Not sure what you need to know?

Start out with a member of our Parent Advisory Committee. If they don’t know the answer, they’ll know who to connect you with on topics like:

  • General program information
  • Program oversight and YMCA mission
  • I can’t volunteer
  • My account wasn’t charged properly or I need a refund
  • How to refer an interested athlete
  • How can I get more involved in helping, volunteering
  • Signing up for meet/events
  • What to expect at a meet
  • Deadlines, meet location, where to park, hotel blocks
  • What are “Q” times
  • My swimmer’s times are wrong, missing in their account
