There is no requirement to purchase the YMCA Swim Team swim suit, sweats, shorts, or t-shirts although they are available for purchase on the website. One silicone swim cap will be provided to the participants when they start the team and this cap must be worn at swim meets. Replacement and additional caps after their first cap can be purchased ($10.00 for silicone) if they are participating in swim meets. The team swim cap is not required to be used during practice. Team apparel may be ordered from our on-line team store on our team website.
A good pair of SWIM GOGGLES (or TWO) with your child's name on them is essential and required for practice!! They allow your child to open his/her eyes and not to swim blindly in the dark! For your younger children, they take a little getting used to, but please persevere; it will be well worth it.
