Regional/State forms due Thursday, June 27

Posted by Trent Emmons at Jun 16, 2019 11:01AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

“Regional/State forms” are due by Thursday, June 27. Put forms in the Regional/State folder at the pool.

Attached file: 2019_Regional_State_Form.pdf

HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all of our FASST Dad’s.

Is your swimmer is going to “Regionals and/or State”. To make it to State (ages 14 and under), you must go to “Regionals” and finish in the top 4 or 5 in your event, we will know the exact number of qualfiers who make it to state later on. All swimmers 15 and older, automatically qualify for the state meet.

DO NOT CHECK STATE if you are not 100% sure you can make it to The Summer Games of Texas in College Station, TX. Many kids qualify for STATE on relays. We can’t change relays, once we turn them in. So if you say you can go to STATE, you must go, otherwise the other 3 kids on that relay, would then not be able to go. This causes “major heart aches” and is not fair to the other kids. We have about 40 room nights reserved for FASST families, we give this information out at regionals.

The “Regional/State form must signed by a parent and turned back into the FASST file folder labeled “Regional/State” forms on or before Thursday, June 27, if we do not receive the form, we will assume your child can’t make it to any of the regional or the state meet. DO NOT PUT THE FORM IN YOUR PERSONAL FOLDER, WE DO NOT HAVE THE TIME TO SEARCH 500 FOLDERS EVERYDAY!

Coaches will decide who will swim individual events and relays for the regional and state meet.

  1. of events at “Regionals/State” – Ages 8 and under can do (3) total events. Ages 9-10 can do (4) total events. Ages 11-14 can do (4) individual events and up to (2) relays. The 15-17 age can do 4 events, plus the (3 mixed relays), ages 18 and older can do unlimited events.

Age 6 and Under, most of you can qualify for State on a 6 and under relay, most teams don’t have enough 6 and unders for a relay. For all agee 14 and under, lots of our kids qualify on relays.

Register for "School Practice Sessions"

Posted by Trent Emmons at May 4, 2019 6:03AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Registration is now open for the FASST “School” Practice Session – (May 20 – May 30), evenings only, for 2 weeks. Please register at the FASST team website at www.swimfasst.com, you will see a BIG RED BUTTON that says “REGISTER NOW

How about the 2019 “Summer” Practice Schedule – we will send out information on the “summer” practice schedule in 2 weeks.

Kids can either practice on a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday, but not both. If it doesn’t matter what nights you choose, then please choose Tuesday/Thursday, because it will have less kids. Many kids do not start practice until school is out (the Summer Practice season), if you aren’t going to practice during the school practice session, please do not sign up for it.

6:45 – 7:20 PM (ages 8 and under)
7:20 – 8:00 PM (ages 9 – 11)
8:00 – 8:45 PM (ages 11 and older) *

So if you are age 11 you have 2 choices.

FAQ’s:

1. Can we do Mon/Thur or Tue/Wed practices? No, either Mon/Wed or Tue/Thur for these 2 weeks.

2. How about the summer practice schedule (when school is out), when will we know about that? In 2 weeks, I will send out information on the summer practice schedule. For the summer practice schedule (begins Monday, June 2nd), we have 3 morning practices (8, 9, and 10) and 2 evening practices (6:45, 7:45), Please wait till then before asking for different practice times.

3. I have one kid in the 1st practice and another one in the 2nd practice for May 20 – May 30, can I put them together? Its possible, we normally don’t do this until the summer practices., So lets wait intill a few days before to ask Coach Trent if it is possible. The summer practices, beginning June 2nd, we usually have “no problems”.

4. What if our child can’t make any of the school practices. No big deal, it is the last 2 weeks of school, many of our kids will not start practice until the 2019 school year is over. Also, 15 of the other 17 teams in our region, do not start until schools gets out.
