Welcome to the 2019 Summer HOX & Mini HOX Swim Registration!

 

IMPORTANT:   Be sure to read before registering

1.  SWIM TEAM READY.  Your child must be swim team ready.  To be "Swim Team Ready" your child must be able to swim 25 yards of at least one competitive stroke (Freestyle, Backstroke, Breastroke or Butterfly) unassisted.  If you are unsure if your child is "Swim Team Ready", DO NOT proceed with registration.  Instead, contact Coach Sean at seanqblackhawkcc.org for an evaluation.

2. MEMBERSHIP.  You must have an active/valid Blackhawk Club Swim/Fitness or above  membership number in order to proceed with HOX Registration (except 15/18 age group).  If you DO NOT have a valid BHCC membership number, please contact Nikki Ericksen at 925-736-6503 or nericksen@blackhawkcc.org for membership information and HOX registration instructions.

If you are new to the HOX Swim Team, DO NOT continue with registration (including Mini HOX the prior year).  Instead, please contact Coach Sean at seanq@blackhawkcc.org for a mandatory evaluation. No registrations will be approved until they have been cleared to swim by coach Sean.

Once you have a valid BHCC membership number you may proceed with registration will begin to receive team communications and be able to order team apparel.

Please note 15-18's are not required to have a BHCC membership.  When prompted to enter a BHCC Membership number, enter "15-18" as your club number. 11
