History of the Capilano University Blues

Capilano University Blues Athletics has a long and rich history of successful seasons. The university has taken home many provincial and national titles, Coach of the Year, Athlete of the Year, CCAA All-Canadian distinctions and Aggregate championships since 1974.

We are proud of this history, and were honoured to be awarded the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Soccer Supremacy Award, which were presented to the CCAA's most successful men's and women's soccer program between 1974-1999.

Many fine athletes have graced the athletic halls of Capilano University and have gone on to great heights in their athletic, professional, and social endeavors. It is with great pride that we display our championship achievements and the coaches who have guided the teams to numerous winning seasons.
