FOBY Freestyle 04/02/2019

Dear FOBY Swimmers & Families,


Thank you to everyone for making last week’s FOBY Swim Team Banquet such a special event. If you’d like to view pictures from the event, a link to an album will be posted on the front page of our website.


I hope everyone is enjoying the last week of the offseason – Spring Training starts this Monday 4/8!

PLEASE NOTE – As is explained in the team handbook, while pool practices start on 4/8, dryland practices do not start until the following week, Monday 4/15.  


Group Assignments, Practice Schedule and the Team Handbook for the 2019 Spring Training Session are attached to this email.

Below are our registration instructions:

All required paperwork must be submitted directly to the Swim Team mailbox on the pool deck at the Freehold YMCA in order to be processed. The following four forms - which are all included in the attached FOBY Swim Team Handbook - must be fully completed and included in a sealed envelope with the swimmers name on the outside:

Handbook Acknowledgement

Swimmer Registration Form

Medical Release Form

Credit Card Draft Authorization

Each of these forms is required for each swimmer you are registering - multiple swimmers listed on one form is not permitted. All families are required to have a valid credit card on file. Payment by check is only available if you pay all fees in full by 4/15. Registration is currently open. The non-refundable $100 initial deposit will be charged upon receipt your swimmer’s completed and signed paperwork. You have two options for payment of program fees – you may pay in full by 4/15 (via check or credit card), or go onto Credit Card Draft via the Payment Schedule (please note your choice on the registration form). Any families who add the 2019 USA Swimming registration to their fees will have that charged on Monday 4/29. Our Team Administrator, Anna Yee, is the contact person for any questions regarding swim team registration or payments. She can be reached via email at, and via phone at 732-462-0464 x119.
