FAST Tiger Pre-Team is a group intended for swimmers age 6-14 who are able to swim at least 50 yards of freestyle, 50 yards of backstroke and are able to kick 50 yards of any stroke.  Many swimmers use Pre-Team as a transition step in between swim lessons and the competitive team while some swimmers choose to remain in the Pre-Team group.

Practices are coached by FAST Tiger coaches! Coaches Cat Sehr, Paula Hardin and our newest Coach Daniel Pache.
