Sport is a vital part of every culture. Since the late 1800s in the Central Okanagan, our sport heritage has grown richer, reflecting our vibrant and growing community.
The Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame Museum interprets our community’s long and vibrant sport history and it celebrates and honours those who inspire us even more through their dedication to sport and through the success of their efforts. One good measure of a healthy community is the strength of its sport heritage, and the exciting spirit of the Central Okanagan shines through the talented competition and keen promotion of sports that demonstrates all the best values of human endeavour.
As we tell these stories, we hope you will join us in supporting, celebrating, and honouring the sport legacy we have inherited and the one we are creating today.
The Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame Museum recognizes achievement and excellence in sports within the Central Okanagan region: the City of Kelowna, District of Lake Country, District of Peachland, and West Kelowna.
In November 0f 2013, we inducted 4 individuals and 1 team. Click here to find out more about these inductees, and be sure to like us on Facebook and check out videos of our induction ceremonies on YouTube.
Each year, our Sports Legacy Committee will honour inductee(s) into the Sports Hall of Fame. The inductee(s) will be selected from nominations made by the community in the categories of Athlete, Team, and Builder. Criteria will look at levels of participation, accomplishment, and contributions in each of the nomination categories.
