Dive into Volunteering with BC Artistic Swimming

Without volunteers, BC Artistic Swimming wouldn’t be able to bring this unique sport to communities throughout the province.

Jennifer Keith | Executive Director, BCAS

BC Artistic Swimming (BCAS) isn’t just about synchronized swimming; it’s a passionate community of individuals across British Columbia committed to nurturing the sport and athletes. This volunteer-driven organization unites over 200 volunteers each season to support 1,000 athletes. BCAS envisions an inclusive and accessible sport community that inspires excellence while instilling ethical values and fostering social responsibility.

How do you help the community and what services do you offer them?

BCAS offers a range of programs catering to athletes of all ages and abilities, from Adaptive and AquaGO! programs to competitive opportunities, including participation in prestigious events like the Canada Summer Games. Aligning with the Canada Artistic Swimming Long-Term Athlete Development Framework, BCAS introduces physical literacy and athlete development at all levels.

Beyond athletes, BCAS supports coaches, officials, and clubs through various programs and educational opportunities.

How do volunteers make a difference at BCAS?

Volunteers are the lifeblood of BCAS. Every facet of the organization, from clubs and competitions to events and governance, relies on volunteers. They operate with a volunteer Board of Directors and committees, and each of their 16 clubs is governed by a volunteer Club Executive. Officials and event volunteers also play a crucial role, ensuring the sport thrives in communities across BC.

Without volunteers, BC Artistic Swimming wouldn’t be able to bring this unique sport to communities throughout the province.
