Registration for AMFY Swim team is done via our team website
Registration for returning families begins August 16
Registration for new families begins August 28
SWIMMERS NEW TO AMFY MUST ATTEND ONE OF THE THREE EVALUATION DATES
REGISTRATION IS FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED!!!!
Families returning to AMFY this year will have first opportunity to sign up for the team beginning on August 16. Starting August 28 registration will open to all and will end once groups are full. Due to safety concerns around lane space, along with keeping swimmer-to-coach ratios manageable, we limit the number of swimmers signed up for each practice group. We have set these limits at about the same level as our practice groups have been in the past. We are NOT shrinking the team, just making sure we don’t grow beyond our means. It’s entirely possible that we don’t have as many swimmers on the team as our limits, and all swimmers, past and present, very well may join the team. But we need to be safe, and we need to help the coaches do the best job they can.
To complete online registration, please visit the Online Registration tab on the home page.
YOU WILL REGISTER FOR SWIM TEAM VIA OUR TEAM WEBSITE THIS SEASON. You will only use the YMCA front desk to update your membership. You do not necessarily have to have your YMCA membership current when you register for swim team in August, but you MUST have your YMCA membership current when practices start in September. Please do not wait until the last-minute to update your YMCA membership. The front desk has every right to deny swimmers entry to practice if their membership is not active.
YMCA MEMBERSHIP IS REQUIRED FOR SWIM TEAM. Membership prices are not included in team fees.
SPRING CONDITIONING (April 29-May 30)
We will once again have a spring conditioning program that is separate from our Long Course season. This is so swimmers who wish to get a month of training in with AMFY before their summer seasons begin have an opportunity to work with their same AMFY coaches.
REGISTER FOR SPRING CONDITIONING AT THE FRONT DESK OF EITHER BRANCH YMCA.
YMCA members may begin registration for Spring Conditioning on April 14.
Non-members may begin registration for Spring Conditioning on April 21.
REGISTRATION IS FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE!
