BLACKHAWK COUNTRY CLUB

2020 FALL SWIM PROGRAMS 

 


 

Blackhawk Country Club (BCC) is pleased to announce the 2020 Fall Swim Program. This program is a competitive swimming program and is intended for intermediate and advanced level swimmers ages 6 and up. This program is not a learn to swim program and all swimmers must be water-safe and able to swim multiple laps in the pool unassisted.  The Fall Swim Program is run by Head Coach and Aquatics Director Sean Quackenbush.

COVID-19:   Groups will remain static and unchanged to the extent possible.  Minor changes to group or lane assignments may occur between sessions 1 and 2, depending on registration.  We will abide by the most current County mandates and requirements (subject to change).  Should County mandates change, look for email communications regarding any impact to the the program.

The Fall program will be broken into four sessions with individual registrations and additional fees for each. There is no pro-rating or credit for missed days.

FALL SWIM MEETS:   Typically, Blackhawk has partnered with the Walnut Creek Aquabears and their USA year-round swimming program for the fall season. This partnership provided access to USA sanctioned swim meets. With the current COVID-19 restrictions USA Swimming is not currently sanctioning meets and we do not anticipate they will. We do, however, expect to have time trials or virtual meets during the program where the swimmers will be able to challenge themselves in races.  Should any changes occur, email notifications will be sent.

 


REGISTRATION PROCESS:

 STEP 1:   BCC Membership Required and membership must remain in good standing for the duration of the program.
