Introductory, intermediate and advanced lessons, as well as competitive Novice and Junior Olympic Teams, are offered throughout the calendar year to assure consistent and efficient improvement. Since the RBAC opened, the Rose Bowl Dive Team has been one of the top teams in the nation. Almost all of our high school graduates continue diving in college and many have received scholarships offers.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions put in place by the Pasadena Health Department, our Dive Team is currently training with lap swim fitness and dry land fitness. We are working to reopen the platforms and spring boards as quickly as possible.
This level of diving is the first notable turning point in a diver’s career and is designed to help the individual who is interested in preparing for competitive diving. A diver at this level possesses all the basic skills learned in beginning lessons. At this level the diver will feel greater expectation from the coaches, as more time is required at the pool. Dry land training and conditioning begins at this level. In addition to the development of skills and ability, the diver’s self-confidence and pride in achievement become evident.
Parents watch their children experience the incomparable excitement of being able to compete with their peers and be able to make new friends in local U.S. Diving competitions.
This level of diving is designed for the individual (18 years of age or younger) who has successfully trained and competed well as a Novice and is now ready for the greater challenges and rewards of Junior Olympic level diving. As in the Novice level, there are turning points and stages of growth. This can include character builders such as sacrifice (more time spent training, greater physical and emotional demands, etc.), confronting fear, goal setting, experiencing the rewards of accomplishment, being a role model among peers and meeting new people as one travels to compete at regional, zone and national competitions.
The RBAC has a high school team for students who are only interested in diving for their high school.
Rose Bowl has one of the country’s most comprehensive on deck dry land facilities.
Athletes have access to two trampolines, four dry-board stations, multiple low pit somersault stations, as well as a dedicated stretching and exercise area. Dry land training is a prominent part in the modern diver’s training regimen.
Athletes are able to complete more repetitions than in the water, are able to work on different parts of the dive without the fear of smacking, and are able toperform complete dives in the safety of the spotting harness over the dry-board. By practicing out of the water, divers become more proficient in an earlier timeframe than in a solely water based training plan.
Additional equipment includes multiple TIVO stations for instant video feedback and a bubbler system to soften the landing while learning new complex dives.

The Novice Team is the first competitive level of diving. Divers will be required to train 3-4 times per week and are encouraged to participate in local and regional USA Diving and AAU meets. Divers who are interested in the Novice competitive diving program must improve their skills and abilities in order to be asked to move up to the JO Program. Lessons divers who have fulfilled the necessary requirements will be invited to join the Novice Team.
The Junior Olympic team is offered to divers who have a desire and the ability to dive competitively at the national level. Divers will be required to train 5-6 times daily year round, participate in dry land weight training and compete in the USA Diving Junior Olympic competitive meets throughout the year.
The Junior Olympic (J.O.) Team is for divers who have successfully trained and competed well in Novice Team. The J.O. Team competes in local meets, as well as Regional, Zone and National competitions.
Masters diving is technically for adults over the age of 21, but high school and college divers also practice with our team. Most major competitions are structured in five year brackets: 21-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, etc. Smaller competitions combine groups of competitors from various age groups. The Masters group is comprised of divers of all levels of experience: those who intend to compete to those who are either returning to diving after a long absence, continuing beyond college, or just trying it for the first time. All divers must be registered with USA diving to participate. (For those not intending to compete, sign up for the Limited Athlete membership for $12.00 per year plus credit card fee. For those intending to compete, sign up for the Competitive Gold membership for $75.00 per year plus credit card fee.) Attendance is flexible.
There are no try-outs for Novice, Junior Olympic or Masters Teams. Divers will have to graduate from the lessons program in order to join the team. For the Masters Team, divers need to be able to perform the required number of dives for their age as required by a particular competition. For more information, please contact us.
