Entries are now open for the 2023 BBD Fall Day After Meet being held November 19, 2023 at Groves High School.

The Day After Meet is run differently than all other meets that BBD attends. Deadline for entry for Round 1 is Sunday November 12 at 8pm.

IMPORTANT: Any swimmer in the meet is required to have a parent volunteer. Please sign up on the SignUp Genius below:

The Fall Day After Meet this year is a YMCA meet and is open to experienced 13 & up swimmers that are attempting to achieve one or more qualifying times for Zones, MAGS, or Y Nationals. This is a great meet for high school girls to capitalize on their taper and for high school boys to get another YMCA meet in (to meet the 3 YMCA meet criteria during the season). If you have any question as to whether your swimmer should attend, please have them talk to their coach at practice or email their coach (all coach emails can be found on the BBD website under ABOUT BBD).
The Day After Meet is a time trial meet; it is run in one session with three rounds of events. There is a short break between each round. Each round offers the same events except that the 1650 and the 1000 are only offered in Round 1. If your swimmer does not achieve their desired qualifying time in Round 1 they will have the opportunity to submit a deck entry for subsequent rounds. Please review the meet packet for the list of events.
Swimmers can swim in any or all rounds, however Round 1 swims are only open to those swimmers that select an entry in their Parent Portal prior to the meet (as described above and in the meet packet). Swimmers that enter via deck entry are limited to Rounds 2 and 3. You may enter Rounds 2 and 3 ahead of time in your Parent Portal as well, but it is not necessary. Once again, the entry deadline for Round 1 events is Sunday, November 12 at 8:00 pm.
Entry fees for any entries done through your Parent Portal will be billed as normal. Any deck entries for Rounds 2 and 3 will require you to bring proper payment (check payable to BBD Boosters, Inc. or cash) for all entries the morning of the meet. Entry fee information is available in the meet packet, attached here.
