Saturday Swim School, fall 2019
Summer fun goes to outdoor SKWIM at The Pittsburgh Project, 1 pm.
Help plan with more robust activities in September, 2019.
Saturdays in the fall and winter, we generally gather from 11:30 am to 1 pm for some group instruction and a fun game of SKWIM. Adult and youth swimmers and non-swimmers with or without their guardians, siblings, children, friends and others from the community are welcome to attend this labor of love.
The location has been at PPS Allegheny Middle School swim pool on the Northside, across the street from the Aviary.
Scout groups, sports teams and other civic organizations are encouraged to contact us for game-time opportunities on Saturdays. If your group or club wishes to schedule a visit, don't hesitate in reaching out to Mark-at-Rauterkus-dot-com.
Let's play SKWIM with your teams.
Varsity, Club, Y and/or Summer swim teams can do this.
Opportunities to swim and play SKWIM in and around Pittsburgh are growing. With your help and invite, we hope to see you at the pool soon.
If in doubt about a gathering, text, email or call Coach Mark, 412-298-3432, or Mark -at- Rauterkus -dot- com.
Invite Coach Mark to your practice. If available, your squad gets to have a fun intra-squad workout, with the fellow coaches either in the water and playing the game with the swimmers or else on the deck.
SKWIM was played with Oakland Catholic and Central Catholic High School swim teams at Chatham University's pool at 10 am practice on Saturday, February 9, 2019. See some of the action at SKWIM.us.
