Highland Hurricanes Swim Club (HHSC) is an age-group competitive swimming club located in Highland, Indiana. We were founded in 1971. The Highland Hurricanes is a USA Swimming Club. USS Swimming is the governing association of swim clubs in the United States. There are currently over 270,000 Swimmers in this national organization. Our club is governed by Indiana Swimming, USA Swimming, and is a proud participant in the Northwest Indiana Swim Conference.
We are a feeder team for the Highland High School Swimming & Diving Team. HHSC exists to provide a healthy atmosphere where swimmers learn leadership skills, teamwork, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and the benefits of self-motivation. Our philosophy is to encourage growth in participation of swimming as a competitive sport. This is accomplished by the successful coaching of swimmers through various techniques and sets designed to challenge the limits of each child. As a result, the swimmer will exhibit a high level of swimming ability and enjoy the sport long into their life. We measure success not only in races won, but also in terms of swimmer enjoyment and participation, individual improvement, and setting achievable goals. We have many different objectives at HHSC, including:
● To provide an opportunity for all children to engage in a lifetime sport and recreational activity
● To promote physical fitness
● To encourage good patterns of physical development and proper conditioning
● To provide opportunities for social, emotional and educational development while encouraging peer and family participation
● To promote and encourage swimmers to continue with the sport of swimming through the high school level and even into the college level swim programs.
We want your experience at HHSC to be a positive and enjoyable one.
