UMLY Boathouse Team Jackets

Order Deadline:  October, 11 2019

Dear Academy, Age Group 1 & Senior 1/2/3 Swimmers & Parents:     

For those of you who don’t already know me, my name is Yaoli Xiong.  Back by popular demand, we are placing an order for Boathouse jackets this year! 

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE ON A TIGHT TIMEFRAME IF WE WANT TO HAVE A CHANCE OF GETTING THE JACKETS BY THE SJAC AND GEORGE MASON DECEMBER SWIM MEETS!!! PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THE DEADLINES. 

*************************************************************************************

DEADLINES --  All orders must be placed on TeamUnify by 9:00 p.m. Thursday, October 11th.    

I will hopefully be able to send one e-mail which you can reference to verify your order on the morning of Friday, October 12th.  

Please note that there is TWO-step process for ordering this year.  

******************************************************************************

I have worked with Boathouse Sports to put together a quote for this year.  Please note that this is a totally OPTIONAL order and is not a required piece of the UMLY uniform for the coming season. The jackets have traditionally been viewed as a rite of passage as swimmers reach age 13, and the team has decided to continue that tradition this year.   All swimmers 13 and older in the Academy, AG1, and Senior 1/2/3 practice groups are invited to purchase a Boathouse jacket if they do not already have one. 

If you have never seen the older swimmers wearing them, the jackets are nylon, with a weather-block grey lining and have the UMLY Swimming logo on the back (see below) and your swimmer’s name on the front.  The jacket is an exact replica of what we have from last year.

I have attached a mock-up of the jacket.  Your swimmer will have his/her name on the upper front left of the jacket (limit 13 letters).  On page 89 of the Boathouse catalog is the sizing chart (UNISEX SIZING is the sizing that boys and girls will need to use) www.boathouse.com/pages/size-chart. My understanding is that they run true to size.  Please consider the size carefully as these are custom jackets that cannot be returned for size.

The base cost of the jacket is $96.50 each (same price as last year), which includes your child’s name and shipping.  Because we get discounts at different quantity breakpoints, I don’t have an exact pricing of the jacket.  Plus, there are one-time costs (art fee and shipping) that will be split among the order.  So, the more that are ordered, the base price goes down slightly and the fixed costs are shared over more people. 

Because of both the cost and the tradition noted above, we are not offering jacket orders to other age group swimmers at this time so no younger sibling orders please.   

If you would like to order a jacket for your swimmer, there is a TWO-step process –

1.  Please log on to TeamUnify (www.swimumly.com) and go to Events-Team Functions and Boathouse Jacket Orders by 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 11th and declare your intention to purchase a jacket and provide the requested information below (in the notes section).  You will need to have a credit card or ACH on file.  That credit card or ACH will be charged.  If the final bill is more than expected (the shipping is an estimate), you will be notified, and your credit card will be charged the excess. 

2.  In the note section of the declaration on TeamUnify, please note the following information --

• Your name and cell/home phone number.

• The size of the jacket

• The name that should appear on the jacket (13-character limit)

• Whether this is a holiday gift and should be kept as a surprise. (I will try to do my best to keep it a secret.)

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
