Did you know?
More than 15,000 PUSD 3rd graders have learned to swim at the Rose Bowl Acquatic Center with support from PEF?
Every year the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center provides hundreds of third-grade students 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 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.
