Success Stories

We will never know how many lives are touched, how many tough situations are turned around, how many kids are kept busy after school and away from the bad decisions that can be made. What we do know is: being able to swim is a life-long gift; swimming is a low-impact sport, good for all abilities and all ages; swimming, diving, and water polo develop focus and discipline; the RBAC offers every third grader in Pasadena Unified School District free swimming lessons annually; and the RBAC offers over 150 classes every week and employs 250 in our community. Walk the deck and you’ll see it for yourself.

On Sunday, June 20th the RBAC is hosting a USA Water Polo Qualifying Tournament from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm in the Competition Pool. The Competition Pool will be closed for lap swim during that time.

Thank you for your understanding as the RBAC provides aquatic competitions for local youth teams.

Most COVID-19 restrictions have eased but some operational improvements may continue to evolve over the next few weeks.

  • Masks continue to be required for unvaccinated patrons when indoors. All children under 12, and all unvaccinated patrons must wear a mask when entering the RBAC building including when in the locker rooms. Masks are not required for vaccinated patrons indoors and are not required for anyone when outdoors or while swimming, regardless of vaccination status.
    By entering the RBAC without a mask, patrons are self-attesting they are fully vaccinated.
  • Vaccination status will not be checked for entry or program participation.
  • Temperature screening prior to entry is no longer required.
  • Locker rooms are open at full capacity, and locker use is now available. Patrons are encouraged to store their personal belongings in lockers.
  • Spas are open at full capacity.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as the RBAC continues to evolve with changing guidelines.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 challenges, Anderson Adventure H2O Camp will not be operating during Summer 2021. We hope to offer camp again next summer.

Aqua walking is available in the shallow end when the area is not reserved. Masks must be worn at all times.
