 About Fitter and Faster Swim Tour

Founded in 2009, the Fitter and Faster Swim Tour Presented by is the only turn-key elite level swim and water polo clinic operation in the United States. Fitter and Faster handles all of the work from the day they agree to produce a clinic or camp with "local hosts" until the event concludes. Afterward, they send "Thank you for attending e-mails" and surveys to all the participants and volunteers. When the Fitter and Faster Swim Tour was established in 2009, the company produced fewer than 20 clinics. That figure exploded between 2013 and 2014, when the company organized 230 clinics across 42 states.
