HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PROGRAM FOR YOUR CHILD:
Please click on each of the tabs below to read what each category offers. When deciding which class to register your child in, try to match your child's current skill level with the level description. For example, if your child has little or no water experience, or is fearful in the water, you should register them in our Introduction to Water Skills class. If they are already water-safe and comfortable in deep water, you should register them in the Fundamental Aquatic Skills class. If they can swim 25 yards on their own, they are ready for our Pre-Competitive Swimming class. All swimmers are evaluated at their first class and placed in the appropriate group for their current skill level.

Empire Stroke Clinics, run by head coach Ilan Noach and members of the Empire Swimming staff, are open to ANYswimmers. These clinics are an excellent opportunity to spend focused, quality time on stroke technique, development, and refinement in a setting with a low coach to swimmer ratio. One day of the clinic is spent on starts & turns, and three days are spent on stroke technique focusing on:
Body Position and Balance - proper streamline, catch, head positioning, etc. for all four competitive strokes
Drills and Skills - various drills to improve technique and make strokes more efficient
Power and Speed - when to apply effort and at what part of the stroke to ensure the effectiveness of each stroke
