All About PMA
The Port Moody Aquarians began in the summer of 1970. The club has steadily grown in membership, and provides swimming opportunities to all youths in the Tri-Cities of Port Moody, Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam. We have been very fortunate to have maintained a good relationship with the City of Port Moody. We train out of two outdoor pools, Westhill and Rocky Point. Swimmers in all groups have scheduled practices at both of these facilities. As a club we also host several key meets that are well-attended by swim clubs from all over the province. We are renowned for our “Golden Spikes” and our wonderful concession where the best in summer fare is served!
The Port Moody Aquarians is a non-profit organization. We strive to keep our fees affordable; and therefore, we rely on our membership to assist us acquire the funds needed to run our programs to the best of our abilities. We believe in supporting the children with the best coaching available and we believe in forming a strong team spirit. We believe that our swimmers should look good in and out of the water and we encourage swimmers to wear their club suits, T-shirts and hang out together in the team tent.
A parent-volunteer Executive Board oversees the running of the club. We are registered under the BC Societies Act. Constitution and Bylaws are in place to govern how we operate. A copy of the Bylaws is available from the Executive.
