The English Bay Swim Club is Vancouver's LGBTQ masters swim team. We are all-inclusive, welcoming LGBTQ and LGBTQ-friendly swimmers into the pool since 1982. EBSC encourages Trans* and Gender-Variant swimmers to come join us. With more than 130 active members, we are the largest Masters swim club in British Columbia and we are once again the Provincial Champions! Whether swimming for fitness or competition, we always have fun!

Our Mission

"..is to promote and support participation in swimming amongst members of the LGBTQ community and our friends, and to uphold the Masters philosophy of fun, friendship and fitness for life, in an environment that is safe, positive and socially active."

Interested in joining us?

Check out the "Join" page and found out how you can join in the fun!

UBC Swim Meet

The meet is next weekend, Sunday November 22nd, and it's in our own backyard - at UBC pool. We always have fun at this meet.. especially at the "Final Event" (the local campus pub across the street after the meet) with door prizes and complimentary appetizers provided by UBC. Last year lucky EBSC swimmers took the lion's share of the really cool door prizes! Warmup starts at 9:30, with events starting at 10:30. The meet usually wraps up by about 3:00. We have 23 EBSC swimmers registered as of this morning.

Come join your EBSC friends for a day of swimming, socializing, and coaching! It doesn't matter if you've never been to a swim meet before, or if you are a grizzled meet veteran, we would love to have you out.
