Victoria Amateur Swim Club - 1913 - 2003

The Victoria Amateur Swimming Club has built a legacy that no community club can match. The club recognized its 90th anniversary in 1993 and celebrated decades of providing top-quality instruction and a competitive environment for young swimmers. Founded in 1913, the club began in outdoor facilities on the Gorge. It moved to the new, heated, salt-water pool at the Crystal Garden in 1925 and hosted many high level meets over the following 46 years. Renamed the Victoria Olympians they moved to Victoria Crystal Pool in 1971 and to Commonwealth Place in 1993. The club has seen seven of its athletes qualify for the Olympics and continues to be a force as a member club of Island Swimming.
