About Mission Viejo Nadadores Foundation
The Nadadores are recognized as the gold standard of swimming and diving excellence since the team's formation in 1968. Since that time, the Nadadores have won 47 National Team Championships, 12 Olympic gold medals, 7 Olympic silver medals, 1 Olympic bronze medal, 5 Individual World Championship titles, and more than 150 Individual National Champion titles. The Nadadores have broken more national and world records than any other team at the Junior Olympic, Senior, and Masters levels, in addition to producing 135 All-Americans. In 1992 ownership of this legacy organization changed, and the Mission Viejo Nadadores Foundation was formed as a volunteer-run 501c3 to oversee both the team's swim and dive programs. Working in partnership with the City of Mission Viejo, the Nadadores strive to serve local, national and global communities as a best-in-class leader in our sports.
The Mission Viejo Nadadores program is dedicated to providing opportunity and encouragement for all of its athletes on their journeys to personal best. Our amazing athletes, world-class coaches, staff, volunteers and supporters make uncompromised commitments to the pursuit of excellence and to becoming champions not only of sport, but of integrity, discipline, teamwork and sportsmanship.
The program relies heavily on the financial revenue from monthly tuition, meet income, and fundraising efforts. Revenue generated covers costs for operations, equipment, facility fees, rental, training, and quality coaching. Due to COVID-19, this year has been especially challenging. Still, we have responsibly and creatively found ways to continue offering quality training and a healthy, positive environment not only for our team but also for visiting displaced athletes with a dream. The Nadadores have been leading the way like a beacon of light, but we cannot do it without your gifts.
Our financial goal is to raise $200,000. Help us meet our year-end goal of $100,000!
Gifts are all tax-deductible and will profoundly impact our program at all levels! THANK YOU!
