Hunter Middle School



The Ooltewah Middle/High, East Hamilton Middle/High and Hunter Middle schools swim clubs will start their season October 1st. The season will go through the end of January.


Registration & Practice:
All swimmers will need to join a year round swim team for practice.
**Your swimmer must join a year round team before they register for the middle/high school club. Once they have joined a year round team then they can register with the school club. The school club registration dues will NOT include the fees for year round practice, that cost will be paid monthly to the year round club your swimmer joins. The monthly cost for the year round team will depend on your swimmers group assignment based on swimming ability. There are several year round clubs in the Chattanooga area but if you prefer to stay in the Ooltewah area your swimmer can join SETS which swim out of the Ooltewah swim center.

SETS registration information 


**Any questions with year round registration at Ooltewah swim center can be directed to Coach Stephen Jones at [email protected]


*There is also a Middle/High school swim practice group located at McCallie. The link for information is below. Questions regarding this practice must be directed to McCallie swimming.


Swim Meets: The current scheduled meets are listed on your schools swimtopia website.

Every swimmer parent/guardian is expected to help with volunteering. Please sign up for opportunities that we post.


The team will have a portal with swim outlet where you can purchase the team suit and needed equipment. The link will be listed on the school swim club swimtopia website. Spirit wear will be through sport spectrum. That link will be on the website once it is live. Sport Spectrum orders will close on October 7th.


Coach Mikal Thurman will be our head coach this season. Mikal Thurman is a USA registered coach through USA swimming. Coach Teri will be assisting with our middle school teams. She is also a registered coach with USA swimming. Please note practices will be facilitated by the year round coach at the pool you join for practice.


Communication: Everyone joining will be sent an invite to join the slack app. The slack app will be where we do ALL of the team communication. Please accept the invite to join slack once you receive the invite, your swimmer should join as well. There will be no email communication through the swimtopia site. If you were a member last season you will need to sign up again as we have changed our slack portal.


Practice will start for your swimmer once they join a year round club. All swimmers should join a club no later than October 1st. In order to practice you must complete registration and payment with the year round team and the school club swimtopia website. Your swimmer will also need a copy of their physical form brought to the Ooltewah pool or scanned and emailed to us. Having the physical form is mandatory. Without it your swimmer will not be placed in a meet to swim.


We are excited to be back in the pool! Hope to see you there.

Please email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
