Founded in April 2019, the New York Breakers is New York's newest Professional Sports Club and a founding member of the new and transformative International Swimming League.


When the 2018 Energy for Swim meet was officially canceled, Michael Andrew felt compelled to act against FINA. He risked his career and became one of the three named plaintiffs in the class-action suit against FINA filed late last year. Michael fully understood the risk of possibly not being able to compete in the Tokyo Olympics.
After meeting Konstantin Grigorishin and further discussions at the 2018 ISL Summit in London, Konstantin offered Michael and his parents, Peter and Tina Andrew, the opportunity to start a pro team as part of the inaugural members of the International Swimming League as their passion and vision for the sport aligned.  
New York Breaker's passion lies in creating opportunities for pro swimmers to be able to make a living doing what they love and to earn an equitable share of the massive revenues generad in Olympic sports.

In 2020 Coach Don Wagner became a part of the NY Breakers coaching staff. He represented the team at 2020 ISL Championship in Budapest, Hungary.
