From our Merchandise Chair:

We will have new suits for this year and they are available for order at Different Strokes Swim Shop in Livonia  (Middlebelt between 7 and 8 Mile).  To keep continuity and costs down for families, the suit will be used for at least the next few years. The suit is solid black with blue trim (girls) or black (boys) and will be embroidered w/the team stingray and the Y logo (as per YMCA requirements).  It is the Speedo Endurance Training Suit/Jammer/brief.  Different Strokes will have this information on file.


Gold and Senior practice groups will also need the required mesh swim bag w/flippers, kickboard, snorkel, hand paddles and a pull buoy.


Different Strokes will have our optional team t-shirt (or women's tank top) on file.  Parents, feel free to order one for yourself too. Please note that the Bella brand t-shirts run small and if you are in between sizes you may want to order the larger size. Different Strokes has Bella sizing guidelines. There is also a Gilden brand available if you would prefer an even roomier t-shirt.


You may go to Different Strokes at any time starting now to order all of the above merchandise.  They will also be coming early (about 4:45pm) to our Mock Meet on Friday, October 3rd so you can see samples of the merchandise and place orders if you did not have a chance to make it to the store by then.  If you choose this option you should arrive before 5pm so it does not interfere w/pictures or your swimmer's warm-up. They will be offering 25% discount on selected merchandise for us October 3rd through 5th at the mock meet and in their store.  I will forward you the flyer when I receive it from them.
