Our Club

The Burnaby Mountain Mantas (BMM) Swim Club was founded in 1986 by a group of enthusiastic volunteers passionate about youth competitive summer swimming. BMM is a non-profit organization and is managed by volunteer parents and family members.

BMM prides itself on creating an inclusive and encouraging competitive environment, allowing swimmers to achieve their goals through tailored development and quality coaching. Attendance at swim meets is not compulsory, but highly recommended. Swim meets are a great way to motivate swimmers, gauge progress, and cultivate friendships.

Summer swimming begins May 1st and finishes with the Provincial Championships in August. Swim meets are almost every weekend in June and July. While the club will be at every meet, swimmers can pick and choose which swim meets to attend; you do no need to attend every meet. Summer season culminates in the annual Regional Championships in early August followed by the BCSSA Provincial Championships in mid-August. The Mantas also offer winter stroke improvement training from October to April 30.

The Mantas are affiliated with the British Columbia Summer Swimming Association (BCSSA) and its Simon Fraser Regional Office.

VISION

To develop a community of competitive swimmers motivated equally by sportsmanship and success.

MISSION
