Calmar Area Swim Team
The Calmar Area Swim Team (CAST) is for everyone ages 5 - 18 from the communities of Spillville, Ossian, Ft. Atkinson, Calmar, Festina and beyond. The mission of CAST is:
1. to provide novice through skilled swimmers with a team swimming experience;
2. in instill in youth the values of teamwork, responsibility, sportsmanship, leadership and physical health in a family oriented atmosphere, and,
3. to establish a program that allows for each individual athlete to reach his or her full potential, regardless of the level of development, talent or economic circumstances.
We participate in the Northeast Iowa Conference. Other conference teams include Cresco, Decorah, Elkader/Strawberry Point, Manchester, Monona/Postville, Sumner, Waukon and West Union. We host four meets and travel away to four meets each season. Our team is transported together by bus.
Although CAST has a great working relationship with the Calmar pool, it is not a program ran by the pool. If you are interested in becoming a member of CAST, please contact the CAST Volunteer Coordinator, Nicole Ondrashek, at (563)379-3156.
