Dear MTSC Families:
Welcome to Mei’s Typhoons Swim Club.
There are a couple of different ways to purchase the equipment that you need. The team store is up and running and the vendor will offer discounts to the team on Arena suits & all our required equipment. You should use this link first for your orders. The link to the team store is below and is also on the MTSC website:
There is also an account at SwimOutlet.com that will give our team credit for the purchase. Please use this as a second source for ordering. The link for that is below, and can also be found on the MTSC website by clicking on “Information” and then “Equipment/Swimwear Ordering Info”:

- Order personalized caps at the beginning of the season from the MTSC store. These must be ordered in multiples of two. Cost is 2 for $36. NOTE: Because of how long it takes for personalized caps to come in, they may not come in time for our first meet. These caps will be shipped directly to Mei, therefore you should not see any shipping costs when ordering.
- If caps are needed during the season, Mei usually keeps several logo caps on hand that you can pay her for directly. Cost is $15 per cap for silicone, $10 per cap for latex.
NOTE: Caps are only ordered once each season.
