Sacramento State Aquatic Center
Capital Crew meets and practices at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center on Lake Natoma located in Gold River, California. This center is a multi-million dollar facility on eight acres of land which was established in 1981 to augment the academic curriculum at Sacramento State. Over the years, the center incorporated classes for the general public in all types of water sports, summer camps, and youth programs, as well as hosting many competitive sporting events. Because of its vast amenities; its location on the long protected waters of Lake Natoma, an extensive beach area, good year round weather, three docks and convenient parking, this facility is one of the finest premiere rowing venues on the West Coast.
The Sacramento State Aquatic Center is a cooperative operation of the Associated Students of California State University, Sacramento, the University Union of Sacramento State, the California Department of Boating and Waterways, and the California Department of Parks and Recreation.
The Sacramento State Aquatic Center is host to many regattas throughout the fall and spring seasons, including the Southwest Regional Junior Championships, WIRA’s (Western Inter-collegiate Rowing Association) Championships, Gold Rush Master’s Regatta, and sometimes, the IRA’s (Inter-collegiate Rowing Association) Championships, and NCAA’s (National Collegiate Athletic Association). Occasionally the Aquatic Center also hosts teams from other countries.
