Membership Information

 


We are looking forward to working with both swimmers and parents as we prepare for another successful swim team season.

 

Two Payment Options

 

  • Pay the entire balance of the program in full at the time of registration.

 

  • Pay through automatic bank/credit card draft option.  A minimum NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of $100 must accompany your registration form.  The balance of your fees can be drafted in up to five equal monthly payments starting September 2017 for five successive months with the final draft in January 22, 2018.  You may choose to draft 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 months but in all cases the first draft will begin in September, 2017 and follow in monthly succession.

 

There will be a $25 sibling discount for each additional child in an individual family.  This discount does not apply to the deposit.

 

Families with outstanding dues must settle that debt with the Y before they will be permitted to sign up for the 2017-2018 swim season.

 

Special arrangements for payment fees, for personal reasons, may be made by contacting the YMCA’s President/CEO prior to the date the fees are due.

 

Membership Requirement

 

YMCA District and National Policies state all team members must be annual members of the local YMCA they compete for to participate in meets. The YMCA is required to verify membership of participants to the District prior to the first meet. Membership scholarships are available for those in need. Contact the Membership Director if you need additional information. If you purchase a bank draft payment plan for your membership you must continue it for an entire calendar year.  Failure to do so may be a violation of the membership rules as described in “Rules that Govern YMCA Swimming”. Penalty for this violation is that the swimmer will be deemed ineligible for the following season and their results for the current season will be voided.

 

Level I swim team is geared mainly for swimmers ages 11 and under or swimmers with limited Swim Team experience. It is beneficial, but not necessary, for these swimmers to be familiar with the four competitive strokes and have had past swim team experience or involvement in our Intro to Swim Team program. The main emphasis for this level is on refining competitive swim skills and teaching skills not yet learned. At this level, technique of competitive swimming skills is vital. Once techniques are learned, the group will begin to concentrate on training and racing.
