Asphalt Green transforms lives and builds community through sports, fitness, and play for all.  

Asphalt Green is a not-for-profit organization that empowers athletes and fitness enthusiasts of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to live active and healthier lives. From toddlers making their first splash in the water, to Olympic athletes training for glory and older adults looking to stay active, we offer a diverse range of programs that provide our members with the tools and support they need to reach their goals. 

Today, Asphalt Green has also become New York City’s premier destination for youth athletics. Our AGUA swim team and Asphalt Green Soccer Club compete nationally and share a history of producing collegiate athletes and Olympic medalists. In addition, we offer recreational leagues and instructional classes for young athletes of all ages and skill levels.  

Most importantly, all our programs share the same standards of excellence and support our cause to deliver sports, fitness, and play to all.  

With the support of our community, Asphalt Green is building a world where everyone can experience the life-changing benefits of exercise. Sports, fitness, and play are proven to transform our physical and mental health and bring our communities closer together, but barriers to play are keeping too many people out of the game.  

Through our free and low-cost community programs, scholarships, swim school, sports leagues, and plenty more, we’re working hard to expand access to transformative sports, fitness, and play programs to bring our vision to life. 
Wherever you are on your fitness journey, we invite you to become a part of our team. We’ll work with you directly to achieve your dreams, and in doing so, you’ll help us achieve ours.
