Technical Suit Guidelines
Team suits are always expected at meets. Certain meets, however, are deemed as Performance Meets by the coaching staff and technical suits may be worn at these meets in lieu of the team suit. With that said, the following are Recommended Guidelines FAST has created with the assistance of our TYR Rep, the Elsmore Swim Shop management, and the philosophical viewpoint of the FAST coaching staff. WE recommend:
Avictor: Any 11 and over FAST athlete having achieved a Sectional cut or faster. Avictor would be either Multi Venom or Black Venom.
Thresher: Any 11 and over FAST athlete not yet having achieved a Sectional cut. Thresher would be Grey/Red.
10 and Under Athletes: FAST recommends that these athletes do NOT wear a Technical Suit.
All FAST athletes MUST purchase a TYR Tech Suit if wearing one. NO other brands should be purchased as we want to honor our agreement with TYR.
If you or your athlete have questions, please contact your lead coach.
