Spooktacular Swim Meet, RosevilleOn Oct. 12-14 California Capital Aquatics will host their long-running, Halloween-themed Spooktacular Swim Meet in Roseville. It will do so at the recently renovated Roseville Aquatics Complex (RAC). Placer Valley Tourism, the City of Roseville and CCA all contributed to the funding for these improvements.

The RAC renovations were completed at the beginning of 2018. They included pool replastering, resurfacing of the main pool deck, a 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!”

Speaking of best swimmers, CCA is expecting the youngest superman of swimming. Clark Kent Apuada of the Monterey County Aquatic Team from Salinas, is expected to attend the Spooktacular this year. Apuada, just 10, has received national attention for breaking Michael Phelps’ age-group record in the 100-meter butterfly at the Far Western Championships that were held in Moraga on July 29. 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.

Mark your calendars for Friday, Oct. 12 through Sunday, Oct. 14. Come 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.
