TNYA is an inclusive community of aquatics athletes that welcomes adults of every ability, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, nationality, and creed. We believe aquatic sports are for everyone. No matter your level of experience – from learning to swim to building your confidence in the pool to competition-level training – and no matter your aquatic sport of choice – swimming, water polo, diving (presently in abeyance) or artistic swimming (aka synchronized swimming) – we have a practice, and a community, for you!

In addition to regularly training together in practices and workouts in Manhattan and Brooklyn, we also have various special events and social gatherings including open water swimming opportunities in the summer. We have a seasoned group of coaches that has experience working with athletes of every level of ability and experience (and are always looking for more coaches to join us!). For more information about joining our team, visit our membership page here.

Since our 1990 founding in preparation for the Gay Games III in Vancouver, we have been proud to be a part of the LGBTQ+ and aquatics community in New York City. We are a founding member of IGLA, the international LGBTQ+ aquatics federation, and are a local athletic organizational member of U.S. Masters Swimming, USA Water Polo, and U.S. Artistic Swimming.

We look forward to seeing you in the pool!
