Save the date. Saturday evening. Our athletes are getting to take the field at 5:30 pm with the professional team, the Pittsburgh Thunderbirds. Show up after 5 pm and before 5:30 to visit with the coach and volunteers.
Handout to Campers:
Our swimmers, water polo players, SKWIM athletes, staff and lifeguards — plus family and friends — are invited to join together for a special event this Saturday evening, tomorrow, July 15, 2017, at South Side’s PPS Cupples Stadium for interactions on the field with Pittsburgh Thunderbirds, a city’s professional ULTIMATE team.
Arrive after 5 pm to check in with Coach Mark, and be ready to hit the field from 5:30 to 6 pm with the players. Then we’ll stay to watch and cheer for the team at its 7 pm game.
Meet up at the gates of the stadium AFTER 5pm and before 5:30 pm. Youngsters should be accompanied by an adult. This is an optional event. Everyone has to get there on their own.
Tickets (generally $10 each) to the game between the Pittsburgh Thunderbirds vs. Detroit have be obtained by Coach Mark for our group. Everyone who can attend the game needs to reserve their family’s tickets by doing ONE of the following:
- EMAIL Mark@Rauterkus.com with the names of the people who are attending.
- TEXT Coach Mark at (412) 298-3432 with the names of the people attending. OR,
- Go to the site, https://Play.CLOH.org/ (you are here) and do “web join” and then leave a comment with the names and number of tickets of those who are attending.
At the game, Coach Mark hopes to visit with guardians and players and share some other insights into additional activities to come in our normal sessions slated for this summer — plus some other optional activities too.
Thank you Pittsburgh Thunderbirds. The game of ULTIMATE is a disk-game much like our aquatic game of SKWIM. Seeing these players and their teamwork, passing, defense, hustle and sportsmanship can inspire our play and help us become better athletes.

The efforts within the course circle around hockey’s landscape. Even if hockey isn’t your go-to-game, all students, players, coaches and fans are going to learn and review plenty of math and science. This mini-course, Future Goals – Hockey Scholar, delivers excellent graphics and lessons for learning learning and reviewing academic skills in math and science. The course takes about three hours to complete.
Kids from across Pennsylvania are starting to use Future Goals – Hockey Scholar to boost Science and Math Pennsylvania standards using this digital environment. Each 20-minute lesson resembles a virtual lab where students build their vocabulary and background knowledge, test variables, and draw conclusions from data. The modules contain self-grading assessments and help provide the “why” behind science and math topics.

In 2016, the staff of the BGC’s Swim & Water Polo Camp crafted 25 digital badges. The terms and framework of the badges have changed and a new site, LRNG.org, opened in the spring of 2016.
One of the badges created for yoga is going to be turned into an XP and within the exercise section of the CLOH.org offerings. Tim Krupar is the yoga instructor.
