Rose Bowl Swim Team is led by a philosophy that hard work is needed, good sportsmanship is essential & in order for great things to happen, swimmers, coaches & families must work & bond together as a TEAM. The mission of the Rose Bowl Swim TEAM is to continue to flourish as a nationally renowned program. By fostering a genuine TEAM environment, we encourage each student-athlete to realize their full potential both in & out of the pool and provide a safe and supportive environment.
The Rose Bowl Aquatics Swim Team groups are structured to ensure that each swimmer has the ability to swim with their peers, both in terms of age groups and by ability. The coaching staff works very hard to ensure that each swimmer is in the best group for that individual and their success in the water.
New group information coming soon.
Tryouts are offered each Monday and Tuesday from 3p.m. to 3:20p.m. The limit per day is 6 swimmers.
Rose Buds Swim Team is a great introduction to the fun of swimming through practices, culture and competition for children of all ages. Swimmers practice with, and compete against, children with similar swimming skills in a non-intimidating, TEAM-oriented, fun and energetic environment. Swimming is a life-long family sport that is both fun and rewarding. Our coaches aim to instill a passion for the sport of swimming in all our Rose Bowl athletes
The first step to joining our swim team, is to schedule a tryout for Rose buds or the Rose Bowl Aquatics team. After the evaluation we may suggest the appropriate group for him/her. Groups are set up to help each swimmer learn proper techniques based on the overall knowledge and understanding of each stroke. As swimmers improve their technique, we assess their progress at the end of each month. If he or she is ready for more advanced instruction we will communicate this with the family.
For questions, please contact the Rose Buds team at jmacdougall@rosebowlaquatics.
The Rose Bowl Aquatics swim program is based on the belief that the TEAM experience must be one of cooperation, cohesiveness, sportsmanship and excellence. In order for TEAM spirit to truly thrive, and for this team to maintain its enviable levels of cohesiveness and performance, entire families must participate in meaningful ways. Working together to make swim meets and other team functions run creates important connections amongst all families, shows tangible support for our coaches and swimmers, and models cooperation and sportsmanship for our children.
We have programs for all ages. Our Pre-competitive team (Rose Buds) is open for individuals 6-17 years of age that are capable of swimming freestyle and backstroke, and who have been introduced to butterfly and breaststroke (but they do not have to know how to do the strokes well). Our Competitive Team is open for swimmers 6 years of age and older, who are able to swim all four competitive strokes legally and meet the criteria outlined in the Group Information. Adults (18 and over) are invited to join our Masters Swim Team. For more information about the Masters Swim Team, please click here.
Our competitive program is for those swimmers that have been on a competitive team before and can perform all 4 strokes legally along with proper turns.
Team tryouts are temporarily on hold. Please check back periodically for updates.
