The Flambeau Area Swim Team is part of the Central Wisconsin Swim Conference, which is divided into two (2) divisions: East and West. We are in the West Division.
FAST is made up of swimmers from Rusk, Chippewa and Sawyer Counties. Including, but not limited to, the cities of Ladysmith, Conrath, Tony, Sheldon, Glen Flora, Bruce and Weyerhaeuser.

Our season typically runs from October through March. Swim meets are held on Saturdays in November, December and January. The Divisional Championship Meet is held the first part of February. Those swimmers who finish in the top 6 places in any individual or relay event at the Divisional Meet continue on to the Conference Championship Meet the following weekend. This concludes our regular conference swim schedule. However, swimmers can continue their swim season with the State Sectionals Meet and by meeting the qualifying swim time standards for the USA Swimming, and can also attend the State Swim Meets at the end of February/early March. The swim season ends with the Swim Banquet in March. All swimmers receive a certificate and participation medal. Trophies are given for most valuable and most improved, as well as, special coach’s awards.
FAST is dedicated to providing youth in the community with the opportunities to:
- Achieve swimming proficiency in four basic strokes: Freestyle, Breaststroke, Backstroke and Butterfly.
- Compete as an individual as well as part of a team. The swimmer will work toward stroke and time improvement. They will learn and be expected to demonstrate good sports character.
- Have fun. It’s fun to practice with teammates, meet new friends at swim meets and take part in new experiences. FAST values each swimmer as an important member of the team.
Our coaches and our club recognize that each swimmer joins the team with differing abilities and goals. Of primary importance is the swimmer’s commitment to perform to his or her best at practices, and at meets. When a young person becomes a member of the Flambeau Area Swim Team he/she learns the value of sportsmanship and teamwork. Swimming through FAST provides physical, emotional and intellectual skills that will last a lifetime.
