Registration is now open to current/past EBSC members. You should have received a BTLxTra on August 27 with the Karelo registration link! If you didn't, contact me (web@englishbay.org).

For those who are registered EBSC swimmers ONLY, you may now buy your swim pass on Karelo.

Swim Practice Updates

We start back at VAC Tuesday September 8th

Please arrive a bit earlier than usual, as there is a lot of admin to do at the first practice.

Remember to bring your signed waiver (2 pages) and proof of registration (your Karelo confirmation number) to present to the sign in desk.

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."
