The Mission Viejo Nadadores dive program offer several scholarship and informational programs to assist our members in financial and educational ways.

The 5-Rings Fund

The Mission Viejo Nadadores Diving program has established The 5-Rings Fund to support professional athletes in their pursuit of accomplishing their Olympic Dreams. This fund will go to support their training needs and living expenses so they can devote their attention to bringing home medals from the Olympic Games.

Post-graduate athletes are often forced to either retire from diving prior to their age of peak performance or to work a full-time job while pursuing their athletic endeavors. The Mission Viejo Nadadores would like to give our top athletes the ability to continue their training well past college to a point and time where they can perform at their absolute best. There is currently no system in the United States to support our athletes in their post-collegiate career. You can help revolutionize the sport of diving in the United States.

Please consider supporting our professional athletes in their journey towards Olympic greatness. Click on the link for further information and to donate to the program


Lipscomb Aid Scholarship for Divers

Nate Lipscomb was a passionate man who fiercely loved his family, career, adventures, and his son Jackson’s diving.

Jackson Lipscomb (17) is a promising diver with the Mission Viejo Nadadores Diving team in Orange County. Jackson is a straight-A student, he trains 20+ hours per week and is on the national diving scene. Recently, Jackson verbally committed to Yale for 2024. Nate could not have been prouder of him, or more helpful to the team.

Nate was a quiet but ever-present and positive force, for both Jackson and the program. In his honor, the team will erect “Nate’s Bell” at the facility with an accompanying plaque. When a diver learns a new dive (a big deal) he/she will ring “Nate’s Bell” to let Nate and the world know of the diving success.

  • The “Nate Lipscomb Scholarship Fund” – This is an endowed fund to help diving families in times of need. The fund allows for a 6-month reduction in diving fees. Proof is  required and three committee members meet two times a year to review applications to determine need. 

If you would like to donate to the Mission Viejo Nadadores in Nate’s memory, your contribution will be used to replenish the scholarship fund. This organization is a 501 (c) (3), and your donation is tax-deductible. Our Tax ID number is 33-0099234.
