Want to become an OLAUGer?

I mean, who wouldn't, right? We hold tryouts each June for swimmers and kayakers, though for 2024 we already have enough people. If you want to get on the 2025 list, email us at OLAUG.MA@gmail.com.

To be a swimmer, in addition to being an old lady (obviously!) you need to be an excellent swimmer, comfortable in the water for 90+ minutes and proficient in use of a mask and snorkel. We swim freestyle with no fins. You should be able to swim a half mile in under 30 minutes and free dive to 8-10 feet.

To be a kayaker, you need to be able to maneuver with some finesse without whacking swimmers in the head. You should also be comfortable taking (and maybe talking) trash from the swimmers.
