  • You must wear the green wristband that will be handed to you  
  • You must CHECK-OUT with the registration personal upon exiting the water
  • You must return your wristband to the registration table at the end of the swim
  • Only after you have completed these steps can you dress, talk to other fellow swimmers or take off for a run/bike ride 

We cannot re-iterate how important it is for everyone involved in these swims to follow the rules 100%.  When we ask that you remember to check in and out, we mean it.... even if you are in a rush, even if you are cold, hungry and tired, even if you swim every session and we know you by name and joke with you every day you still must take the time to check out and make sure we have recorded the information on the attendance sheet.  Shouting your name as you walk by is not enough for check out.  The survival of our program is riding on your responsibility to follow these instructions.  Please help us keep the BAM open water swims alive!
