The Oak Hills Swim Team has been active for nearly 40 years! Hundreds of swimmers have learned to swim and competed under the Oak Hills Recreation Program, establishing itself as one of the hallmarks of the Oak HIills neighborhood.
The Oak Hills Swim Team participates in the Metro Portland Summer Swim League, offering swimmers the opportunity to learn more about the essential four strokes, get great exercise for an hour each day, and most importantly have fun with their friends throughout the summer. Swimmers will have the chance to attend multiple meets, including the championship meet at Mt. Hood Community College. Swim Team registration is open to all Oak Hills residents and their families. Registration is also open to swimmers from outside Oak Hills if they are ponsored by a resident. Team size is limited and priority is given to Oak Hills residents.

The mission for all Oak Hills Recreation programs and facilities is to provide a safe, healthy and inviting environment for recreation and learning to all Oak Hills residents and their guests, in order to foster goodwill and pride in our neighborhood.
All swimmers must be able to demonstrate proficiency in two different competitive strokes, each for two lengths of our pool. We welcome all qualified swimmers whether they choose to compete on swim meets or just attend practice. All Parents are booster group members and volunteer hours are required but fun.
