DSMY Marlins Online Registration System 

Welcome to the Greater Des Moines YMCA electronic registration platform! We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration. The process is simple for both new and returning members. Once registered, you’ll gain access to your own private account that will enable you to easily declare for swim meets, sign up for service hours, see your children’s swim time histories, maintain your contact information, and more! 

We look forward to having you join the Greater Des Moines YMCA Marlins and are excited for another great season! 


New Members 
(did not swim or register with the DSMY Marlins previously.) 

  • All swimmers new to the team need to attend a Tryout/Evaluation session at the practice site where they would like to train and be assigned a practice training group. Click this link to our Tryout Information  page and complete the Tryout form for your specific practice site to have your swimmer evaluated. 

  • Within this registration process, you will select the swimmer's appropriate practice location and group. Your practice site head coach will advise you after your tryout which group to register with. 

  • Spring/Summer 2022 Season dates: 04-04-22 through Summer Championship in July.  

    • All swimmers MUST be registered by May 1 to participate in the 2022 Spring/Summer season. We offer staggered start dates of: April 4 or May 2.  

    • All NEW swimmers participating with the Walnut Creek and Waukee practice sites must start in April.  

    • Swimmers practicing for championship meets beyond July will be billed manually.  

    • Swimmers competing past the automatic billing period will be invoiced accordingly for their training time. 

  • As a new Member, you are encouraged but not required to sign-up for USA Swimming membership. Please ask your practice site head coach if USA Swimming membership makes sense for your swimmer. If you are transferring from another USA Swimming club, please provide your USA Swimming ID during the registration process and DSMY will assist you in with the transfer paperwork.  

  • By registering for the DSMY Marlins swim team, you have committed your swimmer for the entire Spring/Summer 2022 season. Please note: 

    • We do not offer refunds, partial credits or discounts for vacations, missed practices or leaving before the season has ended. However, we do offer monthly payment options. 

    • If not paying in full, your payment at the time of registration is your swimmer's first monthly installment of the season dues. 

    • The YMCA offers financial assistance to those in need. Please reach out to your practice site Welcome Center for details. 

  • Once the registration is completed, you will be notified of your member status and a secure password will be forwarded to you to allow access to the DSMY Swim Team website. New members will only be accepted if there is room in their respective group. Your account will remain in "pending" status until approved by a coach and team site administrator. 

  • Upon accessing the DSMY Swim Team website, please review your account information and make any updates/additions/corrections as needed. 

  • Swimmers will not be allowed to swim in meets if their Team Unify account and YMCA membership are not current. 

  • All families are expected to provide 12 service hours during our hosted DSMY meets located at Indianola, Waukee, and Wellmark. If your swimmer(s) is competing in the meet, you are expected to fill a volunteer position. 

If registration is open (see dates listed above), click on the green Continue button below and proceed through the process. Remember if you are not paying in full, your payment at the time of registration is for the 1st month installment of the season dues. If you have selected the monthly payment option, an automatic credit card draft will take place on 7/1 for the balance of the season dues
