TNYA was founded by swimmers in 1990 in preparation for Gay Games III in Vancouver. We are an inclusive community of aquatics athletes that welcomes adults (18 years of age and older) of every ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, nationality, and creed. Since our founding, our membership has grown significantly to today include hundreds of swimmers, water polo players, divers, and synchronized swimmers of all levels of ability and experience.

In addition to regularly training together in practices and workouts in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, we also have various special events and social gatherings. We have an excellent professional coaching staff that has experience working with athletes of every level of ability and experience. For beginners, we sometimes offer clinics for learning fundamentals and improving skills. For advanced swimmers and experienced athletes, we have practices tailored to training for competition and conditioning. For more information about our team, visit our information page here.

We look forward to seeing you in the pool!
