"When it comes to swimming, it’s something I know how to do. But if you were to put me in my university’s swim practice for a day, I would absolutely be beat by the warmup. Personally, I think swimming is such a cool sport and I regret not continuing swim club and taking part in the sport in high school.


Bottle Drive - Thanks! and Reminder.



Thank you to all who were out for a beautiful morning in January to help out with the Bottle Drive. The drive netted the club $3900.00 toward keeping everything rolling through these strange and challenging times.

Reminder that ALL recyclable, bottles etc that can go to THE BOTTLE DEPOT can be donated to Pacific Coast Swimming. When you drop off recycables there tell the attendant that you would like the deposits to go to Pacific Coast Swimming... not PCS. (Other groups called PCS).


Covid Update Jan 2021

Members and future members! 

Covid 19 continues to create a liquid set of circumstances for all of us. We feel very fortunate that we have such a great group as members and that we have been able to continue to swim throughout much of the pandemic. You may not be aware but much of the rest of the Canadian Swim Community is faced with pool closures or heavier restrictions. Many have been out of the water for months.
