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.

For some, the Recreational 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!

The Velocity Aquatics Swim Club is a year-round, national goal oriented competitive USA Swim Club offering professional, full-time coaching and an environment designed to assist a swimmer in achieving their full potential.  Unlike the majority of USA Swim Clubs, Velocity Aquatics is Coach Owned & Coach Operated. Amongst other advantages, this structure allows Velocity Aquatics to maintain a focused and consistent long-term vision without burdening its members with alll the responsibilities of the day-to-day operations of the organization. Within it's short existence, Velocity Aquatics has rapidly grown to become one of the top programs in WNY.

For those interested in individualized Advanced Performance services, private instruction programs/swim clinics can be designed for swimmers to enhance their strengths and improve their weaknesses in order to maximize their success as swimmers.

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.”
