AMFY is dual-registered to compete in both YMCA of the USA meets and USA Swimming meets. Our team's primary focus is competition in YMCA meets. These are closed-competition meets with other YMCA teams. All AMFY swimmers are expected to participate in YMCA meets with our team. Your team dues cover all aspects of registration, but do not include meet fees for the actual meets.
In addition to YMCA meets, we also compete in meets run by USA Swimming teams and organizations. USA Swimming is the primary governing body for swimming in the country. We typically select 2-3 meets each season that offer a unique aspect or competition to aid in our competitive development. Our team's participation is geared towards swimmers who routinely have multiple AA cut times each season. No one is required to participate in USA meets, but all AMFY swimmers are welcome to participate if they pay registration fees.
AMFY'S USA SWIMMING REGISTRATION FEES:
Annual: $150 per swimmer
Seasonal: $90 per swimmer (either October to March, or April to August)
These fees are in addition to regular team dues. Registration fees go towards the actual cost of registering the swimmer with USA Swimming plus help defray the costs for our team's USA Swimming registration costs and coaches expenses at USA meets. Meet fees for the individual meets are in addition to any registration fees. Please note we cannot "upgrade" a swimmer from a Seasonal to an Annual membership.
