ENTRIES OPEN: 2024 BBD Spring Day After Meet

Posted by Birmingham Blue Dolphins on Feb 23 2024 at 06:53AM PST

Entries are now open for the 2024 BBD Spring Day After Meet which will take place on Sunday, March 10, 2024 at Birmingham Groves High School. The Day After Meet is run differently than all other meets that BBD attends. Please read this email and the meet packet, which can be found on the BBD website and below, in their entirety.

The Day After Meet is a USA-S meet (not 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. 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 submit an entry prior to the meet entry deadline (as described above and in the meet packet). Swimmers that enter via deck entry are limited to Rounds 2 and 3.
The entry deadline for Round 1 events is Friday, March 1 at 8 pm.

If your swimmer would like to swim one or more events in round 1, please enter them within the Parent Portal, as is usual with all other meets. No need to enter Rounds 2 and 3, as those may be deck entered. Just be sure to send your swimmer with cash/check to the meet. Any events entered in the Parent Portal will be paid through the Active system, as usual.

Of note, please be aware that if the Parent Portal shows a “timeline” for when a round may start, that is NOT applicable for the actual start time other than for Session 1. The meet just keeps moving until all rounds are completed.
