The Southampton Hurricane Swim Team exists to make better swimmers, to make better competitors and to make better people. The team was founded in 2006 simply to give children in our community the opportunity to be active during the summer. What we soon learned is the byproduct of having over 100 children working together to accomplish both individual and team goals is closer friendships and ultimately a more tight knit community.
Our coaching philosophy is integrity above all else. Just like in life, we know that we will win some and we will lose some. We believe, we are given an extremely valuable opportunity to teach each and every one of our swimmers how to do both with grace. We don't take this honor lightly and believe the character we help to instill is exemplified in the fact that every one of our coaches either swam or swim on the team. No one better understands the culture and expectations better than the kids that have come up through the program.
We also believe that, just like in life, you get out what you put in. We promise to give 100% from a coaching perspective but we encourage every swimmer to commit to give 100% in practice and the meets. If we are all active participants in creating a great experience then that's the only outcome that can happen!!!
