2018 Fox Hunt Mini Splash
Swimmers ages 3 – 6 are invited to join our Mini Splash program, a developmental swim program. Children should be comfortable in the water, willing to submerge their entire head for 5 seconds, and be able to swim 10 yards on their front and back. This summer we are asking families to register for a time by ability. Since registrations begin before the pool opens, we know that groups might change as needed. Mini-Splash practices will be held at the times noted below from June 26 through July 28.
Meets & More
Swimmers will have an opportunity to swim at our “B” Meets on Monday nights!
At the 2 home meets, swimmer can swim across the shallow end, deep end, or 25 M freestyle!
At the 2 away meets, we will work with the home team to develop opportunities for our Mini Splash swimmers.
As a part of the team, swimmers are invited to all social events, including pep rallies and the end of the year banquet. A special Mini Splash team picture will be taken on picture day as well!
