California Capital Aquatics will host its long-running, Halloween-themed Spooktacular Swim Meet in Roseville at the recently renovated Roseville Aquatics Complex Oct. 12–14.


Around 750 swimmers are expected to compete. 


The RAC renovations were completed at the beginning of 2018 and included pool replastering, resurfacing the main pool deck and a state-of-the-art LED scoreboard and starting blocks. Placer Valley Tourism, the city of Roseville and CCA all helped fund the improvements.


CCA is again joined by PVT in bringing the Spooktacular back to the RAC. 


“The coaches in the area love the upgrades to an already amazing facility at the Roseville Aquatics Complex,” said CCA head coach Justin Brosseau. “It is a fast pool and… the best swimmers in the area want more chances to compete at this facility.”  


Brosseau said several records were broken at the RAC in two swim meets this summer.


Clark Kent Apuada, the 10-year old who broke a record in the 100-meter butterfly set by Michael Phelps, is expected to be on hand. Apuada is no stranger to the RAC, competing in the Western Zones in August.


Friday warm-ups start at 4:30 p.m. and racing at 5:30. Racing will start at 8:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.


The aquatics complex is located at 3051 Woodcreek Oaks Blvd. in Roseville. There is no fee for spectators, and a snack bar will be on site for those showing up to watch some spooky-fast swimming.
