Swimming in Mission Viejo
There’s simply nothing like swimming in Mission Viejo. Here, you’ll find a golden combination of weather, facilities, location, access to coaching and competition that is simply unparalleled.
The x-factor is Mission Viejo’s singular role as “Home of the Nadadores.” Founded in 1968, the Nadadores has grown into one of the nation’s largest swimming clubs and the non-profit club is the only one to have had its athletes represented in every Olympics since 1976.
The City’s tradition of excellence is exactly what brings the world’s best swimmers – and those who train, coach and support them – to Mission Viejo.

(There are) memories for me here. My first nationals. I broke a world record in this pool. It shaped who I was as a swimmer and really who I was a person.”Rowdy Gaines, Three-Time Olympic Gold Medalist
