NEW SWIM SUITS: We have NEW Marlins Team suit design for Summer 2021 - samples of the boys jammer made their debut today at the Decatur Swimmeet! We would love to see all our Marlins Swimmers in these bright new suits this summer! Agon is the company that we have used in the past for the grey/navy suits. I will be posting the ordering link soon. There will be a 7 day order window the end of April that will give the team FREE shipping of suits! We have a try-on kit from the company so your swimmers will be able to try on suits before they order them. Try-on dates have been posted for sign up on the website: April 18th 1-2:30pm, April 19th 3:15-4:15pm, April 20th 6:45-7:45pm and April 29th 3:15-4:15pm. I recommend that ALL swimmers try on suits to get them sized as we will send the try-on kit back after April 29th.
Please watch for more details on ordering links as they become available, we will also have summer Spirit Wear orders so families can also order the SUMMER Team T-shirts as well as other items.
More details will also be coming on Summer Practice times as we will be offering atleast 3 different practice times starting in June, including Mornings, Mid-day and Evening practice times.
