In 2018, Canada Artistic Swimming adopted a new brand with the essence forging unity through diversity. We recognized our sport began as a safe place for young women to experience a wonderful sport opportunity, but times have changed and so must the sport. CAS is committed to making our sport diverse, both here in Canada and internationally. It all begins with education and a promise to do better.

As we continue on our journey, we will continually update this page with resources, training opportunities and information.
