2019-2020 Monthly Program Fees for SPY Swim Team 

To ensure a spot on the SPY Swim Team for your returning swimmers, SPY uses an all-electronic registration and billing system through our TeamUnify Website: www.spyswimteam.org. All fees for participation with the SPY Swim Team will be handled electronically; neither cash nor checks will be accepted. Fees and deadlines are listed below.  Coaches will begin to approve and assign swimmers to roster/practice groups in July and will notify swimmers of their groups before the season starts in September.

Participation on the SPY Swim Team requires the following: 

  • SPY Family Registration - $150
  • SPY Monthly Program Fees - based on practice/roster group
  • USA Swimming Membership Fee - $87/swimmer
  • YMCA Family Membership Fee - $94/month

Family Registration Fee

The Family Registration Fee is $150.00 for the season. All accounts must be current and in good standing to register your swimmer for the next season. This $150 registration fee is assessed to your TeamUnify account on July 1 of each year. Families wishing to disenroll must do so before July 1st .

USA Fees

To participate in USA swimming invitational meets, each swimmer must be registered annually. USA Swimming membership fees (per swimmer) are billed to your Team Unify account and paid, from SPY to the Maryland Swimming/US Swimming organization. These fees are billed to your Team Unify account on August 1. The current USA annual membership fee is $85/swimmer.

YMCA Membership

To participate in YMCA youth swimming, which includes both dual-meets and invitational meets, all SPY swimmers must have a YMCA Family membership.

Memberships are available through, and paid directly to, the Y in Arnold. Registration information can be found on the Y of Central Maryland website. The current Family-level membership is $94/month.

SPY Monthly Program Fees

The monthly program fees vary based on roster/practice group. Payment is due on the first day of the month. Billing for Monthly Program Fees will begin with the September 1 billing cycle.
