Our Mission

TNYA is an inclusive community of aquatics athletes in the greater New York City area that welcomes adults (18 years of age and older) of every ability, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, nationality, and creed. We believe aquatic sports are for everyone.

Pool space in NYC doesn’t come cheap, and the current economic climate means some of our community finds swimming hard to afford. Team New York Aquatics, however, is committed to making it possible for LGBT New Yorkers to enjoy the athleticism and community that the team offers. We offer the Fortoul Fellowship, a grant program named in the memory of our beloved coach Paul Fortoul, to cover the cost of our programs for members who cannot afford them. The Fortoul Fellowship is supported entirely by donations. Your support can also help swimmers afford competition at the local and international levels, such as the every-four-years Gay Games and the annual International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics Championships.
