Canada Artistic Swimming Canada (CAS) is pleased to announce that Victoria, British Columbia, has been selected to host the first two events of the 2025 Canadian artistic swimming national calendar, the National Qualifier and the Canadian University League (CUASL) Championships.

The 2025 National Qualifier will be held at Saanich Commonwealth Place in Victoria from March 16 to 22, 2025. Hosted in partnership with BC Artistic Swimming and Victoria Artistic Swimming, the event is expected to welcome over 450 athletes from the youth (13-15), junior, and senior categories from across Canada who will compete for spots in the Canadian Championships taking place later in May.

“The Victoria Artistic Swimming club, its athletes, coaches, and community are thrilled to have been chosen as the host club for the 2025 National Qualifier,” said Brenda Scott, head coach of the club.

“We look forward to supporting not only the athletes from our club but also all the athletes from across the country who will compete to secure their place in the Canadian National Championships. It will be an amazing celebration of talent, dedication and sportsmanship. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to Victoria and cheer on all the athletes in their quest for excellence.”

CAS is also very proud to confirm that it will continue its partnership with the Canadian University Artistic Swimming League (CUASL) and will hold the 2025 CUASL Canadian Championships at the same location in Victoria from March 21 to 23. This will be the third edition of the competition held in partnership between the university league and CAS. Over 230 athletes participated in each of the first two editions in Markham (2023) and Winnipeg(2024).

This will mark the return of a national event to the Commonwealth Place exactly 10 years after its last edition in March 2015, when the 3rd edition of Synchro Canada’s National Qualifiers took place there.

“We look forward to working with our partners at BCAS and the host club in Victoria to make this competition a success,” said Stéphane Côté, CAS Senior Director of Business Development. “We’d like to thank our host partners for their collaboration and partnership, as well as the Greater Victoria Sport Tourism Commission for their invaluable support.”
