About Us

Mike and Jennifer Young are the co-owners of FAST, LLC and proud parents of 3 wonderful children. FAST opened in August of 2010 with just one student. God has definitely blessed us with a job where we get to help elementary age kids have a safe place to play, have fun and get plenty of exercise.

Before opening FAST, Mike, born and raised right here in Wilmington, worked with ALLTEL for 15 years before holding director positions with 2 other companies. Mikes hobbies include racquetball, where he won the 2005 NC State Singles Championship and awarded the 2006 NC Sportsmanship Award, and martial arts, earning a black belt in tae kwon do. 

At FAST, we keep kids active through sports and games. We play flag football, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, basketball and a host of others. Our games are competitive in nature. We have a wide range of abilities from travel sports athletes to kids who have never played. Our specialty is helping kids navigate how they compete. We want them to be good teammates, know how to respect officials and the rules of the games, give 100% effort, and how to handle the emotions that come from competition.

Here is what others have to say about us.

My Son started at FAST when he started kindergarten. I'll never forget the day we spent as a family looking for an after-school program for our little boy. Every place we went just felt "wrong". Our Son was with us and he was very shy and withdrawn when we went in to talk with the different programs available in our area. The last place I had written down was FAST, I made the phone call, and they said to come on over for a visit. When we walked in, our Son was immediately mesmerized, left our side and was so engaged watching the other children, not much older than him and their accelerated athletic ability. It is 5 years later, and My Boy is in the 4th grade now. In all these years of going to FAST, we have watched our Son's athletic ability, competitive spirit, and sportsmanship grow each and everyday. Mike and Jen,being parents of 3, are incredible with all of their kids at FAST. They instill mutual respect to all of the kids, and we couldn't have found a place any more perfect. Thank you so much for helping us raise our boy through these years!

My son had been to a lot of after school camps, summer camps and camps during Holidays. This has been his favorite by a long shot. He didn't not want to come home. Thank you guys!

My boys have been at FAST for 3 years now, and I still struggle to get them to leave when it's time to go home!! They love the time they spend at FAST. Mr. Mike teaches them good social skills, including being a team player, being a good sport, and he encourages them to try new things and give their best effort. I have complete confidence and peace of mind when they're at FAST that they will be safe, have a great day, and come home tired!

My son looks forward to FAST's Summer Program year after year. He has a blast, plays hard all day, tries new things, and is excited to do it again the next morning. Thank you Mike and FAST crew!
