2018 Late Registration Form

WELCOME TO THE HURRICANES!!! 

We’re excited you’re here! We are offering Registration for all swimmers for the 2018 season.

We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration. The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you easily declare for swim meets, sign-up for jobs, see your children's swim times histories, maintain your own contact information, and more.

If you are a returning Hurricane, please log into your account from last year. If you can’t remember your log in information, please contact us for assistance: admin@hurricaneswimteam.org 

It’s very important that duplicate accounts are not created for returning swimmers. 

Swim Season – Evening Practice (approx. 5-8pm) begins Tuesday, May 1st . The Red/White meet is tentatively scheduled for May 18th. We have NO meet nor practice Memorial Day Weekend! Morning practice (6:45-10:45) begins Wednesday, May 30th. Our first Dual meet is June 2nd , and our last meet, the Divisional Meet, will be July 7th. The Invitational Meet (for those swimmers who qualify) will be July 14th at Texas A&M.

We will determine specific practice times after registration, when we know how many kids we have in each age group.

Fees -

  • May 1- Late registration fee is $200 for each swimmer.

Registration fees are our primary source of team revenue and cover coaches’ salaries, swim insurance, ribbons and awards, age-group photographs, individual trophies, team equipment, and administrative expenses (Board members are volunteers).

All swimmers for The Rattan Creek Hurricanes must be able to swim one length of the pool (25 meters) in either Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, or Butterfly, by the 1st practice day, as assessed by the Head Coach. The Rattan Creek Hurricanes is a recreational competitive swim team, not a swim lesson program. The Rattan Creek Hurricanes may only offer a partial refund after documentation of the swimmer's inability to meet this requirement is received with the signature of the Head Coach. Insurance and other fees are not refundable. Please consider your child's swimming ability when deciding to join the swim team. A swimmer may reapply at any time with the approval of the Head Coach. 

We look forward to having you join the The Hurricane Swim Club and are excited for another great season!
