Happy Halloween!!

We’ve had a great treat! United States Swimming has recognized BBD as a “Bronze Level Club” for 2023 as part of their Club Excellence program! We are one of four clubs in Michigan to be so honored and the only YMCA team. This comes our way because of the performance of two of our elite athletes: Gus MacDonald and Ethan Schwab. Both Gus and Ethan have grown up in our program. Thank you, gentlemen, for making us look good. In the new year we will have a very cool banner hanging at the Y.

Eleven-twelve year old swimmers have another opportunity to participate in a camera clinic Thursday at Covington if you didn’t get a chance two weeks ago. It is from 5:30-7:30. We still have regular practice. Register at the Sign-Up Genius link here:!/showSignUp/30e0f4ba4a728a4fd0-11121

Because of the enrollment in the Flint Meet, there will be no practices this Sunday. See you at Milford High School!

Some reminders: Please make sure young swimmers have their events on their hand BEFORE arriving at the meet. Pick up any awards before leaving the meet.

Parents, remember to escort your swimmers into and from our venues for safety’s sake.

Thank you to our parents who supplied treats for our swimmers this week. I know they enjoyed the marshmallow treats, the sliders and the doughnuts!

Have a fun and safe Halloween, and don’t forget that all practices tonight are canceled!
