite to all FASST swimmers tonight or tomorrow with meet information, TAAF is charging $3.00 per event, new for all TAAF teams. We will have parents pay for their swimmers entries on Wednesday and Thursday in the front lobby at the FISD Natatorium. ThIs is new to us and to all the teams, not sure if when you register, if it will take your money online. If not, we will have to take it in the front lobby (cash or check only). The entry deadline will be Tuesday, May 31 at 9:00 PM (no late entries). Again, I will send out meet information later tonight or tomorrow morning (see notes below)

a – please make sure you sign-up before the deadline, they will not take any entries after 9:00 PM on Tuesday, May 31. we hear things like (thought the spouse did this, ooops I forgot until it was 9:03 PM),

b – this only take 2 minutes to do, don’t wait until the last minute.

c – it is $3.00 per event, they are not doing relays, so you can sign up for 3 total individual events.

d – you will not get a refund for missing events, FASST pays them before the meet begins with (1) check for the whole team meet entries

e – if you are new to swimming, this might be a meet to not go to, just don’t want them to go and it be a bad experience. If you do go, maybe pick free and back. We will host a meet at Frisco the next week on June 11

f – it is outdoor pool and water could be a little cold

g – you must wear FASST swim suit at all meets, you do not have to wear a swim cap, but if you do it must be a FASST swim cap.

h – if you have any questions, please call Coach Trent at 214-335-8081

7. All circuit swim meets will have a deadline of Tuesday at 9:00 PM, the same week of that swim meet, see on our website under “Deadlines for signing up for meets”. The only one that might be different, will be the Friday meet on June 17 at Denison, we do not know of yet, if it will be be a Monday or Tuesday, but we will let you know.

Coach Trent 214-335-8081 – call if you need me on anything. We are here for your kids.
