March, 30 2020
Spring Mini HOX (3 Days)




   Monday, April 20 - Thursday, May 28 (3 Days/Week)



This program is ideal for 3 - 6 year old children who enjoy the water but may find it challenging to swim the full length of a 25 yard competition pool.  Children who enjoy the fun and excitement of participating as part of a group while preparing to participate as part of the HOX Swim Team in the coming year or two.   

The Mini HOX Spring Clinic practices are run by Coach  Nikki Palmer.  The coach will be in the water with the Mini HOX swimmers during practice.  They focus on teaching stroke technique in all four competitive strokes:  backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle as well as other fundamental principles of swimming.  Your child should be 3-6 years old by June 15, 2020 and fully potty trained to participate in the Mini HOX program.

IMPORTANTNew for 2020 - BCC Mini HOX Spring Clinic will be open to non-BCC members one time.  After this one time offer, ability to participate in any other swim programs will require a BCC Swim/Fitness membership or above.

If you are new to BCC, new to Mini HOX or unsure if your child is ready, please contact Coach Sean Quackenbush at: to coordinate an observation of your child.  In an effort to find the best fit for each swimmer, the coach reserves the right to make the determination if your child is ready for Mini HOX, refer them to another program and/or make adjustments to their participation.
