The Canadian University Artistic Swimming League can now be found on the OAS website!

The Canadian University Artistic Swimming League (CUASL) is an excellent way to keep our athletes involved in the artistic swimming community as they start their post-secondary education. We are happy to announce that information about the Canadian University Artistic Swimming League can now be found on the OAS website!

We are hoping to keep all of our athletes connected to the sport as they start a new chapter in their lives. Using the survey below, we are collecting information from the class of 2020. We will use this information to alert nearby clubs and university teams across Canada that potential athletes and coaches will be in the area.

This summer has been jam packed with virtual competitions!  

We had a busy couple of months with a series of qualifying rounds for the UANA Online Artistic Swimming competition. We made history as we watched  57 athletes from 12 different clubs compete in our first-ever virtual competition. Athletes first qualified within their clubs, then moved on to the Ontario Artistic Swimming Workout Qualifier.

From there, 9 athletes were chosen to represent Ontario in the CAS Virtual Workout Challenge. We are proud of Nanxi (GO), Sofia (OSSC), Alyssa (CHACO) and Chris (OSSC), who represented Canada at the UANA Virtual Artistic Swimming Competition on June 20, 2020. We were thrilled to be able to watch our athletes compete again. Thank you to all the coaches, athletes and officials who helped make these events so successful!
