5. Swim Team Ready: If you are unsure if your child is ready for swim team please DO NOT proceed with registration.  Instead, request an observation.

To ensure HOX swimmers receive the highest quality coaching and practices, each swimmer will be placed into a practice group that best matches to their swimming skills. In many instances, the coaches may already know the specific practice group that a swimmer belongs. 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/evaluations and swimmers that have not already been placed in a group and all new swimmers should sign up for an observation. If a swimmer elects not to participate in the observation, they will be placed into the first or beginning tier. Swimmers will be moved up as they progress and improve.

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. The observation will not include feedback from the coach.  Please not, coaching staff may also do an evaluation of any new swimmer registering for the HOX.

Please contact Coach Sean to schedule an observation -
