Roseville Aquatics Complex Hosts Summer Sanders Swim Meet
Roseville - California Capital Aquatics (CCA) and Placer Valley Tourism (PVT) are excited to be teaming up to bring the Summer Sanders Long Course JR+ Swim Meet to the Roseville Aquatics Complex on June 9-12. 2016 marks the nineteenth year for this incredible four-day USA Swimming Sanctioned event that will showcase the talents of more than 900 swimmers coming from 57 different teams throughout the West Coast.
As a time trials meet, this year the significance is paramount due to 2016 being an Olympic year. "With the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Omaha, Nebraska on June 26-July 3, for many swimmers the Summer Sanders meet will be their last opportunity to achieve the qualifying U.S. Olympic Trial cut in order to compete at the upcoming trials in Omaha," elaborated Alex Oncago, CCA Meet Director. "This has led to the Summer Sanders Meet getting nicknamed as Last Chance U.S. Olympic Trials this year."
Oncago also explained that USA Swimming has partnered with the John Wayne Cancer Foundation in their "Block the Blaze" campaign that is intended to educate the public about skin cancer prevention and they will have representatives manning a poolside booth throughout the Summer Sanders Meet.
Representing USA Swimming, Olympic Swimming Champion Summer Sanders has generously given her time to help promote this campaign and will be present, although she has not confirmed which day or days she will be at the booth, she will definitely make an appearance," Oncago added.
The Roseville Aquatics Complex is located at 3051 Woodcreek Blvd. in Roseville so make sure to swing by and watch a watch a potential future Olympian as well as learning sun safety tips and skin cancer facts that can protect you for life.
