In 1989, the Lotus Sports Club organized the first outrigger race in Canada, the Lotus Ironman. Since then, the list of outrigger races has become extensive and Lotus has made a name for itself as both a competitive and participatory club. The Lotus Senior Masters Women's team won the 2004 CORA Canadian Outrigger championship in their division. This past year, the Lotus Mixed team won the CORA Canadian Iron Championships as well as the CORA Cup in the Open Mixed division.

It was decided in the spring of l989 to start a junior development program. Since then, the program has grown to include six high schools in the Tri-Cities area and over 1000 students have been on the team. This team has done very well in both local and international meets and has many championships to its credit. The Lotus junior teams are the 2005 CORA Canadian Outrigger Junior Division champions.
