The role of sports in the COVID-19 outbreak is a discussion point, especially as all our sports competitions have been called off, including PA High School Swimming meet on Thursday, March 12, 2020. Plus, the USA Swimming's executive director has asked for a delay for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. But, the games have not yet been called off nor delayed.

This award will support our efforts of "playing well with others" at community swim pools. SKWIM USA, a nonprofit that helps to promote swimming, fitness, sportsmanship and game-play get the funding to obtain equipment and host Aquatic Jamboree events this summer in Pittsburgh.
With the spending of other people's money come a big splash of responsibility. So, I'm interested in connecting now to prepare to engage with you, your families, your friends neighbors, organizations and even business contacts.
All ages and all swim abilities are welcome as we play SKWIM at Aquatic Jamborees, but we need to rally more political will to participate and venture out of our comfort zones -- for the sake of fun and fitness.
Can we get your team down to the Northside or Hill District to compete? Or, can we bring our game and perhaps a squad to your summer pool?
