H3AC Hurricanes Swim Team

To be a Hurricane, you must FIRST -- have completed registration as a member with the Heritage Hills Recreation Club OR have paid and registered for summer swim team with the Town of Chapel Hill OR be a resident of the Westfall community.  THEN, depending on your home location (HH, HAC, WF), you must register as a part of our awesome H3AC swim team!

The Hurricanes are made up of swimmers from members of the Heritage Hills Recreation Club, swimmers from the Homestead Aquatic Center, and swimmers from the Westfall neighborhood. The Hurricanes have been a part of the Chapel Hill Summer Swim League since the 1970s. Each summer, the CHSSL teams compete in dual swim meets and all together at Champs at the end of the season. 

WE -- H3AC -- ARE HOSTING CHAMPS THIS YEAR 2019! WE NEED A LOT OF HELP. IF YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO TAKE ON AN ORGANIZATIONAL ROLE, PLEASE LET Tiki know (hartshorntiki@hotmail.com).
