FAST Query & General Info

Times & Membership Database
Dale Maine, Developer

In December of 2003, Connecticut Swimming (CSI) launched Connecticut FAST a MS .Net application over a SQL Server database hosting all CSI meet results since 1998, as well as club, swimmer, official, and coach information. Currently FAST holds approximately 2,683 meets and over 3 million individual swims. Coaches, swimmers, and parents may query best times, track athlete's progress for each event, championship meet qualification, registration, CSI records, meets entered, Top 25 times, etc. Championship meets definitions are imported and clubs can see who qualifies to swim what events and the system automates the entry process. The process of transferring a swimmer's history from team to team is automated by allowing the new team to pull an export of a swimmer's history to load into team management software. Clubs may archive files, submit meet bids, enter championship meets, export/import swimmer history. There are approximately 35 submittals to manage banquet reservations, transfers, applications, etc. returning 19,000 forms to date. Parents and/or athletes may create a My Account to manage online applications for various CSI programs, submit an address change, etc. Queries include: Record Times, Best Times, Top Times, Meets Entered, Championship Qualification, Teams, Officials, Coach Expiration, Swimmer Registration, and Meet Membership Verification. Barry Silver is credited for the name Connecticut FAST (Find Athletes, Swims, and Times).
