Coaches and Directors

Galveston Island Swim Team is a parent-owned 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established in Galveston in 1994. Our USA Swimming competitive swim team is called the Hurricanes. They compete regionally usually about once a month throughout the year.

Our organization offers a Swim Lessons program, which is a proud local partner of the USA Swimming Foundation's Make A Splash! program. Instructors follow an objective-based cirriculum and students promote to the next level by way of a swim test, which are conducting as needed and monthly.
