USA Swimming Survey
AMFY is dually-registered in both YMCA and USA Swimming associations. We primarily swim meets in the YMCA-side with other YMCA teams. However, we do participate in several of the bigger, more competitive meets in the USA Swimming association to give our stronger swimmers some extra competition. While the USA Swimming meets we choose to attend are geared towards our fastest swimmers, ALL swimmers on AMFY are welcome to participate. The catch is you must pay an additional fee to register your swimmer in the USA Swimming side of things (ranges from $20 for a couple meets to $79 for an entire year), on top of the meet fees for the various meets. Participation in USA Swimming meets is completely optional for AMFY swimmers.
For those families who may be interested in USA Swimming this season, I would like you to take a very short survey at the link below. This lists the potential meets we could attend, and I need to gauge interest in these meets. This is NOT a 100% commitment to meets, I just need an estimate and ensure enough people are interested in the particular meets.
Please complete this survey by Saturday (10/9) if you are interested. Only families interested in USA Swimming need to complete this survey.
Beast Challenge at Great White
Back by "popular demand," we will once again be offering various levels of the AMFY Beast Challenge during the Great White North Invitational. Please see the atttached flyer for details. Please note, this is completely optional and should only be attempted by our more experienced swimmers. Talk to your swimmers' coach if you are unsure about your swimmers' ability to "complete" the challenge.
