Co-ed, community Water Polo, swimming instruction, and digital badge opportunities happen at Citiparks’ Northside Sue Murray Swim Pool
From Allegheny Center, David Schulenburg and Mark Rauterkus led summer-long swimming and water polo lessons for Northsiders of all ages at Citiparks’ Sue Murray Swim Pool. The program created a welcoming environment to introduce the community to water polo, digital badges, and new friends from the Northside through organized activities and coaching.
“The Northside is a regional sports hub, home to the Steelers, Pirates, rowers, paddlers, cyclists, and Pittsburgh Triathalon,” said project leader Mark Rauterkus. “Now, city residents need to teach our kids how to play well with others and develop character, wellness, and relationships.”
