According to FAST, the first 50 guests who sign up for memberships, programs, or swim lessons during the open house will receive a free limited edition shirt.

FAST is a swimming and training facility that includes an indoor 10-lane 50-meter/25-yard competition pool and a 7-lane 50-meter/25-yard/25-meter outdoor competition pool. The facility can accommodate up to 2,000 spectators.

Since its grand opening in March 2022, the facility has hosted multiple competitions ranging from local, regional, and state meets to age-group, high school, and collegiate meets. Swim clubs and training groups have traveled across the country and internationally to train at the facility, and U.S.A. Swimming has hosted multiple clinics for local and national swimmers, according to FAST.

Thousands of local community members have also attended swim lessons, recreational and competitive swim events, and birthday party celebrations. In a social media post, FAST stated that the facility is currently booking meets, events, and parties through 2025.
