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
STEPS TO JOIN:
- 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
- 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.
- 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
(firstname.lastname@example.org) to be added to the wait list. Do NOT sign
your swimmer up for a different group.
- 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.
