Swim with the Best: Join a Parks Swim Team

July 5 – August 10, 2018

NYC Parks offers talented youths between the ages of 6 and 18 an opportunity to join a Parks swim team. Learn competitive swimming strokes, starts, and turns. Develop swimming skills, knowledge of rules, and sportsmanship, and participate in citywide and championship swim meets.

Practice sessions are held at least twice a week. Practices emphasize stroke technique, endurance and speed training, starts and turns, and rules and sportsmanship. Swimmers train for the Five Borough Swimming Championship, which will be held at Hamilton Fish Pool in Manhattan on Saturday, August 11.

Cost

Participation is free.

Registration

Youths between the ages of 6 and 18 may try out for the team. In order to qualify for the team, you must be capable of swimming freestyle (crawl stroke) a minimum distance of 25 meters in reasonably good form. All participants are required to submit a completed application and a copy of their birth certificate before trying out.

How to Apply

Registration for the summer 2018 swim team begins on Thursday, July 5. Registration will take place in person on a first-come, first-served basis at the pool during training days and times only.
