The Fall Program at Blackhawk Country Club is a competitive United States Swimming program open to all children. This is an extension from the summer recreational HOX swim team that runs from September to late November, with Junior Olympic qualifiers continuing through December 8th, 2013. The program is designed to offer more extensive training and technical instruction with an increase in intensity and volume within each group.
In our efforts to provide a positive structured environment we have implemented standards for each group. This will assist in the development of each swimmer to complete all tasks required within their practice at a pace that is challenging, yet productive.
