The BUCS team suit for the 2019 season is the same suit from the last few years for both boys and girls that embraces the classic competitive swimsuit design. It is a Tyr Phoenix Splice suit in blue and black. There are two options for boys (jammer and racer) and girls (thin and thick straps).
There will be one suit fittings on April 10 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in the Hill Middle School Commons. It is recommended that all new suits be fitted to ensure a proper fit. If the date of the fitting does not work, suits can be tried on at or called into Swimmers Edge in Woodridge (near the 355 exit at 75th) until April 15. Delivery of suits will be immediate if they are in stock or approximately 4 weeks from the fitting with no additional fees. Shipping and handling will be included on any suit ordered after April 22. Previous years' suit will also be considered proper attire for a swim meet.
Please use the following link to order your suit online:
Each swimmer will be given a BUCS t-shirt. Custom orders of silicone caps will be accepted by Swimmers Edge for $11 or 2 personalized ones for $30. New swimmers will be given a BUCS latex cap. There will be extra BUCS caps if yours is lost or damaged.
A team suit and team cap (or plain yellow or blue silicone cap), if worn, are mandatory at all swim meets. A swimmer will not be allowed to compete in a meet without the required team suit and cap.
Any issues with suits or suit quality should be communicated with John Schalk at (312) 420-4077
If you are looking to purchase new, or spruce up your BUCS wear, it is available online or in store. The store is TBD.
Don't forget that each swimmer gets a free 2019 BUCS t-shirt. New swimmers will also get a latex Bucs cap. We will not be automatically giving every returning swimmer a new swim cap, but they will be available if theirs is lost or damaged. These will be available at the first practice or Time Trials.
