Description

2020 Mini HOX Summer Program

Program Dates:  June 9 - July 23


PROGRAM INFORMATION

Summer Mini HOX exposes children to the fun and excitement of participating in a recreational swim team setting with the potential to participate on the HOX Swim Team in the coming year or two.  The program is ideal for children who enjoy the water but may find it challenging to swim the full length of a 25 yard competition pool.  As such, Junior Coaches will be in the water during practice.  Stroke technique is taught 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.   

If you ar unsure if this program is appropriate for your child, Coach Sean evaluates all swimmers and makes recommendations for the appropriate program, session or private lesson.  

The Mini HOX Liaison is Megan Acharya.  Please feel free to email her at:  megan.acharya@gmail.com with any questions or concerns you may have as they relate to Mini HOX.

NEXT STEPS

New Swimmers:  If you are a current Blackhawk Country member but new to Mini HOX or unsure if your child is ready for Mini HOX, please email the Registrar, Helen Sweet, and she can assist in coordinating the mandatory evaluation with Coach Nikki.

Returning Mini HOX from 2019:  Upon submitting the online registration, families will either receive a confirmation email from the Registrar with login instructions, or an email requesting that the swimmer is required to attend a one-on-one in water observation with Coach Sean. This will allow Sean to place each swimmer into a group to best fits their current development. One-on-one sessions will be about 5-10 minutes in duration. Please note that these observations are not "try outs." It is simply an effort to ensure swimmers are placed in groups with swimmers of similar abilities.  Space is limited -  Click Here - to register.
