FAQ's


What gear is needed for Hammerheads?

Your own gear is highly encouraged. Caps, HFSS Dolphin racing suits, fins, & goggles are all part of the next step in the progression to become a stronger swimmer. Having your own equipment ensures that you will have fins and goggles that fit and you are ready to go during practice.

 

All gear can be purchased at any HFSS location.

 


Swim Meets

Hammerhead Meets allow swimmers to participate in low key competitive meets at other clubs with their Hubbard Teammates. Meets are offered year-round with a “season” in Spring, Summer and Fall.

Meets are fun, positive events where every swimmer is a winner. Meets are approximately 2.5 hours long and swimmers compete in three different strokes including freestyle, backstroke and either butterfly or breaststroke. 10 and under will automatically be put in for 25s unless otherwise requested by parents and 11 & up swim 50s; times are recorded and tracked. Ribbons are awarded for each race.
