Dear Fellow Swim Coaches:

Your opinions, feedback and participation are welcomed, at your leisure, as you are able. Thanks for the consideration.

#1. You, your spouse, other helpers with you team, and even a few of your varsity swimmers are invited to join in at a seminar and demonstration as well as post-game social to be held in Pittsburgh's South Side starting at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, April 12, 2017, at the historic, Citiparks' Oliver Bath House. Out of town guest include aquatic experts with the National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA.org) and Kevin McCarthy of Washington state,  inventor of the aquatic game, SKWIM. Bring your Swim suit and towel as we will put our PA friends into SKWIM games with opponents from around the nation, learning about this terrific game that you might want to deploy in your facilities too. Then walk to post game social at 9 pm at our home / office at 108 S. 12th Street, South Side, Pgh 15203.

Tickets / RSVP at Swim.CLOH.org.

#2. This past season EVERY high school swim meet we hostedin the city had to begin at 2:30 pm, due to officials shortages. Ugh. 

#3. Because we need more community engagement, and officials, I am most interested in starting a wide reaching Alumni SWIMMING effort. Sure, there is Masters swimming, Tri swimming, Masters Water Polo and Underwater Hockey. All happen in Pittsburgh. Plus, a few of the largest districts have annual alumni events too. Great. But, I think this is the right time to launch a PA and WPIAL SWIM ALUMNI organization. I will be happy to do the heavy lifting and get this started, but would you be willing to serve on a steering committee and participate in a few conference calls? If so, send an email to [email protected] 

#4. Another way to expand and improve swimming in PA, that I think we should address, comes with the formation of another CLASS beyond the existing AAA and AA. Let's ponder the possibilities and ramifications of making a legitimate JV Swim Classification. We have city schools, big and small, that do not have swim teams. Plus, we have teams that are fielding teams that are struggling to survive. A new, "JV designation," within the rules, with a few JV focused meets, could be most welcomed addition for the sport in many settings. Ideas? [email protected] 

Thanks again. Best wishes to you and your teams.
