The Big Swim

Celebrate the joy of swimming at The Big Swim! The Big Swim is a free swim meet and fundraising benefit that supports Asphalt Green's FIT KIDS FIT CITY campaign. This year, Asphalt Green's FIT KIDS FIT CITY campaign will transform the lives of 30,000 New York City kids through sports and fitness, including our Waterproofing program. Waterproofing offers free swim instruction and water safety training to NYC public schoolchildren.

The Big Swim Meet

  • Asphalt Green welcomes NYC kids (ages 6 to 12) to experience the thrill of diving off the blocks in our Olympic pool in an organized and friendly swim race. (We expect more than 1,000 kids to register!)
  • Kids meet Olympians and elite athletes from the swimming and diving world.
  • All swimmers receive a finisher medal, The Big Swim swimming cap, and a souvenir t-shirt. (Everyone's a winner at The Big Swim!)

The Big Swim Benefit

  • The Big Swim Benefit welcomes board members, sponsors, and donors to attend a family-friendly fundraiser.
  • Benefit guests watch an Olympic Exhibition featuring synchronized diving, synchronized swimming, AGUA swimmers, and graduates of the Waterproofing program.
  • Benefit guests can meet and mingle with our featured athletes at a tented luncheon.
  • Kids attending The Big Swim Benefit are invited to make crafts, play sports and games on the field, and meet The Big Swim mascot Shecky the Shark.
