Asphalt Green has something for everyone, from those just starting their fitness journey to athletes at the highest level of competition. We believe everyone deserves access to sports, fitness, and play opportunities and we are here to help you achieve a more active and healthier lifestyle—whatever that looks like for you.
We believe everyone deserves the chance to be a part of our team. That's why we work so hard to make our sports, fitness, and play offerings accessible to all.
Through programs like our community sports leagues and celebrated Recess Enhancement Program (REP), we bring sports and fitness opportunities to nearly 50,000 children and adults annually in schoolyards, gymnasiums, community centers, and pools across New York City. We also provide scholarships for our fee-based programs and offer adaptive programming so that people of all abilities can enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle.
Our decades-long commitment to keeping people safe in the water includes our Waterproofing program, Safe Swim NYC initiative, and newly launched Wave Makers program. We've taught over 100,000 people to swim and given away over $40m in free swim lessons—and we're just getting started!
Asphalt Green’s mission is made possible by a unique combination of revenue from our fee-for-service programs, philanthropic support from individuals and foundations, and discretionary funding from our partners in local government.
