HOW TO ORDER A TEAM PARKA
Things to know:
- Our standard team parka is black, with "GATORS" on the back in red and yellow.
- Parkas aren’t cheap. Depending where you order and how much you want them personalized, they cost between $75-$140.
- Because they are so expensive, most families will order parkas with lots of room to grow into. (Smaller adult sizes will often get kids through their late middle/early high school years.)
Places to order:
Swimoutlet.com – Standard Gator parkas may be easily ordered at SwimOutlet.com. Orders can be placed online, and personalized if desired. As of fall 2015, a standard youth sized parka costs approximately $75 and an adult-sized parka costs approximately $80, including front embroidery and standard shipping.
NorCal Swim Shop – NorCal has been making parkas for Pacific Swimming teams for decades and they have all of the specs on file for our parkas. All that you need to do is tell them what team you are from and they will step you through the rest – including offering very helpful advice on sizing.
All NorCal parkas are custom made and are of very good quality. Because they are made to order, they require 6-8 weeks for shipping. Orders must be placed no later than Oct. 15 if you wish to receive the parka in time for Christmas.
Details and prices may be checked on the NorCal website, but please note that NorCal only accepts orders by phone (800-752-7946). As of fall 2015, a typical parka cost approximately $145, including shipping.
