Bluff City Bluefins : Background-image
Registration for the 2017 Season is open at the YMCA!

The Bluff City Bluefins is a recreational swim team offering instruction, training and competition to swimmers through age 19. We participate in the Memphis Summer Swim League (MSSL) which is comprised of 10 independent and country club swim teams. The Bluefins are 11 times defending MSSL City Champions! The only individual requirement to join the team is that each swimmer can swim 1 length of the pool (any stroke) and unaided.

Practices begin the end of May, and are held at the Ric Nuber YMCA. There are 5 to 6 dual meets throughout June and July on Thursday nights. A championship meet is held mid-July (to participate your swimmer must have swam in a minimum of 2 dual meets during the season).

Registration fees for 2017 are $190 for the first swimmer and $150 for additional swimmers in the same family; all swimmers incur a registration fee of $25 each. Registration includes all practices, a team t-shirt, cap and all meet fees. A YMCA membership is required prior to registering with the swim team (arranged directly with the Y and info will be posted to our site). Team Swimsuits are optional and can be ordered online. More info to come on suit orders!

Swimming is a 100% volunteer run sport, therefore ALL parents are required to support the team throughout the season with a minimum of 3 to 4 volunteer shifts - NO EXCEPTIONS. There are many opportunities from helping "behind the scenes" with the Board positions and on deck specifically during home and away meets.
