TEAM SUIT REMINDER
Team suits can be purchased in the Highlands Team Store between March 20 - April 20. The Team Store can also be accessed directly by visiting our Swim Team website. PLEASE NOTE that we will not have swim suits available to try or to purchase at our Team Open House in May this year.
If you want to try on suits for size and purchase in person, or purchase after April 20, you can do so at the SuitUp retail store (address below). Let them know you are a Highlands team member to receive the team price.
In order to return suits, they must have all original tags/box. Suits that have been worn in the water cannot be returned or exchanged. SuitUP accepts returns within 21 days of purchase.

Goggles, practice suits and caps, and kick boards also can be purchased through SuitUp or locally at Sport Fair (5010 Lee Highway). Every swimmer must bring their own kick board to practice.
How do I know what size team suit to order?
We are excited to debut a new team suit this year - Speedo Emerging Force in green (you can see a picture of the suit in our Team Store). This is a two year suit. We will use this same style suit for both the 2021 and 2022 seasons. The suit is available for purchase in the Highlands Team Store until April 20 or at SuitUp (see information above).
Suits should be snug with no wrinkles or gaps - it will loosen up when wet and as your child wears it. For sizing information, see the Speedo Size Chart. If you want additional help with sizing, you can call SuitUp or visit the SuitUp store to try on suits. In our experience, t he Flyback style typically provides the best fit for 12 & under girls. 13 & over girls often seem to prefer the crossback style. For 13 & over girls , we will also be offering a green Jolyn suit to purchase as another suit option. A separate email will be emailed to families with Jolyn order information this weekend. The boys Speedo Emerging Force suit comes in a jammer or brief style.
Once you receive your suit, try it on immediately to make sure it fits correctly.
