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.

Masking is a simple and effective way to prevent #COVID19 transmission. We already recommend masking indoors for everyone, regardless of vaccination status. We continue to monitor COVID case rates in Pasadena and are reviewing options for a mandate.
