The Hannibal Hurricanes

The Hannibal Hurricanes Swim Team is a year-round competitive swim program for swimmers from age 5 through college. The Hurricanes compete in both YMCA- and USA Swimming-sanctioned events.



Our mission is to foster the development of local youth as competitive swimmers and well-adjusted individuals who embody the YMCA’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. We offer a professionally coached instructional program emphasizing hard work, attention to detail, and the embrace of individual and team challenges.



A group of interested parents, a supportive YMCA, and Spike Ehrhardt of Hardees Family Restaurants founded our team in 1986. We have continued to prosper due to the support of the YMCA and the commitment of the swim parents. Parent committees organize and manage meets, stage fundraisers, and ensure the future of competitive swimming in Hannibal. Teamwork drives Hurricane success at all levels of the program.
