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.

Masks Updates

The Pasadena Public Health Department (PPHD) announced that Pasadena has moved into the low COVID-19 community level and will be updating the previously issued health officer order. Under these revised orders, indoor masking will be strongly recommended, but not required, for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.
The RBAC has been following public health and PPHD guidance throughout the pandemic, and therefore we are lifting our indoor mask requirement. Masks are strongly recommended to all while indoors, and we should all respect someone’s personal choice to wear one or not. Patrons are welcome to wear a mask based on their personal preference, comfort level, and their personal level of risk.

The West Spa will be closed for repairs till further notice. Thank you for understanding!
