We will be doing registration for Big Sky State Games different this year. All swimmers should enter through the Big Sky State Games website at I have been in contact with their web administrator and they are trying to make some changes in order to make things a little easier for us to enter. If you have not already registered your swimmer, please hold off until the end of this week or the beginning of next to enter so hopefully those changes will be in place.

You will notice that there will be a place to enter your US ID# (see instructions for US ID below) and team affiliation (BAC) for each event. You will only need to enter this information the first time for each swimmer and then you may leave this blank for subsequent events. If you have indicated your team affiliation as BAC it is not necessary for you to look up your times but can enter "NT" as your time as we will import your swimmer's yard times from our system. It is critical that you enter your team affiliation/US ID in order for your times to be uploaded to the USA swimming database and for your child's times to count toward state qualifying standards.

US ID Instructions (if for some reason your ID is incorrect, we can look it up as long as we know you are registered with our team)

Your US ID consists of the your swimmer's six digit birthdate, followed by the first three digits of your first name, followed by your middle initial, followed by the first four digits of your last name. If your name does not have that amount of digits or there is no middle initial, please replace any missing digits with a star "*". See examples below:

For example:

If your name is Jessica Ann Thompson with a birthdate of 04/16/2001 - your ID would be 041601JESATHOM

If you name is Jo Ann Wu with a birthday of 11/5/1998 - your ID would be 110598JO*AWU**

If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call.
