About Us

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

Velocity Aquatics offers both a non-competitive recreational program as well as a competitive USA swim club.

After advancing to the top levels of our swim lessons, the recreational team  is the  perfect opportunity for young swimmers to remain active and involved in the wonderful sport of swimming. It also serves as a bridge between our lesson program and our competitive swim club.

The competitive team is a year-round, national goal-oriented swim club offering professional, full-time coaching and an environment designed to assist swimmers in achieving their full potential. Unlike the majority of USA swim cubs, the team is coach owned & coach operated. This structure allows the club to maintain a focused and consistent long-term vision without burdening its members with all of the responsibilities of day-to-day operations. Within it's short existence, Velocity Aquatics has rapidly grown to become one of the top swim programs in Western New York.


Michael Phelps Swimming (MPS) is a learn-to-swim program for ALL ages and abilities! Many of our club swimmers have been developed with these swim classes, which focus on personal safety, stroke development, water sports and games, personal growth, and rescue skills. The top priority of the MPS curriculum is to insure that each participant has an opportunity to become comfortable, confident and safe in and around the water.  

In Buffalo, MPS also serves as a developmental program for the Velocity Aquatics Recreational Program & competitive USA Swim Club.  

“I was first introduced to the sport of swimming through the very same water safety instruction we offer at the Michael Phelps Swim School, and am proud to now be in a position where we can make this great programming available to even more people through the affiliation with Velocity Aquatics.”
