Welcome to the YMCA of Upper Palmetto Rays Electronic Registration platform for our upcoming swim season! We are pleased to offer electronic registration. The process is simple for both new and returning members. You will complete the registration through your own private account which will enable you to easily declare for swim meets, sign up for volunteer jobs, see your children's swim times, watch coach-uploaded videos of your swimmers,  maintain your contact information, access important information, receive team communications, and more.  Note that if you already have an account, you should log in to your existing account before registering.  Also, please do not register your swimmers multiple times. Please update all your swimmer's info (t-shirt, etc)

9-7-2021: The following groups are full (Email [email protected] to be added to a wait list)

BAXTER YMCA: All levels of Mini Rays are Full

All new swimmers need to register as soon as possible after their placement swim. If your swimmer has not had a placement swim, or if you have questions about their registration, please contact Coach Preston at [email protected] and he will help you.

The registration is not complete until the registration payment is made by credit card directly online at the time of registration.

Attendance at practice is not allowed until you recieve an email from the website confirming your approval. 


As part of the registration process, you will be required to agree to Four separate pages:  Release and Waiver of Legal Liability, Terms and Conditions for Participation, COVID Waiver Form and Volunteer Contract.  You can download a printable copy of these pages by clicking the link for a "printable copy" as you go through the registration screens.  You will also be able to access them under the Member's Page on the website.

Three things to remember during this process:

1.YMCA of Upper Palmetto Membership must be current and active for your swimmer or family for your swimmer to be a part of the Rays Swim Team. This Membership must be active by the first practice in September of 2021 and be active during your swimmers entire time with the team. Your swimmer must have a YMCA of Upper Palmetto specific membership, No nationwide memberships accepted for swim team participation. Swimmers are required to scan their membership card at all facilities to get into practice. 

2. YMCA Membership is a separate form/draft that is not included in this online process. It must be completed at the front desk of the Rock Hill Aquatics Center or your home YMCA branch. You can start your membership at any of the YMCA of Upper Palmetto locations or online at link. The YMCA joining fee of $100 is waived if you are joining the swim team.

3. The monthly draft for the swim team is separate from the monthly draft for your YMCA membership. The swim team draft runs through this website and must be set up on the website. Sign into the website; click on "My Account" and under "My Account" is "Setup Autopay." On this screen you can add a credit card or checking account to pay your monthly fees by electronic draft. The only option for payment of your athletes training fees is online through autodraft on swimrays.com. 

We look forward to having you join the YMCA of Upper Palmetto Rays and are excited for another great season!
