HYCAT @ Huntington is a USA Swimming ONLY SwimTeam:
HYCAT is a member team of United States Swimming. USA Swimming is the largest organization of competitive swimming in the world.
HYCAT hosts two of the largest USA swimming meets in the state, the Huntington Invitational and the West Virginia State Championship. The two meets bring in hundreds of swimmers from many of the surrounding states and are the main fundraisers for our team.
USA Swim Meets are set up as invitationals and are conducted throughout the course of several days, usually Friday through Sunday. Swimmers do not have to participate in all days of the meets, but may choose to swim one or two days. These meets require participants to pay additional entry fees, but also provide swimmers with awards such as ribbons or plaques.
