This Week's Top Tip!
A few tips to help meets go smoothly:
Team Gear Update:
Team Parkas are now available in our Team Store for purchase! There are 2 brands available. The Arena parka (the one that was available to try on) is water resistant, and the Sporti parka is waterproof. Additionally, many sizes for the Alpha Team Jacket are back in stock. Get your jacket now before it sells out again! It can take 10-15 business days for orders to arrive, order your custom gear today so that you have it by Zone 2 Championships in January, as we want to present ourselves as a team and wear the team jacket and blue team t-shirt. A new order for the PST branded white swim caps has been placed in both latex and silicone. Look out for when they will be available in a few weeks.
