Welcome back – early season engagement for DU Club Swimmers at the country club pool


This summer, my days at the swim pool were spent coaching and managing at the Montour Heights Country Club.

Here is how you can join me there — 4 events on tap.This Friday, 8/19, and on Saturdays mornings to Labor Day, you can join me for a swim and aquatic experience. #1: Band Night and Pool Party, Friday, August 19 at Montour Heights Country Club. Music from The Dean Street Kings, 7 to 10 pm. Wine tasting earlier.. Opening the gates at 4:30 pm and into the evening. Bring your suits. We want you to play a game (or two) of SKWIM. #2. Masters Swim Practice & SKWIM games for the next three Saturdays from 7:30 am to 11. Masters Swim Practice – lane lines and workout – happens from 7:30 to 8:30 am or so. Then we take out the lane lines and hold some SKWIM Games. So, you can come at 8:30 for that and bypass the laps. In the lap time, we’ll do a freestyle lesson and mini clinic if you are so inclined. Okay to RSVP to Mark@Rauterkus.com. Wishing to re-launch the Saturday Swim School this summer and build up to a robust suite of aquatic experiences for winter and 2023. Chip in some $ if you are able and not a member of the club. All ages after 8:30 am. Parents and kids are strongly encouraged to come together. Heated pool. Summer is not over yet. Playing well with others happens here.–Ta.
