2020 FASST Summer Swim Team is cancelled

Posted by Trent Emmons on May 28 2020 at 04:52AM PDT

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 under “Private lessons”.

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