Important Reminders and Updates

Posted by Birmingham Blue Dolphins on Sep 07 2022 at 09:45AM PDT

As we get closer to the start of our regular season, we have few important reminders and updates. We are excited to get the season started, and welcome both new and returning swimmers back to the pool!

Phase 2 Registration Reminder

We still have some families who have yet to complete Phase 2 of registration. It is very important that you complete this ASAP! This is a further step beyond being a member of the YMCA, as you must pay your BBD Team and Age Group Fees. The initial payment made to BBD Boosters in Phase 1 was a smaller Activity Fee.

All families who have completed Phase 2 should have received a confirmation email/receipt following their purchase from the “YMCA of Metropolitan Detroit” Please check your junk folders if you feel you did not receive a confirmation and believe you completed the process. If you have any concerns or questions about Phase 2 of registration, please email or call the YMCA at (248) 644-9036. Please do not send an email to, as the BBD Boosters parent board members do NOT have access to the YMCA registration system.

If you have not completed Phase 2, here is the link one more time.

A YMCA membership is ALSO required in order to register for BBD Swim Team 2022-2023. If your membership is not currently active, the registration link provided will sell a Youth Membership of $30/month automatically. If you wish to activate a family membership, please sign up here prior to registration. WAITLISTED SWIMMERS SHOULD NOT COMPLETE PHASE 2 UNTIL THEY HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED THERE IS A SPACE FOR THEM AS IT WILL CAUSE SIGNIFICANT ADMINISTRATIVE ISSUES. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION!


We are in the process of updating our website with the latest season information. Please be sure to read our emails in their entirety, as this is the primary tool we will use to communicate with parents. Once the season begins, we ask that you check the website regularly. There is a wealth of information here that can be used to answer many FAQS. Our volunteer parent board members put a great deal of time and effort into our regular team communication and website updates, so we kindly ask that you refer to these before sending an email with a question. If you need to speak with a coach, their email addresses are listed on our website under the “About BBD” tab. We appreciate your support and cooperation!

2022-23 Meet Schedule (Tentative):

A tentative meet schedule for the season has been updated on the website under the “Meets” tab. Some information is still TBD, and additional USS meets for experienced swimmers may be added. Our first YMCA meet of the season will be the BBD Fall Festival at Lake Orion High School, October 22nd-23rd. Further information including event entry will be provided closer to the date. Since this meet is being hosted by our team, we do expect our swimmers to participate, and for parents to volunteer. As a reminder, all swimmers on our team must complete three YMCA meets during the regular season. Participation in both days of the BBD Fall Festival will count as TWO meets.

Practice Schedule

Our practices for the 2022-23 season will begin the week of September 19th. The practice schedule for the season can be found in the “Practice Info” section of this site.

It’s going to be a great season!

Best regards,

BBD Boosters Parent Board and Coaches
