Membership Information
The Melrose YMCA Sharks have two seasons - SCY (Short Course Yards) beginning in September and LCM (Long Course Meter) beginning in May.  We refer to these as Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer. 
Try-outs are held at the beginning of the season for new Sharks. Returning Sharks from the previous season must place their deposits before try-outs to retain their spot on the roster.  Swimmers new to the Melrose area after scheduled try-outs should call the Aquatics Director at the Melrose YMCA at 781-665-4360 to check for availability on the roster and arrange a try-out.
Our practice squads are adjusted seasonally to best suit the needs of the current swimmers, but generally fall into four groups - Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors.  We do not place our swimmers in groups by age, but by ability. 
We participate in YMCA Swimming as members of the Eastern Massachusetts YMCA Swim League, and USA Swimming as members of New England Swimming.  All members of the Sharks swim team must have a membership at the Melrose YMCA before practices can begin.
