Summer Swim Lessons
The FAST Frogs are excited to announce our Summer Swim Lesson program! Read below for information and links to register.
The FAST Frog Lesson Program is designed for entry-level swimmers who have little to no prior swimming experience. Swimmers must be four years old as of June 1 to be eligible for the Lessons program.
For the 2019 swim season, the registration priority for the Lesson Program is given to members of the Lake Forest, Forest Creek, and Forest Creek III Homeowners Associations (HOAs), and siblings of non-HOA FAST Frogs swimmers. However, swim lessons is open to non-HOA swimmers as well.
If an HOA resident swimmer makes adequate progress as determined by the coaching staff, they may be moved into the Tadpoles program and may even be made eligible to participate in FAST Frogs swim meets. Non-HOA swimmers are not eligible to be moved into the Tadpoles program.
Lessons will be 30-minute group sessions generally with a 3:1 swimmer-to-coach ratio to ensure swimmer safety and adequate instruction. There will be two Lessons courses, each of four weeks, the first running from June 3 through June 27, and the second running from July 1 through July 25. Lessons will generally run from Monday through Thursday, although there may be an adjustment during the 4th of July week.
Lessons will be held at 8:30 am, 9 am or 9:30 am. After a swimmer is registered, they will receive a Lesson Time Slot preference form via email to indicate which time session they prefer. Time slots will be assigned on a first come/first serve basis.
All Lessons are held at the FCIII pool at 500 Royal Burgess Dr.
Registration fees are $180 for each four week session. Evaluations are not required, and swimmers may be moved between coaches based on their progress during lessons.
The Forest Area Swim Team (FAST), with permission from the Forest Creek (FC), Lake Forest (LF) and Forest Creek III (FCIII) HOA’s, uses the HOA pools in the participating neighborhoods for swim practices. Residents must be in good standing with their home HOA to register with FAST.
Lessons participants are not counted as Returning Swimmers for 2020 season registration and will follow the registration priority documented in the FAST Frogs registration policy.
Registration for the June and July Lessons will be posted in May 2019 when staff has been confirmed. Note: this registration is for the Summer Lesson program only. Registration for the 2019 Competitive Swim Team cannot be found on this page.
