A Super Fun Swim For Kids Aged 5-12
Avg Water Temp
  • Details

    This is a super fun, super safe swim for kids between the ages of 5-12. The idea is simply to have FUN! The swims are along the shore in very shallow water. In fact, most kids can stand up and run if they wanted to (and many do!). We want kids to get comfortable in the water and learn to swim with others in a non-competitive environment, and have the thrill of finishing under our arch while spectators cheer them on. Parents are welcome to be along the shore to encourage their child!

    Each participant will receive a swag bag with towel and a latex swim cap, and a finisher’s medal at the end.

    The swims are under the supervision and management of experienced adult swimmers, with lifeguards nearby.

    Pre-registration is required.

    Note: If your child is an experienced swimmer, this is not the swim for them! Please do not enter your child if they have competitive swimming experience in a club environment.

Free Swim Clinics Start This Saturday

The Fresh Air Open Water Swim Clinics start this Saturday, June 15th at Boyce-Gyro Beach in Kelowna. 

The clinics start at 7am, but we encourage you to get there well before (6:30ish) to get signed in. Just bring your wetsuit, goggles and a change of clothes. We’ll supply you with a swim cap. We’ll have a few laughs, lots of giveaways and a beautiful morning on the beach.

To speed things up, please download and complete the waiver and bring it with you. Download the waiver

The free clinics run every Saturday until July 20th and are free for participants of any of our swims. Want your best bud to come with you for support? No problem, it’s just a measly $5 for them to join.

These clinics are geared towards newer swimmers who need to get comfortable in the open water. Our coaches will teach you sighting, swimming with others, drafting, swimming with waves, and other open water swimming skills, perfect for the anxious or first time swimmers.

Fresh Air will be on site so you can demo wetsuits and the ATLS team will be there to answer questions!

Over 50% of our participants are first time swimmers, so you first timers are not alone! Come join us!
