What You Need to Know

The Black Horse Run (BHR) Racers is a summer league recreational swim team for swimmers ages 4-18. We fill our roster first with BHR residents and if space is available, which it normally is, we allow non-residents to join as well. Participating on the swim team is not only a great way for children to improve their swimming skill, but a great place to make new friends and pass some of the summer away. 

Eligibility

All children must be at least 4 years of age and be able to swim independently in the water. Developmental swimmers, swimmers that cannot swim the length of the pool on their own yet, will be allowed. Children must be comfortable swimming around in the water on their own and are able to put their face in the water, but they do not have to swim the length of the pool yet. Depending on your child's comfort level you may be asked to purchase a flotation device to assist your child's learning process. Swim team participation is not a substitution for swim lessons. They will learn strokes but should be comfortable in the water before starting.

Registration

2020 registration begins on March 15th and will close April 12th. Register for the BHR team by clicking the Registration tab.

The BHR resident rate is $115 for the first child; each additional sibling is $105. BHR HOA dues must be paid in order for BHR residents to register swimmers for the team! Non-resident rate is $135 for the first child, each additional sibling is $125.

Practices and Meets 

Check out meet and practice schedules on the website. Meet participation is mandatory to participate on the team. We know you may not be able to be at them all but we sure hope you will try. To attend Champs you must attend at least two swim meets and have at least one legal time in the strokes you want to swim in at Champs


Non-resident members are allowed at the BHR swim pool during BHR Racer practices, meets, special events and if invited by a BHR resident only.


Parent Responsibilities

IMPORTANT DATE: There will be a meet-and-greet potluck dinner on Sunday, April 26th at 5:00. Swimsuit fittings will take place prior to the potluck, from 4-5pm. We will have new information to pass along so we would like all families, old and new, to plan on attending. More details will follow soon but save the date. 

Every parent MUST volunteer their time and effort (i.e. by bringing concession stand donations and helping to run concessions, other volunteer roles at the swim meets, and/or volunteering to help out at CHAMPS - more information will be given during the potluck).  It takes a lot of parents to pull off a swim meet and its more fun to be a part of the event.

We strongly encourage all parents to 
attend one DSSL training session so that we can have enough officials at our swim meets.  Dates and locations of the training sessions will be coming soon!




We are looking forward to a great season! GO BHR RACERS!
