Welcome to the British Columbia Swim Coaches' Association (BCSCA). This website provides news and information that pertains to swimming coaches in BC. It also provides a forum for coaches to input their views on issues affecting our sport.

The BCSCA is the voice of swim coaches in BC. The association has voting representation on the Swim BC Board of Directors, Swim BC Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), and the Canadian Swimming Coaches & Teachers Association (CSCTA).
