Swimming Fund


We Need Your Support
This season, the women’s swim team is primed to secure their 25th-consecutive conference championship this season, while the men are going after their 32nd AUS championship title in program history, with an eye on some personal best performances at the national championships. The swim teams aim to raise $10,000 to support exhibition travel. There are a number of meets scheduled for the season to help prepare them for a run at back-to-back AUS conference championship titles. Your donation will help the teams to gain more practice time in the pool and achieve their goals this season.

About Our Teams
Over the years Dalhousie’s men’s swimming program has established a tradition of excellence well known in Atlantic University Sport (AUS) and U SPORTS, most recently captured their 31st AUS championship at the end of the 2022-23 season. Many of the student-athletes who have been a part of the black and gold swim team have recorded outstanding finishes to earn medals at the conference and national levels in addition to AUS all-star and U SPORTS all-Canadian honours.

The women’s swimming program has been crowned Atlantic University Sport (AUS) champions 37 times since the program’s inception including their 24th consecutive title in the 2022-23 season. Their record has allowed them to become known as a fierce competitor and high-level program in the AUS and U SPORTS. Athletes on this team have been recognized as AUS all-stars and/or U SPORTS all-Canadians for incredible finishes in the pool, as well as Academic all-Canadians for exceptional work in their academic programs.

Numerous swimmers have also been recognized for their excellence in the classroom as U SPORTS Academic all-Canadians.
