JOINING AMFY SWIM TEAM

Thanks for seeking us out! We are a year-round club swim team owned and operated by the Auglaize-Mercer Family YMCA. All participants on the AMFY Swim Team must be current members of the Auglaize-Mercer YMCA. They must be members when they first start practice and keep the membership current through the end of the season. You can sign up for a membership at the front desk of either branch. For membership rates, click HERE.

Please feel free to browse our website for more info on the team. Specific questions can be directed to Coach Matt (mattreiss07@gmail.com).

STEPS TO JOIN:

  1. Attend one of three swim team evaluation dates. It does not matter which date as long as you attend one with your swimmer(s). This evaluation is to ensure your swimmer is "swim team ready" so the practices will be reasonable for them and not beyond their abilities. We want all swimmers to enjoy their experience on the team and NOT discourage them. We will also give you the practice group we feel would be best for their abilities. All new swimmers to AMFY must be evaluated prior to registration. Dates are listed HERE.
  2. Attend the Parent Fair on August 27 at the North YMCA (in Celina). You can come anytime between 5-7pm. Plan to spend 30-60 minutes, depending on your level of experience with a swim team. While attendance is not mandatory at this event, it will help to answer your questions and learn more about the team in a face-to-face, relaxed setting.
  3. Register your swimmer beginning August 28. You only need to pay the non-refundable deposit upon registration. Registration is first-come, first-serve for our team. We do sometimes run a wait-list for our practice groups, so register early. If you try to register and it says the group is full, please email Coach Matt (mattreiss07@gmail.com) to be added to the wait list. Do NOT sign your swimmer up for a different group.
  4. Plan to have your swimmer(s) membership active starting their first day of practice. You can visit the front desk of either location to discuss membership options and sign up.

PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE ON A WAITING LIST FOR ANY NEW MEMBERS TO JOIN OUR FALL/WINTER TEAM. EMAIL COACH MATT (MATTREISS07@GMAIL.COM) FOR INFORMATION.
