Mission Statement

The Manhattan Makos Swim Team is committed to the enlightened pursuit of aquatic excellence. While pursuing optimal performance in the water, Makos coaches seek to provide well-rounded intellectual, emotional, and physical growth. The Makos are the competitive branch of Imagine Swimming, New York City's finest - and largest - learn-to-swim school. As such, the club's core beliefs are fostered through children's earliest lessons, with competitive swimming being the destination for young athletes who exhibit the talent and passion for the sport.
