2/14/24 - Tryouts are suspended for the rest of the season.  Tryouts for Long Course Season will begin April 10th!


Prior to registering, all potential new members must first tryout. Tryouts are held every Wednesday at 6:30pm with coach Bobby. Below are the necessary skills (from minimum to strongly recommended) to assure your swimmer has a positive and successful experience.  

Minimum Skills 

Ability to complete a “legal” 50 yards of freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and dive off starting block. Ability to complete 50 yards of fly strongly recommended.

Recommended Skills

Ability to complete “legal” 100 yards of freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, fly, racing dive off the starting block, and flip turn.

Strongly Recommended Skills

Prospective year-round swimmers ideally have experience with competitive swimming. Examples include Portland Parks and Recreation Blue Makos, Summer Swim League, or equivalent programs.

Once you have determined your swimmer meets the skills outlined above, contact the head coach at your desired site pool to schedule a tryout.  After the tryout, the head coach will talk with you about registration.
