Registration Open For Swim Strong

Swim Strong Foundation has opened registration for another season of affordable swim lessons for all levels and ages. Lessons are held throughout New York City, including two sites in the city’s most diverse borough of Queens : Flushing Meadows Aquatic Center and Far Rockaway High School.

The spring season will offer sessions on Tuesday nights from 7:30- 9:30 pm, and Saturday mornings from 8-10:30 at Flushing Meadow Aquatic Center. We are excited to add to our programs at Far Rockaway High School on Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm as well as Saturdays from 11a-1:30pm.

Swim Strong Foundation’s work and participants are as diverse as the borough in which they are located. Currently, over 500 youth, children and adults learn skills from proper breathing skills and water safety to competitive stroke development. Participants of all backgrounds are welcome—some swimmers this season are struggling with learning English as a second language or with learning disabilities. Yet, all participants come to learn the same strokes, and the same values of competitive swimming: goal setting, self-discipline and team work.
