Everything you need to know about the National Black Heritage Championship Swim Meet.
This is the Black Swim Community’s Family Reunion - you do not want to miss this meet!
Parents, what do you do when your swimmer wants to quit?
Time to start thinking about summer swim season!
Parents, a ton of families from across the U.S. are asking for summer swim team recommendations. Let’s make sure our kids are in the pool perfecting all four strokes this summer!
What is the city/state and name of a swim team you would recommend for a BKS member?...
Thank you 🙌🏿🏊🏾💙
Thank you to the National Museum of African American History and Culture and Sports Curator Dr. Damion Thomas!!
BKS members from DC, MD, VA and even TX enjoyed a private lecture and tour to learn more about the impressive history of Africans and swimming.
Africans were known as the world’s greatest swimmers and divers prior to the Atlantic slave trade....
It is important for our swimmers to know their history so they can believe in and grow to expect their success in the sport of swimming.

Black History month is right around the corner! Which cap would you prefer for your swimmer?
The Adinkra symbol “Kwatakye Atiko” refers to the hairstyle worn by the Asante warrior Kwatakye. It symbolizes bravery, valor, and fearlessness.
Kwatakye Atiko is paired with the BKS logo “The Reach” which symbolizes the strength and achievement of Black children swimming on top of the water.
Congrats 🙌🏿 to Kris Lawson of Nations Capital Swim Club (NCAP). He showed out in the Arizona Dual Meet Championship winning 11 out of 11 races and setting FOUR meet records. 🔥🔥🔥🔥
