Fees

YMCA Membership

Because the swim team is a YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities program, each Swim Team member must also be a member of the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities. The membership fee varies depending upon whether you have a youth or family membership. Arrangements for becoming a YMCA member should be made at the membership Desk at your YMCA location. Your membership allows you full use of all of the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities facilities. Check at the front desk for membership costs.

All swimmers under the age of 10 must be accompanied to practice by a parent or an adult guardian. This person must stay in the facility with their swimmer during practice.

Seasonal Program Fee

Becoming a member of the YMCA Swim Team means fun, fitness, and teamwork. It also means a financial obligation. At first glance, it may seem as if the swim team is expensive. However, when taking into account the hours of coaching your swimmer receives for his/her program fee, the swim team offers a great value for a team experience designed to promote self-esteem, self-discipline, and good sportsmanship.

The YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities Swim Team charges each swimmer a seasonal fee. The fees are dependent upon the group which your swimmer is placed in and may change as your swimmer moves from group to group.

Practice Group

The Y Swim Team is divided into several training groups, done with the consideration of the swimmers development of technical skills, training abilities, maturity, competitive levels, time standards and group availability.The progressive structure of these groups provides a setting in which swimmers are continually challenged yet are able to experience individual and team successes. All group placement decisions are made by the entire coaching staff and done so in the best interest of the swimmers and their long term development.
