Life at the pool is making a bigger splash than ever! Coach Mark Rauterkus is returning for the 2023 Swim & SKWIM seasons and has some exciting plans in store. Visit this page frequently for all that’s happening with swimming, swim team / swim meets, and SKWIM games. And, be sure to check our Events Calendar to find out about other activities at the pool and Sports Complex throughout the season. So, dive in and have some fun this summer!
Anyone seeking lifeguard training to be a new or returning lifeguard should contact Coach Mark at (412) 298-3432 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Reservations, payments, dates, times of classes to be held at Montour Heights, and other facilities, will be shared.
The 2023 Montour Heights Swim Lesson Program is going to be better than ever, with more attention to detail and specific progress pathways.
Swim lessons for youths and adults will happen in a different framework than last year. In 2022, our young swimmers made great strides and became proficient swimmers in sessions with Coach Mark and lifeguards. This year, times are shifting to week-long sessions at 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., and, if the demand is there, to 9 a.m. and 10 a.m.
The lesson program, called U CAN Swim, has evolved from a structure used for years in Canada and is making its USA launch at our club in 2023.
Go here for more details and to sign up for swimming lessons.

The Montour Heights Swim Team hopes to make big improvements in the 2023 summer country club season. Last year, our younger kids had great triumphs. This year, we are seeking more older kids, as well as a new group of younger swimmers, too. The meets accommodate those ages 6 to 18.
This summer after every home meet, and we expect the same after most away meets, we’ll hold a SKWIM game. This makes our friendly participation more exciting and can help to better develop the team-sport aspects.
Practices are Monday through Friday, starting at 5 p.m., except Swim Meet days. Just show up, and be set to go until about 7 p.m.
Customized practice plans from Coach Mark can give kids great cross-training and conditioning for other sports.
