How do I register for the team?

Registration is a two-part process: 

Step 1: Register with the FFYS Boosters online. (Don't worry if you don't know your practice group yet!)

Step 2: Complete the registration process by stopping by the YMCA and signing up for the swim team program.

You must enroll in the swim team program at the YMCA.  You will need to submit a registration form, which is available at the Y.  All swimmers must have an active YMCA membership to enroll.  New swimmers should attend a coach evaluation session prior to enrollment to determine his or her  practice group.  Returning swimmers may also attend a coach evaluation for practice group placement.  SWIMMERS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PRACTICE IF THEY ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH THE Y!

All swimmers - new and returning - must register online with the team. You can do this now, and then determine your child's practice group during the evaluation process.  During online registration, you will create your online team account, pay the team booster/activity fee using a credit card or electronic check through a secure site.  That payment method will then be linked to your team account and charged monthly for meet entry fees and other team-related expenses (for example, merchandise). This process is handled by  FFYS Boosters Inc. and is separate from the monthly payments to the YMCA for membership and/or program fees. In addition to streamlining the fee payment process, your online account enables you to easily sign up for team events, sign up for volunteer opportunities, see your swimmer’s swim times, maintain your contact information, and receive team emails and newsletters. The Booster Fee for the 2019-2020 season is $100 for the first swimmer in a single family, and $50 per swimmer for additional children.

If you have questions about FFYS or the online registration process, please contact one of the  FFYS Booster Board members.  Questions about YMCA registration should be directed to Dena Bernstein ( [email protected])  at the Farmington Family YMCA.
