The May Center for Health, Fitness & Sports offers one of the finest swimming facilities in New York City. Our 25-yard pool is primarily used for recreational aquatics activities and is the first commercial indoor pool in New York State to be primarily disinfected by ozone.
The youngest of our swimmers, Polliwogs (6-18 months), enjoy singing and moving through the water. Parents continue to play an integral role in the Minnows (18-36 months) toddler swim classes as the instruction starts to shift to a child-centered approach.
Guppies (3-5 years), which is similar to Minnows classes, is a perfect fit for children who are new to the aquatics environment. Nursery School Swim (3 1/2-5 years) is a perfect class for children who are beginner swimmers. Private instruction is offered for ages three and up as well.
Our children's program follows the nationally accredited American Red Cross curriculum. Accomplished swimmers ages six and up are encouraged to tryout for our competitive swim team (Flying Dolphins Swim Team). We also offer advanced Learn-to-Swim classes: Stroke Refinement (8-11 years) and Fitness Swimmer (9-14 years).
We have a complete adult Aquatics program for every level. You can overcome your fear of the water in our Water Fear Wash Away classes, learn to control breathing and navigate the deep end in the Beginner Swim Group, improve your strokes in Deep Water classes and get a great workout in the Perfect Strokes class. We also offer private lessons and private coaching sessions. For those who want to workout with friends, we offer private small group classes that can accommodate busy schedules.
