Annual Membership Dues

To join our team, you must pay annual membership dues to the team directly, and purchase a membership from one of the governing bodies for masters aquatics competition.

TNYA Annual Membership

The joining fee for TNYA is $75; this fee goes towards the Team’s general operating expenses and is not refundable. TNYA membership automatically renews each year at the end of January until cancelled; the renewal fee is also $75.

A 30-day Free Trial Membership is available, which includes two (2) practices.

Join or renew TNYA Membership using MINDBODY.

GOVERNING BODY Membership

In order to practice with Team New York Aquatics, you need to be a member of the national body for your sport — US Masters Swimming, USA Diving, USA Water Polo, or USA Artistic Swimming. The annual fees for these organizations vary. Each of them also offer a free trial membership.

Validation of governing body membership is required to purchase practices.

Our pools permit us to rent and utilize their facilities based on the assumption that everyone is registered with a national body of the sport, which provides our insurance coverage. Please keep your memberships up to date and renew it regularly. Your membership must be validated on your MINDBODY account once per year to attend practice.

Practice Fees

All practice fees and subscriptions must be purchased on MINDBODY; you can do so on our Join TNYA page.

Pay-Per-Practice Passes

For maximum flexibility, you may pay for each practice as you go with a practice pass. The per-practice fee is $33 per practice, regardless of sport. Practice passes are sport-specific, except that speed swim practice passes may be used for LPZ and vice versa.

We also offer, for speed swimming/LPZ only, a 5-practice pass for a discounted $135 (or $27 per practice).

Practice passes uniformly expire 24 months after purchase.

MONTHLY Subscription PLANS

We also currently are offering the following monthly subscription plans. Subscriptions provide superior value for regular attendees and help support the team. All subscriptions may be used for all sports.

The table below sets out a notional per-practice rate for each subscription option assuming you were to attend the specified number of practices per week (and, for unlimited, 4 practices per week).

Subscriptions are “use it (within the week) or lose it“. A week begins on Monday and ends Sunday. Subscriptions renew each month until cancelled.

Subscribers should be aware that scheduled practice numbers vary each month depending on public holidays and pool maintenance. We do our best to post all schedule adjustments on our Mindbody schedule at least one month in advance but do not provide rebates or refunds if the scheduled number of practices in one month is different to the scheduled number in another month. For more details, please see our Participation Agreement.

Financial AID

Swimmers in need of financial assistance are encouraged to apply for a Paul Fortoul Fellowship. This Fellowship was created for those who could not otherwise afford participation. Please apply!
