Code of Conduct

Update May 11, 2020: it remains unclear if and how this year’s Highland Lakes Hurricanes Swim Team season will be conducted. The tentative guidance from the Lakeland Conference is that a limited season may be conducted based on which teams register for the season. The Club has renewed its membership in the conference in anticipation of conference events being conducted sometime this summer. We recognize that some may find this uncertainty troubling, and we will do our best to provide updates when available.

Signups for the 2020 Swim Team are being conducted ONLY through forms published on this website until such time as the Activity Center reopens – date remains uncertain. Please use the link above for the Swim Team Registration Form, which provides instructions on how to submit it.
The Highland Hurricanes have a rich tradition of competition and camaraderie. Our coach will start working with children as soon as they can successfully swim the length of a lane up until they graduate from high school. We encourage new and returning swimmers to participate.

HL Swim Team 2014

We are a member of Lakeland Swim Conference (LSC) which is a conference of other North Jersey lake communities with swim teams. Weekly meets against other lake teams in the Lakeland Conference are held on Wednesday nights at home or away. The Highland Lakes Invitational is held on the last Saturday of July, and swimmers have the option of traveling to invitationals hosted by other lakes most Saturdays in July and early August. Find out more about our meets and invitationals.

Our primary mode of notification is via email, but meet line-ups, results, and other important information will be posted on the Swim Team bulletin board under the clubhouse deck.

As with all HLCC activities, volunteers are essential components of the team’s success. There are numerous ways for parents, grandparents, siblings and others to help. We can use “chaperones” for away meets, timers, concession sales and help at the scoring table. The “B” Invitational is our biggest event of the year and we can always use help setting up, breaking down and throughout the day. Many hands make light work. Find out how easy and fun it is to volunteer.

Please see our Code of Conduct for expectations of behavior for parents and swimmers.

Sign ups for swim team begin on Memorial Day weekend at the clubhouse. Swim team generally starts before other club activities, usually coinciding with the week Vernon’s school district closes for summer break.

Swimmers practice 5 days a week. Practices will not be held in adverse weather conditions such as thunder and lightning, and are sometimes cancelled the day of, or day after meets. These decisions are made by the coach. General practice schedule is split up by age group but swimmers may be moved around at the discretion of the coach based on skill level.

This is the practice schedule:

9 am – 10 am: ages 13+
10 am – 11 am: ages 9 – 12
11 am – 11:45 am: ages 8 and under
11:30 am – 12 pm: ages 6 and under
