2019 HOX  Swim Team

Practice Groups*



To ensure HOX swimmers receive the highest quality coaching and practices, each swimmer will be placed into a practice group that best matches their swimming skills. In many instances, the coaches may already know the specific practice group that a swimmer belongs in. However, some swimmers on the team and all new swimmers to the team will need to be observed to determine the best practice group fit. Coach Sean will conduct the observations of swimmers that have not already been placed in a group, and all new swimmers should request an observation. As the name suggests the observation will be just that; a chance for the coach to observe the swimmer and to assess the best practice group fit. It is not the parent's discression which group their child belongs in, rather the head coach's decision. The observation will not include feedback from the coach.  Swimmers can be moved up as they progress and improve.



* Practice groups will be assigned with each approved summer HOX swim registration based on Coach's determination.  You will not be allowed to attend practice groups that are not assigned to your swimmer(s).
