'Save the Dates' and Registration Reminders

Posted by Birmingham Blue Dolphins on Sep 26 2022 at 08:18AM PDT

Parent Social – Save the Date
Please save the date for a Parent Social at Birmingham Country Club on Friday, October 14th at 6:00. This is always a fun evening, and an opportunity to mingle with other BBD parents and some of our coaches. More information will be provided closer to the date.

USA Swimming SWIMS 3.0 Registration
Please refer to the email sent on September 21st regarding the registration process for USA Swimming SWIMS 3.0. This is required of all BBD swimmers. We apologize for any difficulties you are having with this system. We encourage all parents to watch the video links provided prior to attempting the registration, and direct any issues to the Michigan Swimming email address provided.

There is a step in the USA Swimming registration that seems to be creating an issue for our parents.

Before registering your swimmer, you need to first create a parent account with USA Swimming. Instructions on how to do this are provided if you follow the link provided and click on the “Log In” button on the first screen. Note: If you are a BBD coach or board member, you should already have an existing USA swimming account, and do not need to create a parent account.

Here is the link again!

Once you create the parent account, then you need to use the registration link again to register your athletes. It will ask you if this is for them or for someone else. You will choose someone else.

We apologize that this process can be confusing, and for an issues you are experiencing.

BBD Fall Festival – October 22nd and 23rd @ Lake Orion High School
Entries for the BBD Fall Festival and volunteer registration will be opening soon. Please stay tuned for emails! This is the first YMCA meet of the season, and is hosted by our team. We expect our swimmers to participate, and for parents to volunteer. Practice will not be held on the days of this meet.

Thank you!
