Swim Team - Holly Hills HurricanesWelcome to our 17th year of competition and thank you for your interest in joining the Holly Hills Hurricanes for the 2022 summer swim season! The Holly Hills Swim Team invites children ages 4* - 18 of Holly Hills Country Club Members, who are in good standing, to join the team for a summer of competitive and recreational swimming. The Holly Hills Swim Team participates in the Frederick County Summer Swim League which provides structured competition by age categories for both boys and girls events.
Planning for the upcoming season is well under way. We are excited to return to normal swim team operations this year, with both home and away in-person swim meets. Practices will begin at the end of May and run through July. There will be five planned swim meets, plus time trials, on June 11, June 18, June 25, July 9, July 16 and July 23. If your swimmer qualifies, All Stars will be held on July 30.
The registration fee is $185 per family and $60 per swimmer. Invoicing for swim team will be reflected on your member billing.
For more information, please visit www.hollyhillshurricanes.org.
*The Holly Hills Hurricanes would like all interested swimmers to join our team. It is not required that your child can swim the length of the pool unassisted, however we do encourage all swim team members to demonstrate some comfort and familiarity with the water. For example, children should enter the water willingly and without swim floaties, be able to put their face in the water and blow bubbles, and show a desire to push off the wall and swim.
If you feel your child is ready for Swim Team, please register. We will evaluate each child during the first few weeks of practice and reach out to anyone we feel may need more individual attention than the Swim Team can offer. We may suggest swim lesson to increase your child’s abilities.
All children are invited and encouraged to participate in the swim meets. Even if they don’t log an official swim time, they’ll make some amazing memories that will foster a love for the sport. Please feel free to contact a Swim Team Board member if you have questions!
New to Swim Team?
Is this your first year with the Holly Hills Hurricanes, have young kids who are just starting out, or need a refresher on how swim team works? We invite you to join us for a family information night. The event will be a great opportunity to learn about swim team, meet the coaches and the swim team board, and ask any questions you may have.
Please plan to join us on May 24 at 7 p.m. at Holly Hills Country Club.
Parent Volunteer Requirement
New this year! Parent volunteers are essential to the operation of the Holly Hills Swim Team. Without support from every swim team family, we would be unable to provide the fun and quality experience your athletes enjoy each summer. And because volunteer help is especially critical to the smooth running of the swim meets and other Hurricane events, it is mandatory that each family volunteer a minimum of four (4) hours this season.
There are many ways to help before, during and after meets to accommodate family schedules. When swim team officially begins at the end of May, a sign up link will be circulated to all parents to sign up for the volunteer positions for each meet and other social events Coach Karaline has planned this season.
In the event a family does not volunteer for at least four hours by the end of the regular meet season (regular season concludes with the July 16th meet), that family will be charged a fee of $250, to be applied automatically to their Holly Hills monthly member statement.
