2019-2020 Upcoming Season

  Greetings Wavemakers!!

Can you believe that the summer is coming to a close so quickly?! I sure can't! Believe it or not it's time to look towards the Fall 2019 - 2020 Season. 
Some of you may have heard that there is a chance that the YOFM swim team will not be a team due to not having coaching staff. Their swimmers are currently looking for new homes to swim. This could potentially mean there is opportunity for growth as a team in numbers. With that being said. Returning registration will open on 8/6. All returning swimmers including high school swimmers will need to register and secure their spot on the team before 8/26. After that date we will holding placement evaluations and there is a chance that if you wait the team maybe full. In my history we have never had to turn away swimmers but there is chance this year that it may happen. 
There are two parts to registration as there has been for in years past. To complete the registration process you will need to go to the front desk at the Chesterfield YMCA and register online on Teamunify to secure your spot. 
At this point I am working on finalizing next season's schedule but I will pass along the information about the swim team evaluation that you can pass along to those who have been asking you. CLICK HERE FOR FLYER
We also wanted to make you aware of the meet requirement change for this upcoming season -   All swimmers are required to participate in a minimum of 5 (five) swim meets throughout the season. Our Team typically offers 2-3 swim meets per month. High School swimmers will receive 1 meet credit for swimming High School meets. Please remember that each swimmer must swim at least 3 YMCA meets to participate in Area Championships, should your swimmer qualify. We STRONGLY encourage ALL swimmers to attend Regional Championships that are scheduled for March 6-8, 2020. Mark your calendars now! 
Please let me know if you have any questions! Have a great weekend!
