Below is information regarding team
gear and what swimmers will need for practice and
This year we will be having a team
swim suit. We have selected a suit that is available on Swim
Outlet at a very reasonable price for both the boys and the girls.
We encourage swimmers to get this suit for swim meets only
and use a different suit for practice so that their team suit does
not wear out on them. You can check out the suit and ordering
Swim Outlet - KATS Store
It is the
Sporti Light Wave Thin Strap (Product: 23224) or
the Sportil Light Wave Piped Splice Jammer (Product: 23267) in
Yellow and Black. Swim Outlet has the best prices, but you
are free to purchase from any vendor. You can access Swim
Outlet via our page and a portion of what you spend will be donated
back to KATS.
In the past we have done a team order
and have been left with suits that either don't fit or that did not
sell, so we are trying to be cost effective in having everyone
order their own suit.
KATS Team Shirts and Sweatshirts are
available for purchase through our team site with Universal
Athletics. You can order, pay, and then pick up the
shirts/sweatshirts directly with Universal. We will be
offering dry fit shirts-and will open specific ordering times for
those items based upon requests. The link for the team site
with Universal is:
Lastly-swimmers need gear! They
need their own set of goggles and a cap for the girls is
useful for practice. In addition, equipping them with a
water bottle for practice is always good to keep them hydrated.
If you don't have these you can also order them from swim
Sportsmans's and the
Summit carry goggles. As swimmers progress
they will eventually need more gear and Coach will let you know as
your swimmer moves up in levels. For our higher level
swimmers, gear often consists of snorkels, fins, paddles,
bouys, and a gear bag.
