About Us

Passionate about swimming, we are a club formed under the umbrella of the Masters Swim Association of BC.

The Ebbtides were formed in 1980 with just 14 members with Lois Walkling (Gonyer) as the founding coach.
We now have close to 60 members ages from 19-76, some who have been with the club for over 30 years. We provide pool time and coaching for recreational and competitive swimmers.

We have hosted a swim meet every year for 33 years and encourage all swimmers to try this meet especially if they have never swam in a meet before. Swim meets bring together swimmers supporting and encouraging each other creating a team environment. Participation in Masters Swim meets is optional but it is fun to earn points for the club and to see that training really does improve swim times.

Our club organizes socials so club members can get to know their fellow swimmers 'with their clothes on'. E-mail invitations are sent out to members.
Masters Swimming Canada hosts a Million Metre Challenge. Simply sign in and begin logging your workout distances on line.
