Philosophy

The FAST Makos fosters the swimmers’ development and sense of personal achievement through swimming. The club provides excellent coaching for all swimmers, regardless of age and ability, to reach their goals in an environment of friendship, fun, and team spirit.

The Makos believe that swimming can be an important part of the overall development of the student-athlete. In addition to the physical conditioning and cross training benefits, swimming allows the Makos to focus on the process of self-evaluation and improvement teaching athletes to set goals, work towards achieving them, and evaluating each performance to determine what the next steps are to improve.

Swimming for the Makos is not about winning; it is about learning values and always trying to do your best. We focus on sportsmanship and team spirit.
