17th Annual Black Heritage Swimming Championships | May 25-26 - Cary, NC
This year Team DMV-PV will travel to Cary, NC once again to compete at the 17th National Black Heritage swim meet hosted by the North Carolina Aqua Blazers. DC Wave is one of Potomac Valley's most diverse teams and the founding team of Team DMV, and we are once again inviting DC Wave swimmers, coaches, and families to be apart of Team DMV!
The DC Wave Booster Club will support any DC Wave athletes/families that decide to join Team DMV by providing a DC Wave bus to travel to North Carolina, and a block of rooms at a nearby hotel for DC Wave families to reserve for the trip. For room and bus information please contact Kisha Clark.
The trip dates are May 24-26. There will be one Team DMV practice, where swimmers, coaches, and parents will all have an opportunity to meet each other before the swim meet. The time, date and location will be announced once all applications have been received. Space on the team for athletes is limited so please have your interested athletes fill out the application ASAP!
Registration will close on April 5th, 2019 or when all spaces have been filled! After registration closes, you will receive an email within 48 hours with instructions on how to submit your deposit. Space on the team won't be secured until the travel coordinators receive the payments.
About Team DMV
DC Wave has long supported the Black Heritage Swim Meet in North Carolina. Our team is one of the few that have attended the meet since it's inception. The meet has always been a fun way to cap off the indoor season and provide all of our swimmers with an opportunity to participate in a travel swim meet. As the success of the meet grew, DC Wave leadership sought to share this wonderful experience with the rest of Potomac Valley by putting together a travel team that displays the wonderful talent and diversity in our own community, and as a result Team DMV was born!
Team DMV was created with the purpose of supporting and encouraging diversity in the sport of swimming by connecting our community of swimmers, coaches, and parents to other multicultural swimming communities across the nation. Team DMV-PV Travel Team is open to all PVS-USA Swimming members. The team travels to Cary, NC each Memorial Day weekend to compete in the Annual Black Heritage Swim Meet.
