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. Kevin speaks and leads training on water safety and SKWIM around the world including a visit to Pittsburgh in April, 2017. Kevin leads SKWIM INTERNATIONAL and offers programs in the Seattle area. Mark Rauterkus was hired as the nonprofit executive director of SKWIM USA in January 2018.
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.
This new aquatic game is played extensively at Pittsburgh Public Schools’ Swim & Water Polo Camp as part of its Summer Dreamers Academy.
