World Swim Day is Saturday, October 28, 2023. MySwimPro founded this international holiday to increase participation in swimming and promote water safety inclusive of geography, language, and skills.

World Swim Day is more than a virtual swim. It’s a chance to reflect on why you love the water and raise funds for organizations that provide much-needed water safety programming.
