FAST "B" Swim Meets
Fairfax Area Swim Team (FAST) meets are on Monday nights.These developmental "B" meets give each team member a chance to compete in a meet, win ribbons, and develop swimming strokes. There is no seeding for this league. No team scores are kept and times are not official NVSL times. However, these are refereed meets designed to provide competitive conditions that are similar to NVSL Saturday “A” meets. The times received at these meets as well as "A" meets are used for seeding the "A" meets.
First through sixth place ribbons are awarded for each event for ages 7 and older. Six and under star ribbons are awarded for our youngest swimmers. Lakeview also awards participation ribbons to all team members who compete but do not receive place ribbons. The assignment of teams is based on geographical proximity and not the relative competitiveness of the teams.
"B" meets consist of the same events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly as the "A" meets. Developmental meets do no not have relay events, but do include the individual medley (IM). The IM is a 100-meter event composed of 25 meters of each of the four individual strokes in the order of fly, back, breast, free.
A swimmer may only sign up for two strokes plus the individual medley. Saturday swimmers who placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in a stroke at the previous Saturday meet may not sign up to swim that stroke at the next Monday FAST Meet.
All Monday meets start at 6:00 pm unless otherwise announced. The home team warms up from 5:00-5:25 pm, and the away team warms up from 5:25-5:50 pm.
