Dax Hill is a very experienced Freestyler who swam under Eddie Reese at University of Texas. Towering at 6’9”, Dax has maximized his long powerful stroke over the span of his career and his middle distance freestyle has shown it.

Dax’s story however, is far from the typical swimming career lifespan that most endure. Dax was recruited by Eddie Reese who originally saw his talent in basketball! Reese has publicly commented how Dax’s smart calculations, aligned with his physical strength made him an excellent candidate for the water. 

Reese was right! Some of Hill’s achievements include being a University Games Gold Medalist, as well as a 3X NCAA Champion, amongst other highlights. 

Dax comes to the sport with a different eye, one that is well versed athletically, as well as disciplined to technicality. Dax makes a great clinician to partner with while learning the fine details of swimming technique and overall character.
