Swimmers new to Tide Swim Team must first be evaluated by a coach prior to registration. STOP NOW IF YOUR SWIMMER HAS NOT BEEN EVALUATED FOR TIDE SWIM TEAM.

WHEN YOU REGISTER BE SURE TO SELECT THE PROPER REGISTRATION GROUP AND PRACTICE LOCATION. If you are a returning member, last season's practice location may fill in automatically. You need to update it if you have moved locations. FINAL GROUP COMPOSITION AND TOTAL ENROLLMENT MAY BE ADJUSTED AT THE COACHING STAFF'S DISCRETION. If a group reaches capacity, you will be notified and offered a spot on a waiting list.




Welcome to registration for our 2021-2022 swim season! Please read carefully all documents that are presented during the online registration process and complete all of the requested information. Agreement 1 is the 2021-2022 Swimmer Contract. Please read it carefully.

The following fees are collected during the registration process. TIDE Registration Fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.

  • USA Swimming registration ($83 for all groups except Novice and Senior Bronze. Novice and Senior Bronze will pay $20 for a Flex membership) 
  • Safe4Athletes membership fee ($5)
  • TIDE registration fee ($100 annually for year round; $35 per session for Novice and Senior Bronze) 

All members are required to participate in autopay for payment of their monthly TIDE invoices. Dues for year round swimmers are incurred when you register and are charged in 10 equal installments beginning September 1, 2021. The final installment payment will be charged on June 1, 2022. Swimmers registered for Developmental Silver or Developmental Gold AT NORFOLK ACADEMY will be charged a monthly facility fee of $40, with the first month's payment collected during registration.

All members of Tide Swim Team must also be members of the YMCA of South Hampton Roads except for swimmers who are registered in Developmental Silver or Developmental Gold at Norfolk Academy.

For RETURNING MEMBERS: If you have a balance on your TIDE account it will be charged with your TIDE registration fees when you complete the registration process. This will assure that we collect all outstanding obligations before the end of our 2020-2021 fiscal year. 

For NEW MEMBERS: After your registration is approved you'll get access to your own private Team Unify website account that will enable you to easily declare for swim meets, sign-up for meet work shifts, see your children's swim times, maintain your contact information, view your invoices and TIDE account history, and view members only content on the TIDE website.

Your registration payment receipt tells you that you completed the process successfully. Your account will be "approved" before the September 1 automatic billing date.

We are excited that you will be joining us for what promises to be a fantastic year!
