Middle School

Middle School boys 50-free finals, 2019

Sci-Tech won the PPS MS Championships in 2012-13, but the team was called U-Prep. Go figure. 

Water polo could be a fall sport for both high school and middle school if there was a bit more political will to make it happen.

  • Question: I received a flyer yesterday at the middle school swim championship about the all city, aquatics all star team. My son is very interested but I have a few questions…
    How often do they meet?
    Do we attend to both meetings/clinics (Jan 27 & feb 3)?
    How long is this program; does it end at the end of the school year, or is it only those two days?
    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Thanks for the email.

    This is going to be very flexible. It is a start-up. I think we’ll meet every SATURDAY, except at spring break, and perhaps when there is weekend travel for me and the other volunteer swim coaches can’t cover. Weddings, conferences, stuff like that. It will always be published on a google calendar and calling or email before is okay too. I hate wasted trips.

    So, there will be no MANDATORY things.

    I want to see who is interested and in what part of the city they are from. For example, if there are 10 from PCA or 10 from Greenfield — I’ll go out of our way to try to get the pool there once a week too. But, I expect to have a practice at Westinghouse once a week, another too, I hope at Obama. Perhaps one at Sci-Tech or one at Arsenal.

    NO “have to.” But, we’ll have practices / swim opportunities and meetings both Saturdays as advertised. I wanted to see who’s got interest in the next two weeks on Saturdays.

    The program will go to first week of June. I hope kids can make 1 or more practice a week.

    In JUNE, the summer pools will open. I hope to coach throughout the summer at Northside’s The Pittsburgh Project. Plus, we’ll have some Triathlon opportunities and open-water swimming as well, each week, at Moraine State Park. So, in the summer, we’ll have other options as well as other swim teams that come with Citiparks, etc.

    Hope to you you and the kid(s) on a Saturday in the near future.
