Welcome to the Boise YMCA Swim Team Electronic Registration platform! We are pleased to not only offer electronic registration but also electronic payment processing for your monthly dues. Team and USA Swimming Registration Instructions can be found below for New Swimmers, Swimmers who qualify for Outreach/Financial Assistance, Returning Swimmers, and Transfers.
NEW SWIMMERS TO THE BOISE Y SWIM TEAM:
Please DO NOT register for the team until after you have tried out as all fees are non-refundable!
Information on fees associated with joining the team, including monthly dues fees, can be found on the Team Information/Fees link. The Boise Y Team Start-up Fee of $103 (or $45 for Outreach) must either be charged to a credit card or accompany the forms outlined below. This fee covers the annual 2018 USA Swimming fee of $68 (or $10 for Outreach) plus the $35 Team Joining Fee. Your monthly dues will be billed to your account at the end of each month for the following month. Please take the time to read and understand exactly what joining the team will cost you both in fees and equipment costs.
The required Program Fee which is billed each year on December 1 is prorated for those who join the team at any other time of the year. Families will be given 2 months to pay this fee once it is billed to your account.
Practice group explanations and expectations, the current practice schedules for each Y, information on Y memberships, financial assistance, fundraising, etc. are also posted on the Team Info tab.
Upon completion of your registration and the receipt of your forms and fees, you will be given access to your own private account which will enable you to easily declare and sign-up for swim meets, sign-up for parent volunteer jobs, see your children's swim times history, maintain your own contact information, and more.
IMPORTANT & REQUIRED! After completing all screens, scan and email, take a picture and email, or snail mail a Proof of Age document for your swimmer (either a copy of a birth certificate or a copy of a passport), a check made out to the Boise Y Swim Team to cover your New Member Start-Up Fee (if you do not charge your fees to a credit card during the registration process), and a copy of your low income eligibility documentation (if applicable) to our Team Admin Patty Stratton (2017 S. Roosevelt Street; Boise, ID 83705) or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, your registration will not be considered complete until the proof of age document and proof low income eligibility (if applicable) AND payment are received.
Swimmers Who Qualify for Outreach (Financial Assistance):
The Outreach Form is only for swimmers who qualify for Financial Assistance and who can provide proof of low income (see explanation below). If you qualify, please send the Outreach form, your proof of age document, and proof of need as outlined below to the Team Admin.

(USA Swimming Registration Fee is $10)
*USA Swimming provides an Outreach Registration Fee for low income swimmers. This annual fee is $10. In order to register at the $10 rate, families must provide a copy of the letter from your school district granting free or reduced hot lunch, a copy of your Medicaid card, a food stamp assistance program benefits letter, or other documentation consistent with income eligibility. If you qualify for the Outreach rate, please send a check for $45 ($10 plus $35 Joining Fee) with your documentation. If you wish to use a credit card, you must pay the $103 fee ($68 plus $35 Joining Fee). Once your documentation is received, a $58 credit will be applied to your account.
Current and Returning Swimmers: PLEASE READ!!
Please update your account information, go through the screens and agree to our team policies, and complete the online Parent Volunteer Form.
(Please Note: If you have been off the team less than 2 years, you do not need to pay the "New Member Joining Fee" upon check out BUT you must pay the USA Swimming Registration fee. If your swimmer is returning from a short Leave of Absence, no need to complete the online registration for New Members. Please contact the Team Admin (email@example.com) and ask her to reactivate your account.)
Returning Members Whose Account Is Currently Inactive: Please contact the Team Admin (firstname.lastname@example.org) before trying to complete this online registration. Your account needs to be activated in order for you to resume swimming on the team. You must complete all screens in this registration module and pay the 2018 USA Swimming Registration Fee in order to begin practicing with the team again. You do not need to pay the Team Joining Fee unless you have been off the team longer than 2 years.
Returning Members do not have to submit a proof of age document but parents must submit the Parent Volunteer form or your swimmer will not be activated in the system.
Returning members will be billed the current year's Program Fee on a prorated basis upon joining the team and will have two months to pay the fee once it is billed to your account.
Transferring from Another Club?
Transfers: If you are already a member of USA Swimming for 2018 and are transferring from another team, please complete the Transfer Form (posted below) and send in with your Proof of Age Document. Swimmers transferring from another Snake River Club will be charged a $10 transfer fee. I will credit your account for the USA Swimming fee if you are already registered for 2018. If transfering to the team after January 1, 2018, you will be billed the Team Joining Fee ($35) and the Team Program Fee (dependent upon your swimmer's practice group). Both will be prorated based on the number of months left in the year.
