2021-2022 YNWL Team Registration


Welcome to the YMCA of NORTHWEST LOUISIANA - BOLTS SWIM TEAM Electronic Registration platform. The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you easily declare for swim meets, sign-up for jobs, see your children's swim times histories, maintain your own contact information, and see all billing details.

NEW for 2021-2022 - All Team Registration and Billing will be done through this website
YMCA Membership setup must still take place through the Front Desk: 318-674-9635

Step 1) If not currently a YNWL Team Member, schedule an evaluation with a member of the coaching staff to confirm the proper group placement. Contact John Janszen (13 & Older Swimmers) or Coach Tyler (12 & Under Swimmers) by email or by calling the YMCA (318-674-9635).

Step 2) Please read fully and thoroughly (swimmers and guardians) all information on the website under the 'Policies, Procedures, & FAQ' & 'Billing Policies' pages under the 'Information' tab on the Home Page.
     -During the online registration you will be required to digitally sign, confirming your understanding and agreement to all listed policies.

Step 3) Read the Registration Packet (click) thoroughly

Step 4) If not currently a YMCA member, join the Y. In order to participate on a YMCA swim team, Y-USA requires that all athletes are also full privilege members of their YMCA. Two membership options are available for swim team members. 1) The child can be covered under a Family YMCA membership. 2) Swimmers can join individually as a Student member, giving them access to all programming available at the YMCA of NWLA.
        4a) YMCA Membership signup must be done at the Front Desk.

Step 5) Complete the Online Registration process here. Payment of Registration Fees & any outstanding account balance is required to complete registration. Once successful, you will receive a confirmation email
        5a) If paying any portion by check, please make payment out to "YMCA Of Northwest Louisiana" & deliver to John Janszen or Tyler Lloyd at the BHP Billiton YMCA, 3455 Knight Street, Shreveport, LA 71105
               5a1) DO NOT ask the Front Desk to process payments. Only Coach John and Coach Tyler have the ability to process Swim Team payments at the Y
        5b) Payment must received for accounts to be activated
        5c) Swimmers may not begin practices with a Past Due Balance

Step 6) If your child is transferring from another USA swim team (registered within the last 12 months), please include the USA Swimming Transfer form. The Team will pay the fee.

We look forward to having you join the YNWL BOLTS SWIM TEAM and are excited for a great season!
