It is almost summer, and this means the beginning of the GMST competitive swim season!

We should have registration and Open House details available shortly. Here is what you can expect:

Registration fees will be about $85 for age group swimmers and $60 for developmental swimmers.
In addition to the above fees, non-Greenbelt residents will have to purchase a Greenbelt Aquatic and Fitness Center (GAFC) membership. The rates are:
$94 Youth/$118 Young Adult (5/28 – 7/31 ONLY). Members can use the pool at no additional cost during this period.
All parents are required to volunteer their time in some way or the other during the course of the season. It is an important part of having a great team that functions well! Those who do not meet the volunteer requirement by the end of the season will incur a $75 charge. Read more about volunteer opportunities here
