F.A.S.T. Swim Team Registration


Under the leadership of Head Coach and Aquatics Director, Shawn Columbia, our competitive swimmers are offered the option of swimming with the YMCA Swim Team and/or with the U.S. Swimming year-round team. Emphasis is placed on personal skill improvement as well as good sportsmanship and team spirit. Dedication, teamwork, discipline, and goal setting are all objectives of the program.

We have swimmers compete at all levels from city, state, regionals, nationals and Olympic trials. Our goal is to continue to build a swim program that will be a developmental tool for all swimmers.

Asheboro (SHARKS)

The Sharks is a summer league swim team for swimmers 6 to 18 (based on age as of June 1). We join with the team of HIgh Point Country Club to make one big team that swims in the High Point Community Swim Association.

Practices focus on stroke technique while providing a safe and FUN environment to learn and grow through swimming. It is both an exciting and competitive atmosphere where the goal is to develop each team member as both a swimmer and a person. Practices are a combination of hard work and play. At meets, we instill team spirit by sitting together and cheering on our entire team. Good sportsmanship is a must and the children all create new friendships with our High Point partners. 

Registration for the Summer Swim Team will begin on Monday, April 30th. The first official day of practice is Wednesday, May 30th. (Bonus practices will be held on May 16, 21, 23 and 28th for those who register early.) The exact dates and times of practices are listed below (days and times change once school is out). The cost for the entire season is $125 - this includes monthly practice dues, meet entry fees and a team t-shirt and swim cap.

Meets are held on most Tuesday evenings at various pools in the High Point area. Most meets begin at 6:00 PM with warmups of 5:00 PM for home meets (@ High Point Country Club, Randolph-Asheboro YMCA or High Point Swim Club) and 5:30 PM for away meets.
