If you are a competitive swimmer and are looking for a great place to get in your sets, or a triathlete/open water swimmer needing to get in some serious yardage for your upcoming event, look no further than the NYC Hydras.  Maybe you are looking to swimming for fitness. Want to feel like you are part of a community of fun, hard working people?  We have room for you.  If you are a swim snob who insists on bullying other swimmers in your lane, I'm sure you can find room at another club.  At the NYC Hydras, we are about supporting each other.  Building each other up so we all become better.  We foster an inclusive environment of teamwork and healthy attitudes.  Just be ready and willing to work hard!
