2016-2017 Registration

Dear Breaker Families and PROSPECTIVE Breakers,

The Breakers start back up September 2016 as an official Y program and a USA/Y swim team.  Our HOME is fabulous NEW Grand Traverse Bay YMCA on Silver Lake Road!  The team will swim at both the Silver Lake and Central facilities.

Breakers are required to be a member of the YMCA.  Families can choose to have a family membership or just a membership for the individual swimmer.  YMCA membership RATES can be found HERE.  Swim Team and YMCA membership rates are presented HERE

The Parent Advisory Committee will work with the Head Coach of the Breakers and the CEO of the Y.  Meeting will be once a month on the second Tuesday at the Y from 6-8pm.  Contact Coach Kathy if you have an interest in helping out by being a CHAIR or a member of a committee!  More details HERE.

The fact that Breakers are a DUAL affiliated team (USA and YMCA) requires a second step to our swimmer registration.  Step 1 is done at the YMCA front desk (Silver Lake Road facility) and Step 2 is done on the site “Short/Long Course 2016/2017 Registration”.  See the “How to Register” section below for more detailed information on each step and for NEW Swimmer Evaluations.

At the Grand Traverse Bay TC Breakers there is more opportunity for our swimmers and our swim families.  Look forward to seeing you a the Pool and the YMCA!

Contact Coach Kathy if you have any further questions!
