The YMCA will be taking registrations and payment, however PSA also requires all swimming participants to have an account on the PSA website. Ensure a participant form is filled out for the person attending the program. A membership is not required if swimming is the only PSA program you are registered in.
There are 2 possible ways to register:
1. Register in person. Show up approximately an hour early for your program on the first day and register at the front desk. You will need a photo ID to do this. Please be prepared to make payment. If you plan to register in person we would still appreciate a heads up that you are planning to register so we can ensure there will be enough volunteers. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Register over the phone. Send an e-mail to email@example.com indicating which program you will be registering in (Beginner or Intermediate) and that you wish to register over the phone. Call YMCA at (780)452-9622 after May 1 and reference your specific course code.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
