2022 Mini HOX Summer Program

Program Dates:  June 13 - July 21


Summer Mini HOX exposes children to the fun and excitement of participating in a recreational swim team setting with the potential to participate on the HOX Swim Team in the coming year or two.  The program is ideal for children who enjoy the water but may find it challenging to swim the full length of a 25 yard competition pool. As such, Junior Coaches will be in the water during practice. Stroke technique is taught in all four competitive strokes: backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle as well as other fundamental principles of swimming. Your child should be 3-6 years old by June 15, 2022 and fully potty trained to participate in the Mini HOX program.   

If you are unsure if this program is appropriate for your child, Coach Sean evaluates all swimmers and can make recommendations for the appropriate program, session or private lesson. Email Sean at:  [email protected], to set up a mandatory evaluation.

The Mini HOX Liaison is Bridget Loen. Please feel free to email her at:  [email protected]  with any questions or concerns you may have as they relate to Mini HOX.

Please note:  No swimmer will be allowed in the pool until an observation is completed, registration is approved by the Registrar and payment is submitted. 



New Swimmers:  If you are a current Blackhawk Country Swim/Fitness member but new to Mini HOX or unsure if your child is ready for Mini HOX, please email the Registrar, Renae Valdes, and she can assist in coordinating the mandatory evaluation with Coach Sean.

Returning Mini HOX from 2021:  Space is limited, click on the "Continue or Check Status" button below to continue to registration. Upon submitting the online registration, families will either receive a confirmation email from the Registrar with login instructions, or an email requesting that the swimmer is required to attend a one-on-one in water observation with Coach Sean. This will allow Sean to place each swimmer into a group to best fits their current development. One-on-one observations will be about 5-10 minutes in duration. Please note that these observations are not "try outs." It is simply an effort to ensure swimmers are placed in groups with swimmers of similar abilities.
