Board of Directors

The Evergreen Hurricanes Swim Team Board of Directors consists of seven voting members — six parent volunteers and the head coach. The Board meets on the third Tuesday of every month, usually from 5:30-6:30pm in the conference room at Wulf Rec Center. (Check the team calendar to be sure of the time!). All interested team members are welcome to attend.

The mission of the Board of Directors is to provide a financially sound organization with a strong volunteer base and qualified coaching staff for our team members and parents.

The Evergreen Swim Team strives to develop the maximum potential of our athletes with a program that emphasizes discipline, personal growth, and excellence in technique.  Our coaching staff encourages our swimmers to achieve their best performance through personal dedication, hard work, and commitment to their teammates.   Through their experience with the Evergreen Swim Team, we envision that swimmers will become strong athletes while developing valuable life skills such as integrity, mental toughness, time management, a strong work ethic, and self confidence.

The Team Bylaws were updated and approved by the Board in July 2013.   Click here for the bylaws.
