The Blue Makos - Precompetitive Swim League

The Blue Makos

The Blue Makos program is a precompetitive swim league designed for kids ages 6-15 who have completed Portland Parks & Recreation's Sea Lion swim lesson level, or higher. Swimmers will enjoy the one-hour weekly swim practices and the fun, supportive learning environment fostered by experienced instructors. During practices, swimmers will receive instruction in each of the four competitive strokes (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Freestyle), dives, and turns. 

The ten week term culminates in a mock-swim meet, where participants can experience competitive swimming in a non-competitive atmosphere.
