The Rattan Creek Hurricanes Swim Club is a family-friendly summer swim team in northwest Austin, Texas. As a member of the Northwest Swim Circuit, our mission is to provide a structured recreational activity that teaches swimmers the value of competition, sportsmanship, teamwork and individual achievement, while they make new friends and get a great workout! Our season runs from mid April through mid July. Practices take place after school until the school year ends, then we switch to morning practices. We're gearing up for registration to open to all new & returning swimmers in early March of 2024!

Practices - We typically practice in the evenings at the Rattan Creek Pool during May while school is in session, and then switch to mornings once school is out. Closer to our season, you'll find practice times for the different age groups on the practice page.
Frequently Asked Questions- Is your family new or curious about the Hurricanes and have some questions? Or are you a returning family and in need of a refresher about ALL the things? Please check out our FAQ or the team handbook both found on the Resources page.
Volunteering - The Hurricanes Swim Team is a parent run, volunteer organization that requires families to volunteer during the season. Parent volunteers play a key role in the success of the Hurricane Swim Team. Families will need to make a commitment to volunteer a minimum of 18-24 hours per swim season, regardless of whether the swimmer swims at Saturday meets. Check out our volunteer page for more information.
Sponsors- A great way to contribute is by sponsoring the team or by finding us sponsors. Want to advertise your business with our amazing community? A Hurricane sponsorship is a great way to do that, we have several levels of sponsorship available. Please contact Blaire if you are interested in sponsoring the Hurricanes or helping out with fundraising.
Fundraising- Another great way to help us with our fundraising is by being aware of opportunities provided by your employer. Many companies have matching programs or reward employees for volunteer time. See below for more information.
More Ways to Help - There are always opportunities to help out the Hurricanes with fundraising, coach appreciation, team spirit activities, pep rallies, banquet committee, Hurrithon committee, to name just a few. Be on the look for the needs about these opportunities to be shared during the season.
What is your employer's corporate donation policy?
Did you know that certain locally-based businesses donate to 501(c)(3) organizations? This is done either through matching programs or through programs that contribute money to organizations for which their employees volunteer time. The hours typically need to be tracked in the company's system or minimal documentation has to be completed, but that is often the only requirement.
Does your employer offer this benefit? If so, please designate the Hurricanes as a recipient and let Blaire our fundraising chair know. Thank you!!
