Hurricane Swim Club is one of the oldest and most successful swim clubs in Northern Maine. Hurricane Swim Club was founded in 1976 by Tim Babcock, our original goal was to provide a top-quality, year-round swim program for the communities of the Greater Bangor area.
Over the years this vision has become a reality, with a succession of championship swimmers. But Hurricane Swim Club’s swim program strives to provide all our swimmers with the opportunity to be their best. We want to produce world class citizens as well as world class swimmers.
Hurricane Swim Club is a fully-sanctioned USA Swimming and Maine Swimming, Inc. program subsidized by its members. The team operates ten months out of the year and offers two seasons of training and competition. The team prides itself on offering quality coaching, and a motivating and supportive environment in which to train.
We provide swimmers with the opportunity to enjoy the sport of swimming, taking their skills to a higher level, strive for true excellence and pursue their biggest dreams. But to start, a swimmer needs only to be able to complete one full length of the pool (25 yards) of both freestyle and backstroke without assistance to be considered for membership. We happily welcome new swimmers and their families to join Hurricane Swim Club any time during the swim season.
