Signup Genius Link For 9/12-9/15

The swim team trial is for swimmers wanting to determine whether or not they would like to join the Fox Cities YMCA Swim Team (FCYST). It will run from September 12-22, 2022 out of the Buchanan Pool at the Appleton YMCA.  

This Fall we will be running a two week trial period for new swimmers. Athletes looking to take part in this trial should show up at the Appleton YMCA Buchanan Pool at 6:00p on September 12-15. Practices will be 6:15-7:15p each night. 

All swimmers who sign in during week one will receive a practice group and time to be at practices for week two on September 19-22.  

We will still accept new athletes throughout the season once this trial period is over but will not continue running the trial option. Athletes should contact the Swim Team Office for more information.

Please read the Concussion Information, found at the link above and print out, fill in the Swim Team Trial & Concussion Form, found at the link above, prior to the first practice. Please bring them with you to your team trial and confirm your time slot with Coach John or Coach Matt.

 On the days of your trial, please have your swimmer arrive at the practice about 5-10 minutes early to introduce your swimmer to the coaches on deck. Once your swimmer has been introduced to the coaches we will ask that you sit to the side on the bleachers or off the pool deck. There will be several team parents available to answer questions during the practices. Coach John will be available for questions after the practices have finished.  


Thank you to everyone who has been patient as we try to respond to incoming swimmers. We have had some scheduling issues that have limited our communication over the last few weeks.
