How to Join


“Are you a skier?” If so, the Eastside High Schools Portland Alpine Ski Race Team is a great opportunity to improve your skiing, enjoy spending time with other like-minded kids, and promote responsibility, discipline, and dedication to your team. High school students from Cleveland, Grant, Franklin, Madison, Benson, and other high schools or private schools on the east side of Portland are eligible to ski on the club team. The program is a ski racing team, is open to skiers (intermediate and above) and has a strong tradition of supporting every member regardless of competitive placement.  8th Graders are welcome too!

Contacts and More Information:    If you and your student are interested in learning about the team, please attend one of our informational/registration meetings, or contact Coach Randy Hewitt at or Parent Director Sharon Johnson at  (503) 778-0701.
