Untitled document


The English Bay Swim Club is Vancouver's gay & lesbian masters swim team. We are all-inclusive, welcoming gay and gay-friendly swimmers into the pool since 1982. With more than 130 active members, we are among the largest clubs in British Columbia. Whether swimming for fitness or competition, we always have fun!


Hillcrest and UBC Masters Swimmers

While your pools are being maintained, you are welcome to purchase swim tickets with EBSC (more than one swimmer can use the same 10 ticket pass) and attend our 7PM practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as Saturdays 5PM and Sundays 10:15AM. You will need to provide us your MSABC number, and sign the EBSC waiver. Please come 20 minutes before practice time to sign-in and get any paperwork done! We look forward to seeing you! 


Our Mission

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