Spring Mini HOX

 Spring Mini HOX - 2018

Click Here to Register for Spring Mini HOX

The Mini HOX program was created to expose children to the fun and excitement of participating on a recreational swim team and to prepare them to participate on the HOX swim team next year.  This program is ideal for young children who enjoy the water but may find it challenging to swim the full length of a 25 yard competition pool.

Please note that Mini HOX is not a learn-to-swim program or a private swim lesson. The program is not appropriate for children who are neither water-safe nor potty trained (swim diapers are not allowed). If your child does not fulfill the requirements for participation in Mini HOX, private swim one-on-one lessons are available. In an effort to find the best fit for each swimmer, the coaches reserve the right to make adjustments regarding a swimmer's participation in Mini HOX and to refer them to the appropriate program.

Recommended gear - swim suit, swim cap, fins, goggles (TYR "Swimple" goggles are recommended as they fit really well on little faces)


Mini HOX 2018 Spring Clinic

The Mini HOX Spring practices will be run by Coach Emma and Coach Sean. The coaches will be in the water with the Mini HOX during practice. The program will 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 3-5 years old by June 15, 2018 and fully potty trained to participate in the Mini HOX program.  This program is only for Blackhawk Country Club swim, tennis or golf members. 

Mini HOX Spring Clinic Cost: $200

In order for the program to be offered, minimum enrollment is 4 swimmers. If 6 or more swimmers enroll (maximum of 8), Coach Sean will break kids into 2 equal sized groups and offer a second practice time. Groups will be determined by current skill level; parents must be willing to take one of the two time slots listed above, subject to enrollment numbers.


* 5 or less swimmers - 1 class time offered

* 6 - 8 swimmers – 2 class times offered

Observation for group placement: 

All registrants are required to attend a pre-class one-on-one in water observation with Coach Sean. This will allow him to place each swimmer into a group to best fit their current development and a fun way to get to know Coach Sean. One-on-one sessions will be about 5-10 minutes in duration.
