Former FAST Treasurer Arrested On Suspected Embezzlement

Tracy Lynn Noseworthy, formerly the treasurer of the Fullerton Aquatic Sports Team (FAST) in California has been arrested on charges of embezzling more than a quarter of a million dollars from the swim club, according to MyNewsLA.com.

The NewsLA report says that the 42-year-old Noseworthy had served as treasurer from 2012 through last year, and is accused of embezzling about $266,000 from FAST over that roughly-4-year time period.

Police arrested her Tuesday night based on the results of what Patch.com calls “an extensive investigation by Fullerton Police Department detectives of the Crimes Property Unit.”

Noseworthy was brought in under an arrest warrant for a number of official charges: computer access and fraud, burglary, making false entries in records or returns and embezzlement. She’ll be arraigned on Thursday and will also face “multiple sentence-enhancement allegations” (per both MyNewsLA and Patch.com) that include “aggravated white-collar crime exceeding $100,000 and property damage exceeding $200,000.”

The Fullerton Aquatics Sports Team is based out of Fullerton, California, just southeast of Los Angeles.  Noseworthy was actually from nearby Yorba Linda, CA, according to Patch.com. Yorba Linda is just east of Fullerton.

Never knew there was that much money in club teams.

If they are big enough, I think Bob made around 200k or more as CEO of NBAC

Me neither. In four years!!!! That’s pretty impressive.

Let’s take a moment to think about your responce. If a team has 300 swimmers and everyone pays 50 bucks a month to swim that’s $15,000 bucks a month. That doesn’t even included year round swim lessons programs.

$50/month is extremely conservative. Try $300/month+ for some major clubs.

And we wonder why more kids don’t end up in this sport…

WHO PAYS $50 A MONTH?!?! At my club, entry rate into age group swimmer pays $100 a month and our SR National group is $250 a month….we belong to midsize team of 700-800 swimmers….that adds up fast!! lets say avg cost is $125 a month, multiply by 700 swimmers that is $87,500 per month…

Swimfan

It was an example figure. To show the amount of money that a clubooger makes.

Swimmom

700-800 swimmers is not mid sized. That’s a large club.

I believe FAST was getting money from USA swimming too. Wasn’t it one of the national sites?

i think the surprise was more, that you could steal 260K and no one would notice. Not that a team couldnt make 260K in four years. You would need to bring in a lot of money for your team to not notice that $65,000 was missing at the end of the season. It’s probably how she ended up getting caught. Too greedy.

Not since 2012 when the Center of Excellence program went the way of the dodo.

There are no national team sites. Hasn’t been in four years.
