The UBC Masters Swim Club is a non-profit organization with a volunteer board of directors. Members can participate in coach run swim practices, organized by our head coach Mitchell Bourne, as often as five days per week in the fall and winter and four times in the summer. Our members are a diverse group of students, academics, professionals and retirees whose interests range from simply participating in occasional swim workouts to members who use it as the foundation for organized competition.
