by Birmingham Blue Dolphins, 2023-09-21T11:13:33.000-07:00September 21 2023, at 11:13 AM PDT

REMINDER: Entries are now open for the upcoming 2023 OLY Fall Classic being held at Oakland University on October 20-22, 2023.

There are qualifying times for Friday events, but the remainder of the meet has no qualifying times. This is a USA-S meet, not a YMCA meet, therefore it is intended for experienced 9 and up swimmers who have swam at least 3 years of competitive swimming. This meet WILL NOT count towards the required 3 YMCA meets needed throughout the season.

Please be sure to enter your swimmer in their appropriate age group entries. OPEN events are intended for 13&up swimmers, in general.

The entry deadline is Thursday, September 21, 2023 at 8pm. Late entries will be unable to be accepted.

All information regarding the specifics for the meet are attached here in the meet packet, including the qualifying times for the Friday session, which are at the end of the meet packet.

Please include in the email your swimmer’s name, their USA Swimming ID number, as well as the team they most recently swam for.
