Fees, Fundraising and Jobs for 2017

The Ygnacio Wood Swim Team is part of the Ygnacio Wood Swim Club.  All team members are members of the club, with varying benefits.

In 2017, we are making changes to our fee and job structure. All members, new and old are encouraged to read and understand. If you have any questions, please reach out to Gareth Patterson at prez@ywst.org or Garrett Shelley at dir@ywst.org .

Club Membership & Jobs

Club memberships are required to use the pool facilities for any reason.  Many families use this excellent community resource for fun, exercise or just a place to hang out.  Many other families are members in our 47-year old  swim team.

2017 Change – Starting in 2017 season, we will see the return of the gate-keeper job.  In order to provide additional security and safety at our pool, and to ensure only members are using the facilities, we require most members to provide  gate-keeping duties.
