Lifeguard and new site,

Come Live Over Here, housekeeping, News, People


Getting ready to open a new site, <a href=""></a>. Hope to feature ways to network the swim scene in-and-around Pittsburgh. Swimming and aquatics can be a community resource as powerful as a fourth river.

Happy to do some events and programs in recent months at Moon, Mt. Lebanon, Chartiers Valley, South Park, Elizabeth Forward, North Allegheny, Montour and, of course, many city pools, park pools and pools where we go with our swim team efforts.
