Aquatics director (founder)


our mission


Tommy Ho was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He began his career as a part time swim instructor while studying at the University of Mississippi pursuing his Bachelor in Business Marketing. His passion for swimming brought him to New York City where he worked as the Assistant Aquatics Director at the McBurney YMCA for seven years. During this time, he acquired certifications in lifeguard training, CPR and First Aid. He is also a Water Safety Instructor and a member of the United States Swim School Association.

In 2003, Tommy Ho founded Seahorse Fitness Inc. and launched his own learn-to-swim program. His love of teaching children was met with great success and the over whelming interest has resulted with the founding of a bigger and better place to support his further growth. Today, his lifelong dream has come true: his very own swimming facility

At Seahorse Swim Club, our mission is :

  • To create a community where people of all ages (infants, kids, teens, adults, and seniors) can learn to swim; taught by certified swimming instructors who are multilingual.
  • To help a child find and develop a comfort level in and around the water.
  • To promote full enjoyment in a safe and positive environment.
  •  Promote water safety knowledge and practices.
  • To teach a child progressive swim skills using correct and appropriate techniques to become an accomplished swimmer.
