Welcome to the Boise YMCA Swim Team Electronic New Swimmer Registration platform!  We are pleased to not only offer electronic registration but also electronic payment processing for your registration and monthly dues.

Team and USA Swimming Registration instructions can be found below for New Swimmers, including those who are in need of financial assistance (Outreach), and Transfers.  The registration process will take about 15 minutes.  Please read each screen carefully so you understand the financial and time commitments.
 

NEW SWIMMERS:

PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER FOR THE TEAM UNTIL AFTER YOU HAVE TRIED OUT AND HAVE ATTENDED A FEW PRACTICES
AS REGISTRATION FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET TRIED OUT, PLEASE TO TO THE HOME PAGE AND CLICK ON THE TRYOUT INFORMATION BUTTON.

Information on fees associated with joining the team which include Monthly Dues, Administrative, Meet, and Program Fees, can be found on the TeamInfo/Fees link.  A summary of all fees charged throughout the year can be found HERE.

The Boise Y Swim Team is a YMCA/USA Swim Team.  Therefore, all of our swimmers must be members of the Y and of USA Swimming.  Please go to the front desk of any Y to sign up for a Y membership.  All other swim team related fees cannot be paid at the Y but must be paid directly to the swim team.

USA SWIMMING MEMBERSHIP:
There are 3 types of USA Swimming memberships.  All swimmers must be USA Swimming members in order to practice/compete with the team.  The 3 types are as follows:

YOU MUST PAY FOR ONE TYPE OF USA SWIMMING MEMBERSHIP WHEN CHECKING OUT OF THE REGISTRATION SYSTEM!!!!!

  • The 2020 PREMIUM membership is $72 and is an annual membership which will expire December 31, 2020.  Swimmers with a Premium membership can compete at as many meets as they wish and at any competition level.
  • The 2020 FLEX membership is $20 and is limited to swimmers joining the Sockeye, Bronze, or High School groups.  This membership allows swimmers to participate in only two (2) sanctioned swim meets per membership year (from Sept 2019 thru Dec 2020).  Additionally, swimmers with a Flex membership cannot swim in Championship meets.  Swimmers who register with a Flex membership can upgrade to Premium at any time during the year by paying the $52 difference in membership fees.
  • The 2020 OUTREACH membership is geared solely for those in need of financial assistance.  The fee is $7.  If your swimmer received free or reduced hot lunch or is on Medicaid, he/she is probably eligible for the Outreach membership rate.  Proof of need must be provided.  Please read more about this membership below.

BOISE Y REGISTRATION/NEW MEMBER FEE:

  • The Boise Y Swim Team charges all new swimmers a Registration Fee of $35.  This fee must be paid before the Team Admin can activate your account.  It is non-refundable.
  • The fee will be charged during the registration check-out process.

BOISE Y PARENT SERVICE AGREEMENT:
The Boise Y Swim Team requires each family to help the team by working at swim meets or team activities such as the team banquet, team retreat, new member tryouts, etc.

  • Families are asked to work 6 hours every 6 months.  Hours do not carry over from the first half of the year to the second half.
  • Hours not worked will be billed at $50 per unfulfilled hour.  The billing will take place on June 30 and December 31.
  • The Parent Service Agreement should be completed and submitted before leaving the Registration area.

OTHER REQUIRED FEES:
All swimmers and families are charged the following:

  • Monthly dues at a rate based on their practice group.  Please see Financial Commitment Table posted HERE for specific monthly dues rates.  Dues are charged at the end of the month for the following month.  As outlined on the fees page, discount is given families with multiple swimmers.
  • The Boise Y Swim Team offers families the same percentage of Financial Assistance for monthly dues as the family is receiving from the YMCA.
  • The Team Admin Fee is a yearly fee charged all members on February 1.  This fee is $48 and pays for all relay fees your swimmer may have throughout the year.  This fee also helps the team cover miscellaneous costs incurred in running the team.
  • Families who pay their monthly bill with a credit card will be charged a 3% banking fee.  Those who pay by ACH, will be charged $1.25 per month.  Checks are also accepted but must be mailed to the Team Admin.
  • In order for our team to meet our yearly budget, we require all members to pay a Program Fee, payable in advance of the coming year.  The Program Fee can be raised by participating in the team?s Aquathon fundraiser and/or Scrip program.  Any portion of the fee not raised will be billed to accounts on December 1.  The fee is prorated for those swimmers who join the team after January 1 and before July 30.
  • Links to information on the Team Admin Fee, Program Fee, Aquathon, and Scrip can be found on the TeamInfo tab on the website.
