Our pool is located in the Hills of Walden Subdivision at 5858 N. Polk, Kansas City, Missouri 64151


Online registration for the 2014 Hills of Walden Hurricanes summer swim team will open on March 28, 2014 and close once we have 175 swimmers or May 30th (after the first week of practices), whichever comes first.  We encourage families to register early to ensure their swimmer(s) have a spot.

Once again you will be able to pay by check or credit/debit card through our secure server. If you choose to pay be check, please mail payment to:  Sam McCullough, 5006 NW 58th Street, Kansas City, MO 64151.

Checks should be made payable to HILLS OF WALDEN SWIM TEAM.

There will be a 20 swimmer capacity for Typhoons.  Once this number is met, Typhoons will be placed on a waiting list and notified by the team if/when a spot becomes available.

Team Suits and Swim Caps

We are wearing the same team suit as last season. There is a direct link button on the web page that will take you directly to the suit and store. Due to our registration with Team Unify, all our members are eligible for 30-40% savings on swim gear by TYR.  You will see the discounted price once you have clicked on the suit. You may order your suits on the website which also includes a useful sizing guide.

We would like each swimmer to have a Hurricanes swimcap, but it is not required. Caps with other team logos are not permitted, but plain black caps are acceptable. Caps will be available for purchase at Concessions at home meets.

Spirit Wear

The Hurricanes are presenting a whole new line of spirit gear for the 2014 season! Each swimmer will be given a free t-shirt at the beginning of the season. Conference Qualifiers will receive a free Conference shirt. 

Parent Meeting

There will be an information meeting at the Hills of Walden Clubhouse on Sunday, May 4th from 2-4 PM.  There will be a parent meeting at 2:30 PM.  You will have the opportunity to check out the spirit gear, meet the coaches, board members, and ask any questions you may have.  We will also have an Ice Cream Social!  This is an opportunity to try on suits for size, as well as register in person.  


Practice for the Hurricanes begins May 27th. Due to snow days, we will keep you posted on time changes for our first week of practice.  Practice times are as follows: *Please note that our practice start date and/or time may change pending a decision by the Northland Conference committee regarding the 2013 Snow Days.

Practices are held Monday through Thursday for Hurricanes and Typhoons. All practices are held at the Walden neighborhood pool.

Non-Competitive Pools

Per USA Swimming Guidelines: NO swimmer is allowed in a non-competition pool during any swim meet. Doing this invalidates the USA swimming insurance for the entire team. This applies to both Walden residents and non-residents and will be very strictly enforced at both home meets and away meets. Swimmers who do not follow this rule are at risk for being barred from the remainder of any meet. (The non-competitive pool at Walden is the small pool with the diving boards—please stay out of this pool during our home meets!)


Teammates who are non Hills of Walden residents are not allowed to use the Walden facilities outside of practices and meets unless they are accompanied and in the presence of a Walden resident. This policy has been set in place by the Hills of Walden Homeowners Association Board of Directors.  There is a $10.00 charge for non-residents that is paid during the registration process.

Safety and Courtesy at Meets

Please respect the perimeter around the pool during competition. Parents should maintain a distance of at least four feet from the pool’s edge at all times so the meet officials and coaches can fulfill their responsibilities to the swimmers. All parents are encouraged to photograph and cheer for the team, but this must be done in an inconspicuous manner that does not interfere with the meet’s progress. Also, unless you are timing, please do not congregate behind the starting blocks or at the Clerk of Course as these areas become very congested. These guidelines will help ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone.
