Learn to Swim Every year, the RBAC has provided hundreds of at-risk third-grade students from Pasadena Unified School District with swim, dive and water polo lessons. Most of the students are at-risk and have no previous aquatic experience.

The students attend 15 lessons and receive swim suits, water safety workbooks, and daily towel service. The program includes free famly swim passes so that parents, siblings and members of extended families may participate. Most students improve one to two levels and many return to the Center to continue in more advanced classes or participate on the competitive teams.

The lessons develop athletic skills for a lifetime of healthy recreation as well as safety around pools and beaches. This is essential because nearly 4,000 Americans drown every year. Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional death in children from ages one to 14, killing almost three children a day in the U.S.

This school year, over 735 students from 10 PUSD schools will participate. They will come from Altadena, Cleveland, Field, Hillsides, Jackson, Jefferson, Madison, McKinley, San Rafael and Washington Accelerated Elementary Schools. In sum, classroom teachers report that program benefits extend well beyond the pool deck. During the swim programs, attendance and student academic performance is up while tardies and classroom disruptions are down. The program is made possible by support from the LA84 Foundation, Pasadena Community Development Block Grant, Pasadena Educational Foundation and the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center Scholarship Fund.
