In the Beginning...
In 1995, the City of Roseville Parks and Recreation Department constructed a new aquatic facility in northwest Roseville. With the great popularity of competitive swimming in the Roseville area, the Parks and Recreation Department, in conjunction with California Capital Aquatics, began a new recreational swim program in the Spring of the same year. The team adopted the name Seawolves and chose the wolf as their team mascot. In its inaugural year, the team created a slogan as a way for swimmers throughout the league to identify a Seawolf. The slogan read, appropriately, The Legend Begins...
The Seawolves had 171 swimmers in their first year.
Under the leadership of Shelley MacLeane, the team finished fourth at the League Championship meet in 1995 and 1996. In 1997 the team grew to 200 and with Head Coach Karen LeFebre, the team moved up in League ranking by finishing third at Championships. In 1999, under Coach Jana Hawkin’s guidance, the Seawolves were one of the top teams in contention for the VFCAL championship every year. When Chuck Neep took the reigns of the Seawolves, he led them to back-to-back-to-back VFCAL championships in 2006, 2007 and 2008. In 2009 the Seawolves left VFCAL for the new and expanding NORCAL Swim League and competed in the newly realigned Comstock Conference. In 2012, the Seawolves began competing in the Gold Rush Conference of the Norcal League with Coach Nick Pointer at the helm. In 2015, Coach Beth Gardner took charge as Head Coach. In 2017, Alisha Blatter became Head Coach. She grew up being a Seawolf and has been involved with coaching the Seawolves since 2007. Alisha has victory as a goal for the Seawolves now competing in the Eureka Conference… and, of course having lots of fun along the way!
The team has grown to over 240 swimmers ranging in age from 5-18.
