Workout Etiquette

Our swimmers’ range in their ability and fitness level, from beginners to serious competitive swimmers.

Please follow these guidelines to make workout sessions safer and more pleasurable for all swimmers.

General Team Guidelines:

1. Try to get in the water on time.

2. Stay on the right side of the lane.  Avoid being on the wall at the same time as your lane mate.  Turn and stop 6 feet out if you need to stop.  

3. Always be aware of what is going on within your lane.

4. Try not to kick or swing your arms into another lane while swimming or at the wall.

5. When you are late, will have to join the workout at its current point, rather than from the beginning.

6. When a person in your lane appears unsure of the rules, please bother to explain, in a polite manner.

7.  Everyone should help when lanes need to be removed or placed back in the pool.

Nadadores Swim Store


Exciting news!

Recently, the teams signed a new agreement with Dolfin apparel to cover all programming at the facility as well as a dealer agreement with the MVProShop, who will now handle all team apparel and equipment needs, on site.  (We will no longer order team equipment from CAS in Huntington Beach or Irvine).

Dolfin and the MVProShop have a robust array of suits, gear and apparel and the manufacturer has also created customized “sublimated” Mission Viejo suits and clothing for our programs.    

 As a member of the program you will receive a 20% discount on all MV team apparel twice a year.  You can order team gear and other items online at starting on September 21 (receiving your 20% discount with a code) or in person at the store, which is temporarily located in the lower gravel parking lot across from the tennis courts. On Swim Picture Day (September 26th), MVProShop will be at the facility ready to take your order for the 2020-21 MVND Product Line!

MVProShop will also hold “sizing days” on the following days at the pool.

October 2nd, 5th, and 6th - 4:00pm – 7:00pm

October 3rd - 9:00am - 12:00pm

These relationships will benefit the program and the City of Mission Viejo in numerous ways:

·      More personalized customer service

·      On site shopping

·      Less wait times

·      Discount to athletes on team apparel purchases at least twice a year

·      Sales tax remains within the City of Mission Viejo and    helps our community

 Beginning  October 7th, MVProShop hours will be:

Monday, Wednesday & Thursday – 10:00am -12:00pm, 4:00pm- 6:00pm

Saturday: - 9:00am -12:00pm

Thought of the Day


"Being positive doesn't mean you ignore the reality of the situation or sugarcoat what’s happening. It means you don't let negativity sour things and make them worse."
