Metropolitan Swimming is the governing body for competitive swimming in the New York area. Most of the athletes who compete in Metro-sponsored swim meets are USA Swimming members under the age of 18.

The area that Metro covers is New York City, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, and Sullivan Counties in New York State with nearly 10,000 athlete members in 75 swim clubs. The level of competition across the clubs varies greatly, from recreational swimming to Olympians.

It maintains the imagery of the Twin Towers – that were destroyed on September 11th 2001 – on its swim caps and website as its official logo (see here).
