Hi Jayson,

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.

Hi Jayson.  =)  Really happy to be here. 

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.  =)

Best,

Tracey

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. 

 

Thanks for having me.

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.

hi jayson. 

i actually swam for the same YMCA program as shaun when i was growing up in johnstown, pa. he was a few years older than me (i was actually pretty good friends with his sister on the team) and i've been keeping up with his accomplishments through mutual friends. i'm moving to chicago in a few weeks and would love to get involved in usa swimming again so i'm trying to re-connect and learn about making an impact in the swimming community. i highly commend you guys for what you've done for the sport and am inspired by your efforts. keep up the good work and i hope to do my own part someday :)

Thanks. I swam for Morgan State College (now Morgan State University) from 1963 - 1966.

I was CIAA Champion and record holder for the 1500 1965-1966. Also, I won the 400 IM in 1966. I placed 2d in the 500 yd free in 1965. I was the leading scorer for the Morgan State team in 1964,1965, and 1966. I began competitive swimming when I was 10 years old. I swam in several D.C. municipal park meets at Banneker Pool.
