2021 FAST Pentathlon


The Flambeau Area Swim Team competed in its first meet since the pandemic began on
Saturday, Nov. 13 at the Ladysmith pool.
During the Lusk Pentathlon, the FAST swimmers had many significant improvements
and best times in their events. Notable mentions include Lauren Hansen and Kayleen
Powell dropping more than a minute across all five of their events.
Other significant improvements include swimmers Sarah Allard, Abi Fye, Signey Heath,
Elijah Hendrick, Nolan Kammerud, Sophia Kammerud, Luke Mikunda, Eli Minton,
Hannah Minton, Lyra Moffitt, Charley Nobles, Olivia Repka, Syrus Trott, Nash
VanDeVoort, Valerie VanDeVoort and Kadence Wagner. These swimmers all swam best
times of 15 or more seconds across each of their events.
Many new FAST swimmers made their debuts on Satuday.
The Lusk Pentathlon is named for FAST founder Jerry Lusk.
The significant improvement in all swimmers is contributed to their strong work ethic to
continually improve. The 2020-2021 swim season did not have any swim meets; however
the team used that season to build skills, improve technique and form and develop as
swimmers. This showed in returning swimmers throughout the meet.
FAST swim coaches believe even more great swims will continue to be seen at upcoming
events.

USA Swimming

It is time to get your USA Swimming registration forms sent in if you want or need to be registered this year. Below you will find the answers to some of the questions regarding USA Swimming registration.

Who should register as a USA Swimmer?

USA registration is only required if you are swimming at a USA Swimming approved swim meet. USA swim meets include the WI Regional swim meet in Fond du Lac, Midwest Regionals in Minnesota, and all meets that take place outside of the regular swim season (i.e. summer swim meets). None of the regular season conference swim meets require USA Swimming registration.

When should I register?

The ideal time to register as a USA swimmer is between September 1st and December 31st. Registration is good until December 31st the following year.

How do I register?

The forms are all located on the NLAC (USA Club) page along with their instructions.

How much does USA Swimming cost?

Registration normally costs $93. If you qualify for the OUTREACH program, registration cost is reduced to only $25.

HELLO FAST!

We hope you had a great summer! Swim season is quickly approaching and the board is starting to plan for it. Coach Emily and Board President Cory attended the Conference Meeting yesterday, which means we have a schedule! Check it out under the “meet information” tab. Registration information will be available in the next couple of weeks. It is typically in late October. We needs TONs of help this year because we host 3 meets, including Divisionals. There will be more formal expectations for parent/guardian volunteering so watch for that…more information to come.

We have two board positions available: Vice President and Volunteer Manager. These board positions come with 50% off swim fees. If interested in learning more, please contact Cory atverdecoryslp@gmail.com or 715-271-1681 (call or text)
