Volunteer at Events

It is absolutely imperative that all parents and families are involved with the volunteer needs of the program as we head into our heavy meet season. We anticipate record numbers as we host the Ron O’Brien Invitational at the end of March and at the Junior National Championships at the end of July. The program and these events will necessitate everyone’s participation however big or small. Please keep your eyes peeled for volunteer opportunities that will be coming your way.

Chris Vonk

Chris Vonk Diving Invitational

Annually

This diving competition is in memory of a wonderful young Nadador diver Named Chris Vonk. He was talented, hard working, and always wore a smile on his face. Chris loved to surf and to dive, a true SoCal water-loving boy!
He was a JO National Team member when the Nadadores took JO National Titles in both 1988 & 1989. Chris passed away far too early life (1990 at age 16) when he had a car accident while driving himself to practice. 
Chirs’ golden blond hair, bright smile, and big blue eyes will always shine down on our pool.

2023 Dates  
JO: December 1st – 3rd
Novice: December 9th – 10th

Midnight Madness

Annual Event

The Mission Viejo Nadadores are excited to announce the 2023 Midnight Madness, our only ALL-TEAM FUNDRAISING EVENT!

What is Midnight Madness? Midnight Madness is an all-team event marking the culmination of our Swim and Divea-thons on Saturday, June 10, 2023. All of our swimmers and divers will gather to complete their laps/dives to earn their pledges for Swim/Dive-a-thon.

MVN invites you to make a family night of it! Enjoy our dinner and beer garden, play lawn games, and bid on the Coach Experiences in the Silent Auction. Let’s have a great time as only Nadadores know how to do!

Why do we need to fundraise? MVN is a world-class team with world-class coaches and facilities. Our goal is to continue to provide athlete opportunities by building the best training environment possible. This year our goal is
$150,000 (about $300 per athlete) to purchase 50-meter pool covers, upgraded audio speakers and new diving board blocks. 

Previous fundraising efforts have furnished new dryland equipment for both swim and dive, new weight room resources, video analysis equipment for divers, and soon to be installed grandstands for the diving well. All of these
resources support the continued growth and success of our teams.
