Columbia Falls Swim Team
The Columbia Falls Swim Team (CFST) is the Flathead Valley’s only summer league swim team. CFST is proudly represented by approximately 70 Flathead Valley athletes from the ages of 5 to 18 with skills sets ranging from novice to national level athletes. Our focus is progressive aquatic skills development, nutrition, character development and life skills. Ultimately, as participants develop these skills, they will become safer and better swimmers.
Why swimming? According to the American Red Cross, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children between the age of 1 and 14. Living in the Flathead Valley, our children are exposed to many bodies of water and our valley contains some of the deepest Glacier fed lakes in the world that should be approached with respect and understanding. Quite simply, children who possess a firm knowledge base and skill set of swimming, not only can save themselves, but also are far more equipped to recognize the inherent dangers of water and not become a statistic.
