Information for new swimmers


Hi, thanks for your interest!

We are a masters swim club that has been around for over 40 years. We welcome anyone who is at least 18 years old and fully vaccinated. Although we don't have formal requirements, to enjoy the practice you should be able to swim 1000-1500m in an hour and 100m in less than 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

We swim 4 times per week at UBC Aquatic Center. Our Calendar shows the exact times and dates of our practices. Our fees are outlined here. We prorate fees according to when you join. We do not expect or require you to attend practice. You can come to any or all of the practices. We don't have student rates or drop in swims. 

We currently have a waiting list for September. We are happy to offer up to three trial swims in a two week period before you decide to register with us. This is just for you to assess our club, not for us to test your swimming abilities! We do not issue a refund once the session is in progress. 

Contact us if you want to do a trial swim and/or be placed on the waitlist.

Prior to Your First Practice

Before you attend your first swim practice you will need to read through the practice etiquette. At your first swim practice please introduce yourself to the coaches. They will help you pick the best lane and, as necessary, explain the work out.
