The Roseville Aquatics Complex Will Play Host to Hundreds of Top Competitors July 21-24

The USA Swimming Speedo Champions Series is making a scheduled stop in Placer Valley when for the first time ever they will hold the Summer CA-NV Sectional Championships right here in Roseville fromJuly 21-24. This series is known for showcasing some of the best swimming talent in the nation and is broken down into four zones: Eastern, Western, Southern and Central, with California falling in the Western Zone.

In the past this sectional has been held at locations such as Santa Clarita and Clovis, however this year Roseville's own California Capital Aquatics (CCA) will host this exciting event in conjunction with Placer Valley Tourism at the Roseville Aquatics Complex (RAC) for four days of top-notch competition.

More than 600 swimmers from all over California and Nevada will be competing and in order to enter swimmers had to prequalify with times that were achieved during the time-frame of May 1, 2015 through July 13, 2016. The format for the meet is trial/finals with the trials beginning at 9 a.m. each morning and the finals beginning at 5 p.m. each afternoon.

Denna Culpepper, Executive Director for Sierra Nevada Swimming, explained swimmers are allowed to compete in no more than six events and there is no age limit for the meet, just qualifying times must be met.

"Many college swimmers will be competing at the meet since they are usually back in their hometowns training over the summer with their USA Swimming club," added Culpepper.

There will be more than 50 volunteer officials from the California-Nevada region to officiate the meet and CCA will have as many as 200 volunteers to help run the meet over the course of the competition. Speedo will have a representative on deck during the entire meet as well as an authorized Speedo merchandise dealer.

The RAC is located at 3051 Woodcreek Oaks Blvd so mark your calendars and come watch these top-notch swimmers make a serious splash!
