National Black Heritage Swim Meet 2018

2019 National Black Heritage Championship Swim Meet

It’s almost here! Our very favorite swim meet of the year! The swim meet Black Kids Swim calls the ‘Family Reunion of the Black Swim Community’!

The 2019 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.

Please note, both teams and unattached swimmers are welcome to participate.

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.

Typically, several teams in a state or region come together to form a special team just for this event.

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.
