Harbor Seals Mini Camps

Swimming takes place in deep water; for swimmers already involved in competitive swimming. Offered end of July/early August.

Develop your skills, stamina and stroke technique in an abbreviated nine-day version of the Harbor Seals Camps.
Current Harbor Seal coaches and former Harbor Seals with Water Safety Instructor certification explain essentials of the four competitive strokes and conduct drills designed to improve stroke technique. Daily (weekday) sessions enhance technique in front crawl (freestyle), back crawl (backstroke), breaststroke and butterfly. Racing starts and turn technique for the four competitive strokes are also covered.

Terms & Conditions

Please make checks out to BRAINS.

Please note:

The FHHS pool is a competition pool, not a bathing pool - water temperature is cool. BRAINS does not offer refunds for variations in temperature or condition of the water or facility. Maintenance of the FHHS pool facility is performed by a private company under contract with the NYC Department of Education and is not, in any way, under the control of the Bay Ridge Aquatics Institute, Inc.

No refunds. Applicant is responsible for the total fee since acceptance to the program is offered to a limited number of candidates. All teaching costs, security and  permit fees must be paid for whether classes are attended or not, therefore BRAINS cannot offer make-up classes, credits or refunds for any classes you may miss. In the event that a class is cancelled we will, at our option, either schedule a make-up or offer a refund or credit for the number of classes cancelled. Exceptions: If major illness or serious complications make it impossible for the registrant to attend classes, we will make every effort to fill the remaining classes with another participant. Should such circumstances arise and we can fill the slot, while we are not obligated to do so, we will consider your request for a refund or credit. Please note that a processing fee of $25 will be applied to any refunds granted. If you are seeking such consideration, you must submit this request in writing along with doctor's notes and/or any other proof needed.

Transfers: Any transfer requests not initiated by BRAINS must be accompanied by payment of a $15 transfer processing fee.

Payment at Registration

Pool Status:

CLOSED  FOR RENOVATION (June Through December)

Advisory :

The Fort Hamilton High School pool is undergoing renovation expected to run from June through December, 2017. This project was originally scheduled to occur last year, but was postponed. Because of this project BRAINS will not be registering students for summer programs this year. Please check back for any updates to see if and when any classes might be offered this fall / winter.

For Current BRAINS Program Enrollees:

If you or your child were enrolled in a Spring 2017 BRAINS program and wish to re-enroll once your program is again available, please know that we will be reaching out to you by the email address you put on your registration form to provide you with a priority registration opportunity. We will also post this information on the BRAINS website once we are able to again offer programs at Fort Hamilton High School. Once the priority registration period ends registration will be available only as space allows.

In order to register for any of BRAINS' classes, payment in full must be made at the time of enrollment. We will not hold spots or accept registration forms without full payment.  (Completed registration form must be signed by a parent or guardian if the student is a minor.)
