What do we need to try out for the Mt. Hood Aquatics Team?

  • Swimmers must be at least 5 years old and able to swim 25 yards of freestyle & backstroke.
  • Swimmers should wear a swimsuit and bring their own towel.  You may also bring a cap and goggles if your child prefers to use those during tryouts.
  • If you're not sure your swimmer is ready to start swimming on a team, come watch a practice. (There are Mt. Hood Aquatic practices happening every night at Mt. Hood Community College from 6pm-7pm!)
