Replace running Saturday morning in 12-degree temperatures on January 7, 2016, by going to to Oliver High School pool (Brighton Rd.upper Northside) for a stroke clinic and swim work out from 9:00-11:30. Or come to swim!
Sponsored by Mark Rauterkus, man of many swim events! Mark sponsors many water polo teams and swimming events in the Pittsburgh area. A donation to his efforts would be nice, but otherwise my time is complimentary for YOU!
I will complete a Coaches’ Eye individual video analysis of your swimming stroke, and I will provide tips to increase your balance, streamline and body position. There will also be time for a New Year’s swim workout!! If you spread the word, just have them email me. Waiver’s will be on site.
Please RSVP, reply to me, or text me, if you are interested so that Mark and I know who to expect. If you have a time in mind, we will be going on about 15 min, increments starting at 9:15, 9:30,9:45,10:00,10:15 so indicate a time in your RSVP. Group Swim will start about 10:45. This schedule is flexible, subject to change depending on everything! I will confirm with you, contact me before Saturday.
See you Saturday?

Oliver High School: 9:00-11:30 am, Brighton Avenue above the Northside. Tip: Park in the lot near the loading dock. The pool is close to the gym and then down the stairs.
In 2016, the contract for Swim & Water Polo from Pittsburgh Public School was for 47 students. That was about 25% of the contract for 2015.
In 2017, the aim is to get more sites, more students and more water polo.swim_water_polo_2017_proposal
Planning and proposals are being crafted for activities for Pittsburgh Public Schools’ Summer Dreamers Academy. Early feedback may arrive in January.
Swim & Water Polo, always one of the most popular activities among students, gets everyone into the pool every day. If you can’t swim, you’ll learn. We improve our strokes, abilities and all become deep-end swimmers, divers and real aquatic athletes. Play various aquatic games, especially SKWIM and Olympic water polo. Zoom ahead in your fitness, strength, teamwork skills and have fun.
Calling all open water swimmers, coaches, varsity swimmers interested in open water swimming, and triathletes, of course. We are going to do our first SEMINAR at the Saturday Swim School and devote a three-hour session to skills and insights associated with open water swimming.november-5-flier-open-water-swim-clinic-2016-2
This is the first time we’ve been able to a introduce a new partnership with Joella. Not only is she a great triathlete, but she is a coach and director of a youth triathlon team that aims to expand with activities in the city of Pittsburgh.
In the summer of 2016, a few of the city kids were able to join in with the open water swims hosted at Moraine State Park. A former Schenley and Obama swimmer, Jonnah, was also able to race in the sprint triathlon in September too. Next year, we want to be going north for open water swims and triathlons by the van and bus loads. But, it starts now, here, on November 5. We need to gain the knowledge, insights, and confidence of how it works to swim in the open.
Space is limited to 20 people. Sign up now with an email.
As a bonus, stick around after the session ends at 1 pm to learn and play Underwater Hockey to 1:45 pm. So, if you have a mask, snorkel and fins, bring them.
As a triple bonus, show up at 8 am to play the aquatic game of SKIWM. That happens from 8 am to 10.

Back to school, or back to prison for kids. How is our educational landscape?

Once upon a time, there was this kid who could not swim, so he said.
That’s John Wayne!
This is the entry for the GNC Liberty Mile in 2015 from our Swim & Water Polo Camp, showing kids and staff, organized by first name. We’ve done a lot of running this year, especially at Camp South Hills and with the King’s Canyon at Camp Langley and even at Camp Faison after the bus ride or on days when there wasn’t a bus. With the 90-degree heat expected in the next two days, the running is put on the back burner. We have an advantage however, as we can run in the swim pool!
