2021 and 22 Team Suit

Team suits are encouraged but not required. This season we have selected a navy patterned Arena suit that will be utilized as a two year suit, which means that we will have the same suit in 2022 as we have in 2021. Pricing is roughly: Female $60; Jammer $42; Brief: $35.

Available in two styles for girls:

We will have one team suit fitting at Springboard this season: Wednesday June 9 2021 from 4:00-6:30 pm.  You may also purchase the suit directly at Sport Fair in Arlington: 5010 Lee Highway Arlington, VA 22207.

Consider picking up a practice suit for your swimmer or diver so that the team suit will remain in good condition for meets.  Some sites like swimoutlet.com or TYR.com offer a "grab bag" suit where you can select the desired style and order at a significant discount but you will be sent a random color or pattern.

Swim Team Equipment Needs

        All swimmers are required to have (and don't forget to LABEL EVERYTHING):

        • Swimsuit - One piece "lap" or "competitive" style suits are encouraged for girls and jammer or brief-style suits are suggested for boys.  Check out sites like swimoutlet.com or our team suit supplier, Sport Fair, for options.  Speedo, TYR and Arena are leading brands and Dolfin and Sporti also make good suits for practices.
        • Goggles - Swim goggles are required for practices.  Speedo Hydrospex or TYR Swimples are great goggles for younger swimmers.  Speedo Vanquisher is a popular model for competitive swimmers.  Swimoutlet.com, Sport Fair, and Amazon are good places to start if you're in the market for new goggles. Avoid mask or novelty-style goggles for practices.
        • Swim cap - Swimmers need to wear caps to keep hair out of their eyes and get in the habit for meets.  There are three styles of caps: latex, silicone and nylon.  Competitive swimmers use latex or silicone and it's a matter of preference.  Team caps will be offered for sale in conjunction with registration or you can find them at the retailers listed above.  
        • Face mask - You'll need a mask for practice, meets and events. You won't be able to participate without one!
        • Water bottle - Stay hydrated before, during and after practice.
        • Sunscreen - Be safe in the sun and apply sunscreen prior to practice.
        • Towel - Don't forget your towel!
