Long standing Aquatics History

Swimming was the main reason The Hills opened its doors in the summer of 1962. Pacific Masters Record Holder Al Kallunki taught swimming and brought team swimming to The Hills through the 1960’s and 1970’s. His dedication to the learn-to-swim program gave The Hills a solid reputation of producing talented swimmers.  From lap and recreation swimming, we also offer beginning swimming at all ages to advanced senior level competition. With private and group lessons we prepare swimmers to join our year round Hills Hurricane Swim Team where we compete against the top swimmers in one of the nation’s top leagues, “Pacific Swimming”. The Hills swim team is a member of the United States Swimming Organization.

Swim Team

Hills Hurricane Swimming is a year-round USS youth team that participates in 1 - 2 swim meets a month with Pacific Swimming.  Swimmers begin at 6 years old to advanced senior level swimmers in High School.  Beginner swimmers must master 50yd freestyle with side breathing, 25yd backstroke, 30 seconds of treading in deep water, and streamline 5ft off the wall. All swimmers are required to register with Pacific Swimming.  Full group descriptions, registration, and meet/practice schedule below. 

We also offer a very popular Pre-Competition Swim Team group for children age 4 - 10 years old.  The Manta Rays and Tidal Waves practice January through November.  These groups incorporate beginning level swimming skills to pre-competition skills.  This is the best opportunity to prepare a child for our swim team here at The Hills.

The team allows a limited number on Non-club members into the program.  Please contact Coach Shad for availability.
