The 17th Annual National Black Heritage Championship Swim Meet is Hosted by the North Carolina Aquablazers Swim Team. The meet will take place in Cary, North Carolina May 25 – 26, 2019 at the Triangle Aquatic Center. Meet registration forms for teams and individual swimmers can be found HERE.
So, if your swimmer is attending without their team, as an unattached swimmer, they can still attend! Swimmers DO NOT have to be members of USA Swimming to participate.
These special teams provide a great opportunity for young Black swimmers to make friends in the community. Would you like for your kid to have the amazing experience of riding the bus to the meet surrounded by kids just like them? Reach out and join a regional team for the meet!! Options include Team DMV for PVS-USA Swimming Members and Maryland Metro.
Highly experienced coaches from across the country come to help their swimmers compete and discover new talent. And, elite swimmers, like Cullen Jones, Cason Wilburn, Sabir Muhammad, Roy Burch and Maritza McClendon stop by to offer encouragement to the next generation of competitive swimmers. Everyone is celebrating being Black and excellent in the sport of competitive swimming.
Most importantly, young Black swimmers have the unique opportunity of being in the majority on deck. Typically, Black swimmers are the ‘only one’ on their team. Thankfully, we have events like the NBHCSM. A welcoming environment where young Black swimmers can showcase their talent and dedication to the sport. The National Black Heritage Championship Swim Meet is an opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues in the Black Swim Community.
The Black Swim Community looks forward to seeing you and your swimmers Memorial Day Weekend in Cary NC for this unique and inspiring event! For information on the meet and to see videos and photos of all the action, follow Black Kids Swim on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
