Registration is open! Click on the big red ‘Register’ button to register. The deadline for ordering merchandise from our shop has passed so that we’re able to order and have merchandise available on the first day of class. There will be some merchandise available at Monday registration and the Friday night picnics. (t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, water bottles and more)

Before you begin
-Child must be able to swim.
-Returning students refer to 2017 Placement List.
-New students refer to class descriptions to choose the best class for your child.
-You can register for more than one session.
-Classes are for one week, either AM or PM.
-Try to register siblings at the same time. If you register two siblings at the same time, we pay one processing fee. If you register them in a separate login, we pay two fees. This will help us keep costs down.
-Ordering NYSS merchandise is a separate process. Merchandise will be delivered on the first day of class.
-See notes below for information on classes that are full. If you try to register for a full class, you’ll be waitlisted. Sailors often switch sessions so you may get it later on.
-IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY COMPLETE A REGISTRATION and you’ve placed your child in the wrong class or you just need to make a switch later on, call Shelley at (313) 942-9390. It’s very easy on our end to switch to a different class. If you have any problems registering, call Shelley.
