From our Merchandise Chair:

We will have the same suits this year as the 2014-2015 season.  If your swimmers' suits still fit, you will not need to purchase a new one. For new swimmers or those who need to replace their suit, 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 based on availability. 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 soon have our optional team 2015-2016 t-shirt and other optional merchandise on file and on-line on their website.  Parents, feel free to order one for yourself too.  


I will let you know sometime around mid-September when the merchandise is updated on their webstie and available to order. You are responsible for picking up your own merchandise at Different Strokes.  

I will be ordering caps in bulk order.  One latex team cap is free with team fees OR you may upgrade to a silicone cap for $8. I will distribute these to swimmers.  I will let you know when they are available.
