About Team New York Aquatics

TNYA was founded in 1990 in preparation for Gay Games III in Vancouver. We welcome swimmers of every ability, sexual orientation, race, creed, status, and age (although you must be over 19, in keeping with US Masters regulations). Our membership now numbers over 500 swimmers, water-polo players, and divers of all levels of experience. Many swimmers swim for fitness alone, challenging themselves in workouts by swimming against their own best times. Many others challenge their goals through rigorous competition, by regularly attending swim meets with the team. With our excellent coaching staff (all of whom are team members themselves), all swimmers receive individual attention and encouragement. Please join us! As a member, you can attend any of our numerous weekly workouts. Anyone with questions is welcome to get in touch with us; for specifics, see our contacts page. For more information about our water polo team, see our water polo page. For more information about our diving team, see our diving page.

TNYA and its coaching and managerial staff operate according to bylaws (PDF) approved by our membership. We require our membership to follow our anti-harassment policy.
