by Birmingham Blue Dolphins, 2021-05-08T11:31:10.000-07:00May 08 2021, at 11:31 AM PDT

It’s time already to jump on in to the summer season for BBD!!!

We have opened sign up for the first long course meet of the 2021 summer swim season. Even though long course/summer swimming registration has not occurred yet, entries for this meet need to be completed ASAP as they are due by Monday morning with the host team. So, this is a VERY QUICK turnaround. Deadline for entry is tomorrow evening Sunday May 9, 2021 at 8pm.

We are planning to attend the Big Red Challenge Open Invitational at Holland Community Aquatic Center in Holland, MI from June 4-6, 2021. This meet is open to 11 and up swimmers who plan to sign up and participate in the BBD long course/summer season this summer. This meet is timed finals for 11-12 swimmers and prelims/finals for the 13 and up swimmers. It will be in long course 50 meter format.

Please review the meet packet below and sign your swimmer up ASAP, if interested. To sign your swimmer up, you have access through the Parent Portal. Please be sure that your credit card on file in your account is also up to date and selected as the Primary Payment Method. Thank you, in advance for double checking this.

If you have any questions, please email Lisa Helmick at

Further registration info for the long course/summer BBD season will be forthcoming as soon as it is available.
