Welcome to the Springfield YMCA Swim Team Electronic Registration platform for our upcoming Long Course swim season! You can now register your swimmers online at any time during the day. Families who registered in the fall with the Year Around Montly billing will automatically be added to the Long Course Roster.

Billing and Roster Groups

For the Long Course season we will have Five different Billing groups.

Beginner, Age Group, Advanced Age Group, Senior Prep, and Senior

Roster Groups for the Long Course season will be expected to be simlar to the roster groups of the Short Course season, with changes made for swimmers aging up as appropriate. We will not plan on any different group designations (Blue/Purple) for groups, but everyone should expect lane assignments under the current guidance from USA Swimming while we are still dealing with the COVID-19 Pandemic. We will not finalize roster groups until the registration process is complete, though if you have an athlete who has aged up a group and would like to ask you may feel free to do so. 

Payment Options and Schedules

The Long Course Season will run May 5th through July 30th. May will be billed monthly as a continuation of the short course season with the same monthly fee. You can choose to pay for June/July as monthly installments or 1 payment in June for the entire summer. You will select either Long Course Monthly or Long Course Season (one payment) for June/July Billing. Depending on the size of the team, there may be a consolodation of groups in which case some athletes may have practice days of the week altered. 

The practice schedules for May will be slightly different, though the same for most groups. The major adjustment will be moving the Beginner group to Monday/Wednesday instead of Tuesday/Thursday. This is being done in an effort to provide more practice time for athletes aging up in our younger age groups. So we will be able to add more of the 11 year olds into the Advanced Age Group and provide more time for the Beginner athletes on Monday/Wednesday as many are aging up over the next several months. Here is a look at that proposed schedule. 

There will be an adjustment to the schedule come the first Week of June. That is not finalized due to dpendence on registration numbers. Here are the primary changes to expect...

  • Morning Practice offerings a few times per week for Senior and Senior Prep Groups. Advanced Age Group morning practice offerings dependent on participant numbers and staffing.
  • Earlier practice start times in the afternoons. Earliest groups at 3:00 PM or 3:30 PM and youngest groups done by 8:00 PM
  • Depending on USA Swimming Guidelines (and IDPH) we will likely shift our dryland to either the pool deck or outside during the summer. Other YMCA programming will be taking place in the Gym over the course of the summer so unless weather plays a factor I would like to get athletes outside for dryland in the afternoons/evenings as much as we can.
  • Fees adjusted $5 to $10 per month dependent on additional program time offered.  

 

No payment needs to be collected during the registration process. Fees for Long Course season will begin the 1st of May. 

We look forward to having you join the Springfield YMCA Swim Team and are excited for another great season!
