Show Off Swims throughout the fall semester with MACS

Notice the improvement in swimming abilities.

Practices began in the fall and video shows various ability levels. In the first days, a few of the swimmers could swim in deep water. By the end of the semester, every student could swim a length of the pool.

These highlights focused upon freestyle swimming and ignored┬áthe water polo and SKWIM game play. The intra-squad game play was a valued element of the educational experience. Sadly, opportunities for competition with other school-based teams and water polo clubs did not materialize as planned. More than five “game days” were cancelled. Some swimmers did go to North Allegheny for a clinic and game play on a Sunday afternoon.

Background music was recorded from some parade sounds this fall while on a trip to New Orleans.
