The Fox Swim Club offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Fox Swimming to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each stroke to the best of their abilities.  All swimmers are expected to participate in competitions in order for coaches to evaluate progress.
