Many Saturday, from 9:30 am to 1 pm, join us at the Saturday Swim School where we provide group instruction and always try to include 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 switched to the Allegheny Middle School swim pool on the Northside, across the street from the Aviary, in the fall of 2018. We hope to get back to using the swim pool at Oliver High School when the swim pool is working again.

We would love to bring in scout groups, sports teams and other civic organizations for game-time opportunities on Saturdays. If your group or club wishes to schedule a visit to the wonderful, 8-lane, 25-yard pool, don't hesitate in reaching out to us.

Guest practice with the CV Varsity Swimmers and SKWIM is the next encounter, but only open to students on the swim team this Friday.

Be ready to swim at 7:30 pm as we exit to sidewalk at 9 pm. Meet Coach Mark on bulkhead between the pools. We follow a club swim practice and CV youth swim lessons, so stay out of their way as we arrive.

SKWIM is a disk game, played with fins, non-contact with two teams. It is fun, quick and builds stamina. Meanwhile, advance water polo players are also often invited for a game-day. We have two pools. We'll do a blending of community programming with the goals of providing more opportunities for kids to get into age-group swimming, and to allow them to get experiences with SKWIM and water polo and becoming varsity and masters water polo players on local teams -- as well as lifeguards.

See SKWIM.us for water safety quiz and how-to play lessons.

We would love to bring in other teams for some game-time on Friday night. If your group or club wishes to schedule a visit to the wonderful, 8-lane, 25-yard pool, don't hesitate in reaching out to us.
