PCS swimmers range in experience from our youngest beginners to high performance international athletes. We are proudly affiliated with the University of Victoria Vikes Swim Program through the University of Victoria – Pacific Coast Swimming Association (UVPCS).

It is designed primarily for 3 to 10 year olds who want to learn to swim with confidence, gain endurance and improve stroke technique. The series is designed by our award winning Pacific Coast Swimming Coaches and is an innovative skills-based swimming program designed to be mastered quickly by young children.
