The Rose Bowl Aquatic Center Masters Swim Team is a team-based adult training program. Coach Chad Durieux supervises the morning, afternoon, and evening workouts. Swimming skill levels range from novice competitive swimmers to former Olympic competitors. Lanes are organized with swimmers grouped according to ability. Some members are training for specific events while most train for broad health and fitness reasons. The atmosphere is a general mixture of dedication and fun.

We have 3 seasons year that we train for as well as helping train open water, triathletes and for other water based sports.

The facilities at the Center are world-class in quality and management. (The United States Olympic Swim Team trained here prior to departing for the 2000 Sydney Summer Olympics.) The Center has two outdoor 50-meter Olympic pools. The competition (West) pool can be configured in 25 yard (width) or 50 meter (length) configuration. The recreation (East) pool is always in the 25 yard (width) configuration.
Everyone understands the demands imposed by family and professional work schedules and, thus, you do not have to start and stop in unison with the team. However, the value of participating with a team will provide you with the greatest benefit in your swimming efforts. Ideally, you should start your workout with the group and finish as much of the workout as possible.
Rose Bowl Masters is a Nationally ranked team in the United States Masters Swimming organization. We compete at local meets throughout the year as well as attending our Local Zone Championships 3 times a year for Short Course Yards, Long Course Meters and Short Course Meters. Attending these competitions or Meets are not required of the team members but it is expected that everyone participates to help the team to grow and become recognized as an international titan. Team members have competed in meets that include FINA Masters World Championships, USA Olympic Trials, USMS Nationals. We also have many other types of athletes that compete in local to international Triathlons and Open Water swims. For more information visit: www.spmasterswim.org or www.usms.org.
