Apparel & Equipment

Simply Swimming

Delta Aquatics is proud to be affiliated with Simply Swimming as our apparel & equipment supplier. The store will come out to practice one time during the early portion of each season and the dates & times will be posted on the practice calendars. You can try on suits and purchase all the swimming equipment and apparel you will need for the season at this time. If you are new to swimming and need help sizing your suit, you will want to attend one of our fittings when Simply Swimming can help you choose the proper fit. Racing suits should be tighter than you might normally pick for a practice suit. We advise being fitted rather than making a mistake on purchasing the wrong size suit. 

If you need additional equipment or cannot make the team fitting, you can click on the Simply Swimming logo below to visit the Delta Aquatics online store where you can purchase all your equipment for the season. Orders will not be collected by the coaching staff.

Apparel Policies

Team Apparel at Meets
Swimmers will wear the following shirts on the given day of a swim meet.  Parents are encouraged to participate as well!  Shirts (and much more!) may be purchased online through Simply Swimming.

Thursday - Navy Shirts
Friday - White Shirts
Saturday - Gray Shirts
Sunday - Navy Shirts

All swimmers will wear their Delta Aquatics team cap at all competitions.

Team Suits
Swimmers will wear the "regular" team competition suit at all meets unless otherwise specified by the coaching staff.  Typically prelim/final meets, last chance meets, or specific target meets will be ‘suited’ meets.  All championship meets are technical suit meets.  Please read the Delta Aquatics tech suit recommendation list by age.  

We recommend boys to train and race in briefs so there is more of an effect of compression in a technical suit at taper meets, but jammers are allowed.  Women’s two piece suits are not allowed in competition or practice.

Swimmers will wear their Delta Aquatics team cap at all practices.

Delta Aquatics Tech Suit Guide

Tech suits are high-performance suits which have gained a great deal of momentum in recent years. Technology is helping swimmers swim faster and faster as they reduce more and more drag in the water. Does your swimmer need a tech suit? NOPE! They do not, but as they get older and/or faster, they may want one. If you're considering purchasing a tech suit, make sure you do a fitting so you know the suit will fit correctly. Tech suits can be purchased through Simply Swimming and for certain Senior qualifying meets, swimmers who participate may be eligible for a discounted price.

As tech suits are just a piece of the puzzle of swimming, our team will utilize the following guide for what suits to use by age/swimming level.

Tech suits WILL NOT be used at regular season meets.  Tech suits may be used at prelim/final meets with coach approval.  Tech suits may be worn at designated 'Target' meets.  Tech suits may be worn at Championship meets. Meets where tech suits are able to be worn will state it on the meet page for that meet. Please note USA Swimming banned tech suits for 12&U swimmers and the suit listed below is on the approved list from our sponsor Speedo, read more here.


12 & U - Speedo Aquablade Record Breaker / Speedo Aquablade Jammer or Brief 


13 & Older - Speedo LZR Elite / Speedo Racer X
