New Fall Schedule & New Water Polo Beginners Clinic

Our practices and clinics have a new schedule starting on Labor Day (September 6). We will continue to offer speed swimming at Sacred Heart on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and LPZ (our intermediate swim clinics) at Sacred Heart on Tuesdays, but at a later time. We will also continue to offer water polo at Seahorse Fitness on Wednesdays, and artistic swimming at Seahorse Fitness on Mondays. We will also offer speed swimming at Sacred Heart on Saturdays. This fall, we are introducing our new Water Polo Beginners’ Clinics on Wednesdays at Seahorse Fitness. For details about our fall schedule, see our practice schedule calendar. Trial memberships are available if you are trying our the aquatic discipline for the first time, even for members trying our new aquatic disciplines. If you are interested in a trial membership, see our membership registration page for details. Financial aid is also available through our Paul Fortoul Fellowship Program.

Unfortunately, at this time, our other pools that hosted our practices and clinics immediately before COVID lockdown last year, (Baruch College, Columbia University & Long Island University) have not yet reopened for outside rentals. John Jay College has not yet reopened for outside rentals either. We are searching for other pools to expand our practice and clinic offerings while we await the reopening of these pools to outside rentals. We will update our website when we have more information on more offerings. If you have any questions or concerns about our new fall schedule, contact us at: mail@tnya.org

COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate

Please note that the city has mandated COVID-19 vaccination for all participants in our programs. In compliance with New York City guidelines, all members must show proof of vaccination to participate in TNYA practices and clinics. Proof of vaccination must be shown to the gatekeeper at the beginning of every practice and clinic. Proof can be provided in the form of a New York State Excelsior Pass or your CDC vaccination card (original, photocopy or photo). Any medical exceptions must receive prior authorization from the board. Any person receiving such exemption must remain masked at all times while not physically in the water. Thank you for your hard work keeping TNYA compliant with city guidelines. For general information about the city’s guidelines, visit their website. If you have any questions or concerns about the vaccination mandate, contact us at: mail@tnya.org

TNYA is very excited about our potential partnership with Brooklyn Bedford-Union Armory. The facility is located in Crown Heights and is 0.25 miles away from the subway station at Franklin Avenue-Medgar Evers College (2/3/4/5 & Franklin Avenue Shuttle at Eastern Parkway). This week we received an update from pool management. The tentative opening date of the facility is September 20th.
