Competitive Aquatic Teams


The City of Roseville offers one pre-competitive aquatic team and one competitive swim team during the spring and summer. The Sea Lions pre-competitive aquatic team is open to boys and girls ages 5-14. This program offers a similar experience to a summer recreation swim team without the time commitment for Saturday swim meets. For a more competitive experience, boys and girls ages 5-18 are welcome to tryout in early spring for the Woodcreek SeaWolves. This team relies heavily on parent participation and volunteerism.


Pre-Competitive Aquatic Team (Roseville Sea Lions)

Program Details: This team will practice 4 days a week, for 45 minutes to an hour each day.  The team will have one inter-squad meet, and one organized water polo game at the end of the program.  Three days a week will be focused on competitive swimming (strokes, starts, turns, and conditioning), and the fourth day will be focused on water polo.  The goal of this program is to be able to allow more children to participate, as well as prepare them for competitive aquatics in the future. 

Prerequisites: Children must be able to swim 50 yards unassisted. Refunds will be given to those who cannot meet  this requirement on the first day of practice.

Information for Summer 2015 will be available in March.

Each family is required to volunteer a minimum of 14 hours at swim meets during the summer.
