One Club with four sports. Cruisers offers training and coaching in Speed Swimming, Synchronized Swimming, Water Polo and Diving, as well as a variety of social activities and a winter conditioning program, called “Maintenance”.
The Cruisers Aquatics Club has actively promoted swimming and related sports on the North Shore since 1971. The club is a non-profit organization that is a member of the British Columbia Summer Swimming Association (BCSSA). Our season begins May 1st and ends with the Provincial Championships in mid-August. Our purpose is to provide training and competition in an environment that encourages fun, sportsmanship, team spirit, and achieving your personal best. Children as well as parents are sure to develop friendships, have lots of fun, and create lasting lifelong memories.
All Cruisers members are entitled to sign up for and participate in one or more of the aquatics sports offered through the club; however, most swimmers choose a couple of sports so that they can attend practices regularly.
Speed swimmers practice in groups where they focus on refining their competitive strokes, starts, and turns. Emphasis is placed on building endurance and strength, developing good technique, and developing confidence at swim meets through team unity and support from coaches and other athletes. Cruisers coaches encourage training for competition and welcome cross-training and conditioning for other sports. Speed swimming practice groups are determined by age, ability, at the discretion of the coaches.
Synchronized swimmers train throughout the season, choreographing and perfecting routines, as well as working on the technical aspects of the sport called "figures".
In the diving program, beginner and advanced divers can attend one to three practices per week. Diving is considered to be an art as well as a sport, and all participants have an opportunity to develop a broad range of athletic, artistic, and personal qualities.
Water Polo is more or less like soccer, combined with a little basketball. Unlike these sports, it is played in the water. There are three or four practices per week for each age group. Athletes have opportunities to play in a number of tournaments all over the Lower Mainland throughout the May-August season.
