2020 CMY Fall "Return to the Water" Program Information and Registration

Kristopher Shifler


The Chambersburg Memorial YMCA offers a yearly program fee option. Our program year runs from September 1 through August 31. The annual bundle includes the Fall/Winter Short-Course, Spring Stroke Clinic, and Summer Long-Course Seasons as well as morning practices and dry land/strength and conditioning training if it applies to your training group. With this annual bundle, you may spread out the program fee payment over 7 months. (Payment to be made at the time of registration, October, November, December, January, February, March).

**** Please note the program change due to Covid-19.  Due to Covid-19, we will offer a program fee that begins in September and concludes November 14.  This fall program fee is a discounted fee that reflects decreased pool time due to Covid-19 restrictions and capacity guidelines set forth by the State of Pennsylvania, YMCA and USA Swimming.  Should the maximum capacity guidelines change allowing us to resume regular training times and capacity limits are removed, we will adjust the program fee structure to reflect the annual program cost.  

All athletes must have an active credit card on file with both the YMCA and the CYCAPA at all times the athlete is training at the Chambersburg Memorial YMCA. This is to collect annual registration and meet fees. 

After your swimmer has been assigned to a training group, you will then REGISTER for the swim team program at the Member Service Desk at the YMCA. After registration is complete, you will receive an account from TEAMUNIFY.  This is associated with your CYCAPA registration and allows for you to have direct access to team billing and information associated with the team.  Once your swimmer’s coach has approved him/her in our system, you will receive a confirmation email with your account and log in information.

**** An email will be sent if your son/daughter is changing training groups.  Otherwise please sign up for the group that they trained with at the completion of the 2019-2020 Winter Short-Course season.  Please note the training group changes below.  

1.  Please complete the YMCA Registration form and bring with you to the YMCA Courtesy Desk.  You will also submit the Bank Draft/Credit Card form at this time.

2.  Please complete the CMY Athlete Registration form and submit to Coach Matthew Ellis or Holly Caltrider.  This does not get turned into the YMCA.  These are separate forms.  Please also include (staple) a copy of the Bank Draft/Credit Card form to your CMY Athlete Registration form.   


FALL 2020 Return to the Water Program Plan

We have renamed our training groups.  Please see the previous training group name in parenthesis beside the new training group name.  

****** Beginning in September through November 14, the training group name with practice times is listed.  We have also included the program fee cost for that timeframe.  Adjustments to the program fee will occur once we are able to resume with our regular training group times.  

Due to Covid-19, we are only permitted to have 25 people in an indoor venue.  This includes athletes, coaches, and lifeguard on duty.  Therefore we have split the training groups in half into two groups within the training group structure.  Each training group has a cap of 20 athletes with the exception of Level 4.  We are able to accommodate 30 athletes in the Level 4 training group.  

If your athlete has a preference to either group 1 or group 2 (please see start times) within your training group, please send me an email at [email protected].  Otherwise, your athlete will be assigned a group.  


We place our swimmers in the group we feel will have the greatest benefit and the most positive impact on each athlete. For this reason, we do not allow swimmers to join other group practices. We understand practices will be missed due to other activities, busy schedules, and vacations, but please respect our best efforts to maintain the integrity of each group. Proper placement in a training group and moving from one training group to another is always at coach discretion.

**Please note: the Level 1 and 2 groups are our developmental groups for swimmers ages 6-10. Our goal is to categorize our training groups by age, attendance, and ability. If your child is new to competitive swimming, they may be placed in a development group until their skills match their peers.
