2018 TNYA SWIM CAMP

Some swimmers come to TNYA Swim Camp to prepare for meets later in the year, others come to get in “summer shape” and have a good time. Either way, Swim Camp is a great opportunity to meet new friends, enjoy the Florida sun, and most importantly to improve your swimming!

The Pool
Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Complex (aka Hall of Fame Pool) has both short course and long course lanes.

The Hotel
Granada Inn/La Casa Del Mar is giving us 15% off if you mention “Team New York Aquatics Swim Team”, there are many other hotel and VRBO options.

How to Register
Camp costs $425, this money pays for our pool rental, our amazing coaches, and our welcome brunch.

What to Expect

  • The first practice is on Sunday, March 18th at 3pm. We will have some recommended lanes but these can be adjusted depending on how hard you want to push yourself (in either direction).
  • Monday through Friday will be “two-a-days”, with a practice in the morning and a practice in the early evening. You’ll have time to grab a long lunch and check-out the beach, or nap, on most days.
  • Camp always has a selection of different social events, like our team brunch, a night out at Rosie’s Bar & Grill, and other gatherings.
  • Looking to add more speed to your killer backstroke? Or maybe you want to finally learn how to swim butterfly the right way? We’ll have a clinic for you

IGLA 2017: Miami Swimming Follow-Up

IGLA Members recently learned the swimming times from the IGLA Championships in Miami will not count toward USMS Top Ten consideration due to the inadvertent misplacement of the bulkhead during the competition.  This is an unfortunate end-note to an otherwise successful IGLA Championships, which we held despite the debacle that was Outgames Miami.  The IGLA Board would like to thank the Miami Nadadores Swim Team of South Florida and the newly formed Miami Vice Water Polo Team for the countless hours of hard work that they volunteered.

As many of you may know, the IGLA membership awarded the IGLA 2017 Championships to the Outgames at its 2015 Annual Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden.  By the summer of 2016, the IGLA Board became increasingly concerned with the Outgames’ ability to run a successful IGLA Championships.  After the aquatics coordinator for the Outgames quit the organization, the Nadadores graciously stepped up to organize the IGLA Championships on short notice.  The Nadadores and the IGLA Board worked diligently in the months leading up to the event to ensure that the IGLA Championships would take place and were financially protected.  This included securing advanced payment from Outgames for all aquatics facilities, finding coordinators and volunteers for the competitions, and organizing IGLA social events such as the IGLA banquet.

On the eve of the event, the Outgames cancelled its planned opening and closing ceremonies and all sporting  events with the exception of aquatics, soccer, and country line dance.  An audit later revealed the mismanagement of the event by Outgames organizers.  Aquatics was the only sporting event at the Outgames that did not suffer significant hardship due to the mismanagement of the event—thanks to the Nadadores with help from the IGLA board.  For example, even though their event took place, the International Association of Gay and Lesbian Country Western Dance Clubs had to pay $45,000 at the last minute.

The IGLA Board continues to work closely with Paris Aquatique to ensure the integrity of Gay Games 10.  We are committed to working with future IGLA Championship host teams, building on lessons learned from Miami (and past IGLA events) to avoid a repeat of challenges experienced.  We are confident about the future of IGLA.  Thank you everyone who continues to support the IGLA Championships.

We can’t wait to see you all in Paris next year!
