Growing the Black Kids Swim Community

We want to see more Black swimmers.  We want more Black people to have the life-saving skill of swimming, and to have access to the educational and professional opportunities available through competitive swimming.

We believe that if we can grow the Black Kids Swim community we will be able to share the benefits of swimming with more African Americans and connect more parents with a supportive community of experienced Black swimmers and swim parents.  If we can do this, we believe we will increase Black participation in the sport and, in the process, change the face of competitive swimming.

Our goal is to reach 1,000 Facebook fans by Jan 1, 2017 and 4,500 Facebook fans by July 30, 2017.  If we can reach both of our ambitious goals we will have taken a big first step in encouraging more Black kids to swim and paving the way for more elite Black swimmers to serve as role models for the swimmers of tomorrow.

We need your support.  Do you want to help grow the Black Kids Swim community?

Visit our Facebook page and share a photo of your swimmer, a few words on why they love the sport and things you do to be a supportive swim parent.

EVERY DAY we will mail a BKS gift to the family with the best post.  The competition begins Today Dec 16 and ends on Jan 1.
