Seal Beach, CA - September 1, 2021 - TYR Sport is proud to announce that it has signed on as the exclusive swimwear supplier for the Florida Aquatics Swimming & Training program (FAST).
Set to open in March 2022 in Ocala, FAST is on track to be one of the five best swimming facilities in the country. The covered pool—called a natatorium—will feature an indoor 10-lane 50 meter/25 yd Olympic competition, pool deck space for up to 800 swimmers, and over 2,000 spectator seats. The Myrtha Pools 2020 Olympic Trials warm-up pool will be the outdoor competition pool. It will also become home to local high schools and numerous local aquatics programs.
"We are thrilled to partner with TYR in our brand new aquatic facility. Not only do they design exceptional products and offer remarkable customer service, TYR aligns with our core value of helping every athlete be their best. That makes them a clear-cut choice in a swimwear partner," said Circle Square Foundation Executive Director Rebecca Rogers.
The mission of FAST is to train swimmers and athletes of all ages and abilities to go beyond their best through exceptional coaching, premier facilities, and cutting-edge athletic programming. Head Coach Brian Schrader will lead the operational aspects of the FAST Swim team while coaching swimmers to attain their personal best. FAST will provide a wide variety of programs beyond recreation and competition. The programs at FAST will include swim lessons, drowning prevention, aquatic therapy and fitness, and life-saving water training for lifeguards and fire and rescue personnel. There is also an indoor fitness facility for optimal dryland athletic training.
