Swim Meet Schedules, Swim Meet Registrations and Practice Schedules are maintained and updated by Andrew Sellers aj2ud@yahoo.com

Practice for all groups begins April 15th
New swimmer evaluations will be held on TBA at the UF swimming pool.  

Why Swim Long Course?
Long course will be viewed by a national television audience this year during the Olympics in London, yet a lot of parents are hesitant to sign their young swimmers up for it.  Long course season is highly recommended for swimmers who wish to shine during short course and high school season.  I understand that it is the summer and their is a lot going on but we do not enforce an attendance policy, typically have a higher coach to swimmer ratio and, if your young swimmer has Olympic aspirations, the only way to qualify for the Olympics is in long course.  We keep our team philosophy of technique but we will have a heavier emphasis on training for the older and more advanced swimmers.  Plus your swimmer is outside for over an hour a day!

If four or less swimmers attend a meet, a FAST coach may not attend the meet.  The coaching staff will work with you to ensure your swimmers are taken care of on deck.  If your family has multiple swimmers going to several different meets on a given weekend and would like to just go to one meet please contact Head Coach Andrew Sellers, each situation will be handled on a case by case basis.


What is JO?

J.O. is Junior Olympic.  Also referred to as "State Time".   If a meet states "Faster than JO", that means you must have met the state time in any particular event prior to entering that event in the meet.
"Slower than J.O." means if you have met your state time in any particular event, you cannot swim that event at that meet.  If you have not met your state time, you can swim any event.
Click here for a list of "Junior Olympic" times. 
Short Course is Winter/Fall Season
Long Course is Spring/Summer Season

Developmental Meets - These meets are beginning level of meets and the best place to learn what competitive swimming is all about. Swimmers will try new events at these meets. NT's (No Times) are allowed at these meet. NT's mean that a swimmer has not achieved a legal time in an event. Developmental level meets are usually 1 day meets and are a Timed Finals format.

Invitationals - This is the next level of swim meet. These meets are usually require that a swimmer have a time in an event or have met a qualifying time for that event and/or time. These meets can be from 2-4 days long, but you can sign up your swimmer for one day, two days or as many as you want to swim.  The Invitationals can be broken down into different types of meets based on how fast a swimmer is. 

Psych Sheet - A psych sheet is a listing of swimmers participating in the meet, by event, age and best time.
