First Colony Swim Team creates opportunities, within a safe and supportive environment, for swimmers to merge passion and commitment with expertise resulting in the highest level of personal performance.

FCST is committed to providing an enjoyable, safe, and complete swimming experience for all ages and abilities. 
We maintain a positive and challenging teaching and training environment in which swimmers develop individual discipline, self-esteem, and pride in individual and team achievements.
In addition to athletic achievements, we encourage a fully rounded family, academic and social life.

        FCST Team Philosophy      




  FCST Coaching Philosophy



Our program provides progressive development through a series of age group and ability/commitment levels.At each level we strive to recognize and positively reinforce each swimmer’s pursuit and attainment of defined goals.

At each successive level more complex stroke technique drills and advanced theory are introduced, and more practice time and endurance/dry-land work are required.

Our coaching staff firmly believes that  engaging in competitive opportunities teaches swimmers valuable life lessons, such as how to control anxiety and stress, and how to deal positively with both success and failure.

FCST staff, swimmers, and parents should strive to demonstrate our team values at all team functions:
Passion/Team Spirit
