YMCA Andover/North Andover Swimming
New England Swimming
Level 3

Welcome to the Andover/North Andover YMCA Hurricane Swim Team! We compete at local, regional and national level. We offer opportunities at every level of competition. For our newer swimmers, we encourage everyone to attend at least one meet. For our more advanced swimmers, our coaching staff will help your swimmer reach their goals and attend a number of championship meets. Whatever your comfort level, we have options for swimmers ages 7-18.Our team practices in both the Lawrence YMCA and Andover YMCA pools. 

Hurricane Swimming is dedicated to creating an environment that strengthens the spirits, minds and bodies of its members through competitive swimming. We maintain a very high level of competition while simultaneously keeping a respectful and enthusiastic team atmosphere. We are a nationally-ranked YMCA team where swimmers can achieve their goals through commitment to hard work. Many swimmers will compete in a championship meet at the end of each season, but every member of the team is an integral part of the program.

Swimmers are encouraged to adopt the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The Hurricanes Swim Team is a part of the Merrimack Valley YMCA and incorporates all these values into its operating philosophy.

Hurricane Swimming Vision: The Hurricanes Swim Team is a force for positive change, taking a leadership role in providing competitive opportunities for swimmers in the Merrimack Valley Region.

Hurricane Swimming Mission: The Hurricanes swim team, a volunteer driven organization, is dedicated to creating an environment that strengthens the Spirits, Minds and Bodies of its members through competitive swimming. 

The Merrimack Valley YMCA welcomes all people regardless of age, race, gender, religious affiliation, or socioeconomic background. The organization identifies and responds to community needs in areas including recreation, aquatics-based programming, housing for the homeless and near homeless population, child-care, outdoor and camping opportunities, arts and humanities programming, teen development, community development, and community health and wellness.

The Hurricanes Swim team is both a "YMCA" team and a "USA Swimming" team. Swimmers will have access to competitions offered from both leagues, with some restrictions. All swimmers will have access to YMCA league meets. USA Swim Meets do require a membership. Some swim meets will require a certain cut time, age group or specialty for attendance. Our coaching staff will be able to guide you and your swimmer to the correct swim meets for their age and ability.
