History of California Capital Aquatics  


In 1983, the Fair Oaks Sea Broncs merged with the Sierra Aquatic Club to form California Capital Aquatics. The team had no home pool and practiced at various pools in Northeast Sacramento. In fact, the team moved so frequently during this period that Head Coach Mike Hastings thought a better name for the team would be "The Nomads of Northeast Sacramento". There were about 50 swimmers on the team during this nomadic period.

CCA moved to Jesuit High School in 1986 when a new eight-lane 25-yard pool was built at the high school. Jesuit became the team’s new home and CCA grew in size to over 100 swimmers. Although CCA had a stable 25-yard facility, it still lacked a stable 50-meter pool and swimmers had to travel to Yuba City, Woodland, and the Rancho Arroyo pool in Sacramento for long course training during the summers. Also, the Senior group swimmers had to practice at a different pool during Jesuit High School’s water polo and swimming season because there was not enough room to accommodate both programs. Even though the team had a home, it was not the most ideal situation and CCA was still somewhat nomadic.  Mike Hastings and the CCA Board of Directors spent many years working to achieve the goal of a 50-meter home for the team. This goal was finally achieved when CCA moved to the Roseville Aquatics Complex in May of 1995.

Currently, CCA employs five coaches to train and develop the 125+ year-round swimmers.  The CCA program consists of eight swimming group levels. CCA also has an Adult Masters Program for any swimmer 19 years old and older who want to continue to challenge themselves in the pool and our popular Pre-Competitive Program designed to introduce swimmers to the world of USA Swimming and competitive swimming. Practices are held Monday through Friday in the evenings and some swimmers also practice on Saturday mornings. Today, the team is continuing to develop into one of the strongest in the Sacramento area.
