Blues Tradition

The Capilano Blues Varsity Athletic Program has more than 45 years of history and it is with great pride that we display our championship achievements and many awards won by our coaches and athletes.

  • 15 National Championships

  • 3 CCAA Hall of Fame Inductees
  • 9 CCAA Players of the Year
  • 4 CCAA Coaches of the Year
  • 36 Conference Players of the Year
  • 21 Conference Coaches of the Year
  • 71 CCAA All-Canadians
  • 63 CCAA Academic All-Canadians
  • 176 CCAA National Scholars



To reach these achievements, the Blues Varsity Athletics Program employs qualified, experienced coaches who assists student-athletes in developing and refining their skills. The emphasis of our program is on the pursuit of excellence through skill acquisition and personal development.

Capilano University is a member of the Pacific Western Athletic Association (PACWEST), which is the governing body for two- and four-year post-secondary institutions in British Columbia. We are also members of the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA), which governs college sport for 94 member institutions across the nation.


As coaches and educators, we promote a sense of commitment to both academics and athletics, and motivate our student-athletes towards accomplishments in both disciplines. We are proud of our students' achievements on the playing field and in the classroom; last season, 27 Blues student-athletes were named CCAA National Scholars, and five were CCAA Academic All-Canadians.

In the Fall of 2019, 56 per cent of student-athletes had a GPA of 3.0 or better.

Our goal is to develop student-athletes to be successful in life, and we believe hard work, commitment and discipline in the pursuit of these goals will help students become well-rounded individuals. Many fine student-athletes have graced the halls of Capilano University and have gone on to great heights in their athletic, professional and social endeavors.
