Empire Swimming is a competitive swim club and member of USA Swimming and the Metropolitan Swimming Local Swim Committee (LSC).  Empire was formed to serve competitive swimmers ages six and up in the Metropolitan Tri-State area.  Empire has a current roster of approximately 270 swimmers between the ages of 6 and collegiate.

Empire utilizes three training facilities, all within a manageable commute from most locations in the Tri-State area.  Our swimmers in our developmental group (ages 6-8) swim, our age group (ages 9-12) and our Xcel senior group  (12/over) have the option of training at either the Masters School in Dobbs Ferry, the Hackley School in Tarrytown, NY, or Purchase College in Purchase, NY.  Our elite Xtreme senior group (13/over) makes its home at Ardsley Middle School in Ardsley, NY.  

Our coaching staff has over fifty years of combined coaching experience, led by Head Coach Ilan Noach (ASCA Level V) and supported by Cheryl Blenk, Jay Porteus, Brian Hansbury, Kristen Norrgard, Claire O'Reilly, Anne Budlong, Tony Mugno, Lara Holzman, Rachel Noach, Jeremy Storm, Lorena Peralta, and Maureen O'Sullivan.

Mission & Philosophy

Through unparalleled coaching, training and preparation, Empire athletes will succeed in and out of the water by continually challenging themselves to achieve personal bests, take it to the next level, and achieve their goals. Our philosophy is "if you work hard, good things will happen."
