Swim Meet information
May 8, 2018
We need everyone to be signing up for summer swim meets, we are still posting entries but please sign up for those that are posted.
Championship Rules to know—ALL BASH swimmers who swam in the winter and competed in 3 Y meets will need to do only 2 Y meets to swim in Summer Championships.
All NEW BASH Swimmers who swam in zero Y meets this past winter will need to swim in 3 Y Meets this summer.
We hope everyone will swim more than the minimum! IF you only do the minimum you only get the minimum results! More is better- more experience, more fun, and more chances to get better.
Be sure to look at all meets, don’t wait until there is only one meet left to get in your YMCA meet. Plan ahead!
