Placer Hosting Halloween-Themed Swimming Competition
9 Oct, 2018
On October 12-14 California Capital Aquatics (CCA) will host their long-running, Halloween-themed Spooktacular Swim Meet in Roseville at the recently renovated Roseville Aquatics Complex (RAC). Placer Valley Tourism (PVT), the City of Roseville and CCA all contributed to the funding of these improvements.
The RAC renovations were completed at the beginning of 2018 and included pool re-plastering, the main pool deck resurfaced, state-of-the-art LED scoreboard and starting blocks. PVT is thrilled to be teaming up with CCA again to bring this event back to the RAC and show the 750 swimmers competing all the enhancements and upgrades.
"The coaches in the area love the upgrades to an already amazing facility at the Roseville Aquatics Complex,'' commented Justin Brosseau, CCA Head Coach. "It is a FAST pool and word is out how many records were broken both at the Sierra Nevada Swimming Bill Rose Classic and the Western Zone Age Group Championships this past summer; the best swimmers in the area want more chances to compete at this facility!"
CCA is expecting the youngest superman of swimming, Clark Kent Apuada representing the Monterey County Aquatic Team from Salinas, to compete at the Spooktacular this year! Ten-year old Apuada has received national attention for breaking Michael Phelp's record in the 100-meter butterfly at the Far Western Championships that were held on July 29 in Moraga, Calif. Apuada is no stranger to the RAC as he competed in the Western Zones this August. CCA is excited to have a swimmer of his caliber heightening the level of competition for all the athletes at the meet.
Friday, Oct. 12 warm-ups will start at 4:30 p.m. and the races start at 5:30 p.m. On both Saturday and Sunday swimmers will begin arriving at 7 a.m. for warm-ups with the first races of the day starting at 8:30 a.m. Mark your calendars and come on down to the RAC at 3051 Woodcreek Oaks Blvd. in Roseville to see some spooky, fast swimming! There is no fee for spectators and a snack bar will be on-site with food and beverages available to purchase.
