Hi Jayson! I am looking for tips on hair care maintenance. There is conflicting information online, and not much information coming from stylists or hair care professionals. Caps are okay, but tough to find a good one (like goggles that fit right, but that's another story! LOL) If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Do you wear a cap? I wear my hair in a natural hairstyle. Thanks for asking.
Hi Jayson, Thanks for the welcome. I was doing a search online via the search engine zapmeta, using the following terms: "(swim OR swimming) and (black OR African) hair and (natural OR relaxed)." The site was listed several pages into the results, but I don't mind going to the 10 th page of a long list. I also joined because I believe very strongly in the group's mission, and hope to network with others as well. I have invited my instructor, Melon Dash, founder of the Miracle Swimming Institute. Her web site is http://www.conquerfear.com.
Hi jayson, good to meet you. The site was recommended to me by Rebecca Wear Robinson.
Were working together to educate the world on drowning prevention and I'm trying to do my bit by bringing SwimFin to every bodies attention.
Keep up the great work.
I attended the DC meet in Feb. and another coach "Candess Tucker" told me about this group. I also bought 2 t-shirts and was told to come back later for my change and never got it. It's ok! I'm looking forward in being an active member of this community.
I heard about your program through OutdoorAfro.com...where I provide content from time to time.
BTW, I'm not only looking for Adventurers that want a multicultural swim experience at camp, but I am always on the lookout for female lifeguards for my program as well....preferably in California...and I do aim for diversity. Kindly let me know how I can do some outreach. =)
I just found you while looking for the results of the Annual Black History Meet. My daughter ( Ophe'lie Loblack- 10) swims for RMSC and participated. She got 3rd place High Point (10 and under). I try to follow a lot of the black swimmers. It is certainly nice to connect here. I like the forum and I think I will spend some time catching up on the blogs. I also will definitely participate in any capacity here.
We've got some local meets coming up. But the next big thing is in North Carolina Memorial Day Weekend. This is our first year as members of USA Swimming so we are afforded the opportunity to travel now. I don't know all the details yet, but I'm looking forward to that meet. Do you know any particulars?
Hi My son's team, Metro Boys and Girls Club of New York, just competed this weekend in the Black History meet. This was our first year and I had a FANTASTIC time. I was in awe of how many of our children performed so well. A couple of parents from our team and I stopped by your table Saturday.
