ENTRIES OPEN: 2024 11-14 MAGS Championship

by Birmingham Blue Dolphins, 2024-02-26T08:32:22.000-08:00February 26 2024, at 08:32 AM PST

Entries are now open for the 2024 11-14 Michigan Swimming Age Group Championship Meet (MAGS) that is being held March 15-17, 2024 at the Holland Aquatic Center in Holland, MI. Keep in mind, this is the SAME WEEKEND as Y Zones; your child will only attend one of these meets if qualified for both. Please do not enter both. For this meet, as it is a USA-S meet, your child’s age is determined by their age on March 15, 2024 for qualifying purposes. Times will be updated following Y States prior to entry deadline, and all new qualifiers will have entries available in the Parent Portal as soon as possible. Any new qualifiers at the Day After Meet will need to email to notify of the new qualified event and desire to enter.

If you have any questions about whether your child should attend YMCA Zones vs 11-14 MAGS, please direct those questions to their age group coach. All coach emails are available on the BBD website under ABOUT BBD.

For this meet, your parent portal will allow selecting your child’s events (different from years prior). However, your child’s entries may be changed by their coach after the entry closes to best suit the needs of the team for scoring. If this occurs, a coach will notify your swimmer directly.
Deadline for entry is Wednesday, March 6, 2024 at 8pm.

BONUS EVENTS are allowed at this meet for any swimmers qualified in fewer than 4 events for the entire meet (NOT per day). Please review the meet packet for Bonus swim guidelines. A swimmer may ONLY enter 50s and 100s as Bonus swims.

Please review the meet packet below in full, as there are many important details in there. MAGS qualifying times may be found on the BBD website, on your child’s BBD bag tag and on their motivational sheets that your child was provided earlier in the season.
