Douglas County Stingrays Team Uniform

All swimmers are asked to wear their DCS swim cap when representing the team in competition. We encourage a royal blue suit (our team color) but it is not mandatory.

We know that brands of swimsuits fit differently! Swimmers may wear a suit from the manufacturer of their choice.

All of this swim gear can be found at various online swim shops. Use the links below:
