USA Swimming Registration

USA swimming has put out a new registration system. I know most of you are used to the team registering the athletes but that will no longer be happening. You're receiving this email from Yucaipa Swim Team team to invite you to register for a USA Swimming Membership. In addition to being a member of Yucaipa Swim Team, members must also register with USA Swimming. You can find your NEW member ID on your OnDeck app or under your account under swimmer ID. Please use the link below to register online:

Practice Arrival and Pick up

This is just a reminder that  ALL  athletes should arrive a minimum of 10 minutes before the start of practice. This allows time for check in and getting ready to get in so we can get in on time. All pick-ups need to  arrive 10 minutes before the end of practice to ensure an on time pick-up. Any swimmer that has not been picked up within 10 minutes of the end of scheduled practice time will be billed $50 per half hour or any part thereof. In the event of an emergency, please contact our team administrator or the head coach to let us know.


Gear Requirements 

Just a reminder that from Gold group and up to Senior you need to have the following gear. Finis Agility paddles, Arena PowerPro fins, and a snorkel, recommended the Speedo bullet head but it is your preference. You can find all of these on our CAS swim shop, swim outlet, or Amazon.
