Recreational Swim Team


Serving communities, schools, organizations, teams, and individuals throughout Western NY, Velocity Aquatics is dedicated to providing the best swim instruction services to non, new, and experienced swimmers of all ages and abilities via group lessons, private instruction, camps, clinics, and other programming.

Our Mission: To develop champions in life through a commitment to excellence in sport.

For more advanced swimmers, Velocity Aquatics offers a Recreational / Non-Competitive Swim Program as well as a transitional team for those looking to make the move to Velocity.     

Here we will provide swimmers a unique opportunity to be coached by experienced Coaches and participate with others with similar abilities and goals. During the practices, proper stroke mechanics and race skills for all four strokes (Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Freestyle) are taught and reinforced while overall fitness levels are developed both in the water and on land. The use of video as a teaching tool is introduced, as are other teaching tools (fins, etc.). Swimmers also participate in fun water games and other team building activities designed to foster friendships, teamwork and confidence.

For some, this program serves as a bridge between a lesson program and our competitive swim club or a school team. For others, it is simply the perfect opportunity to remain active and involved in the wonderful sport of swimming!
