Each year members of the water polo community take part in the 2.1km Across the Lake Swim here in Kelowna.

In 2023 the swim will take place on July 15th.

This swim is not only a challenging athletic feat, but also a fun and exciting experience for participants and spectators alike. With the stunning backdrop of the Okanagan Lake and surrounding mountains, swimmers are surrounded by breathtaking scenery during their journey across the water. Additionally, the warm waters and supportive atmosphere provide a fun and enjoyable environment for all participants, whether they are seasoned swimmers or trying it out for the first time.

The camaraderie and excitement of the event create lasting memories for all who participate, making it a must-do summer event in Kelowna.

Profits from the all Across the Lake Swim events fund the YMCA Okanagan Swims Program in the Okanagan to drown-proof children.

Over the years the event has sent over 16,000 children to swimmign lessons and donated over $145,000.
