Hi Skwimmers! This is Coach Kevin. Many of you are curious and wondering when to start playing Skwim again. Skwim International supports all federal and local recommendations for safe interaction among players. Currently, many states and cities are still under strict guidlines for social distancing and limited interaction. Most all interactive games, whereby an impliment is shared among players, is not advised at this time.
It is an unfortunate situation we all find ourselves in currently when it comes to sports games especially. While some sports like running, cycling, and swimming are starting in many areas, interactive sports games are still not advised. We are hoping within the next 30 days a phased transition to interactive sports games will resume, but only time will tell.
In the meantime, the team here at Skwim International is working hard at helping game play internationally, by developing a new goal scoring system that is easier to use, lower cost, faster and cheaper to ship, and more versatile in both pool and open-water play. Our new Foam Goal Skwim System will be available soon from eLifeguard.com. In fact, you can get a preview of the Foam Skwim Goals https://www.elifeguard.com/skwim-recreational-goal-2-pack on the eLIfeguard site today and place an early order for later summer delivery. Or you can check out a prototype on Instagram @skwiminternational Also, if you want to get your lifeguards and community involved in Skwim Skills early, you can visit www.redcross.org/store where you can find Skwim Disks https://www.redcross.org/store/skwim-disc-flying-floating-water-toy/760048.html and Skwim Fins directly from the American Red Cross.

Coach Kevin :)
