FALL SWIM MEET INFORMATION
Meets are very important for evaluating improvement and providing motivation. Although each meet is optional, swimmers should compete at as many of the scheduled meets as possible. Fall Swim Meets are different from Summer Rec Meets in a few ways.
- To participate in fall swim meets: You must register with USA Swim (see directions below).
- You must register for every swim meet you will attend and you must choose your own events. Your swimmer will have access to many events he or she does not have in summer rec swim.
- When our team attends meets we must provide timers. We require each attending family to volunteer for one timing shift - usually 1.5 to 2 hours.
How to Register for USA Swim
To register with USA Swim, you must be affiliated with a USA Swim Team. The Blackhawk Swim Team partners with the Walnut Creek Aquabears (WCAB) for Fall Swim Meets. This is the team you will enter as your team when you register for USA Swim.
To register with USA swim, go to www.pacswim.org. Membership forms will be available in late August or early September. Once membership registration is open, complete the registration form and submit this along with your payment to the address on the form.
If you are new to the fall swim meet entry process, please see the link below to familiarize yourself with registering for fall swim meets: https://sites.google.com/site/omehelp/how-to-for-parents-and-swimmers. If you do not yet have a swimmer ID from Pacific Swimming (because your 2019-2020 USA Fall Swim Registration is in process) you should still be able to register for the meet by indicating that your ID is pending.
You must be a registered Fall swim team member in order to practice with the team; there are no exceptions.
