“Success does not come
overnight, it comes through a series of steps. Sometimes it’s
two steps forward and one step
-Calvin K. Lee

We need to get as many swimmers' sizes in by June 22 so we can have the suits ready for you in our first week in September (there will be an option to order late, but you will also receive your suit late).
Please sign up to order your suit and include your size and style in the notes.
There are two styles for girls - thick and thin straps. And two styles for boys - brief (speedo) and jammer. The club colour will be navy.
