SKWIM is a fun, fast-paced water game played with two-teams and a SKWIM disk.
SKWIM was invented ten years ago by Kevin McCarthy, a friend from the state of Washington. Both Kevin, SKWIM’s inventor, and Coach Mark, executive director of SKWIM USA, speak and lead training on water safety and SKWIM.
Presentation to Pacific Swim Coaches
Coach Mark traveled to Napa, California, and gave a one-hour talk to swim coaches and the audio, slides and associated videos, are published. See Thinking again about aquatic game play.
Play SKWIM every Tuesday and Thursday, weather permitting, at the Citiparks outdoor pool, Ammon from 6 to 7:45 pm. Water polo practice happens in the deep end with Pittsburgh Renegades masters team. SKWIM happens in the shallow water at the same time.
The aquatic game has been played extensively at Pittsburgh Public Schools’ Swim & Water Polo Camp as part of its Summer Dreamers Academy.
Other organizations offering summer camp and after-school activities have played SKWIM too, including: The Pittsburgh Project, Ozanam, Garfield Gators, Scout Troupes, Citipark lifeguards, Saturday Swim School, Higher Achievement.
