Harris Hurricanes provides a comprehensive year-round swimming program for all ability levels.

Bronze teaches fundamentals by means of drills and games to create a fun learning environment. Swimmers must be able to swim one length of the pool without rest or assistance.

Practice for these swimmers provides an equal mix of stroke technique and endurance training. We begin conditioning while maintaining proper stroke mechanics. Swimmers must be able to swim 50 yards freestyle with rotary breathing and 25 yards backstroke.
