We are changing the suit design this year. If your swimmer's suit from last year still fits, you do not need to order a new suit. There will be plenty of swimmers wearing last year's suit.
We will be ordering Tyr suits through Making Waves. The website to order the suits will be up in mid March (coinciding with team suit try ons). The Stingrays website to order suits will be open through April 3rd.
Girl's suits will be $70. Boys briefs/jammers will be $42/$48.
Fins, paddles, and equipment will also be available on the main Making Waves website, even after the Stingrays specific site is closed.
Suit try on dates will be at the James Lemos Pool on:
- Monday, March 16th, 2020 from 4:30-6:30
- Tuesday, March 31st, 2020 from 4:30-6:30
Suits will be ordered by you, directly from the Stingrays Making Waves website, and will be shipped directly to you. You will be able to order the team suits through April 3rd, 2020. The turnaround time will be approximately 3 weeks from the time of order.
Team swimsuits are not a requirement, but encouraged. Girls wear a one-piece swim suit and boys wear jammers (similar to bike shorts) or briefs.
We encourage everyone to have and wear a team suit at all of our swim meets. Wearing a team suit helps promote team spirit and unity. The life of the team suit will be extended if only worn at meets and properly rinsed with water after exiting the pool.
Care: Suits will last a long time if properly cared for. Immediately after each use, rinse in cold water and hang to dry. Never wash in detergent, even Woolite, or place in the dryer.
Caps - Swim caps, although not required, are a good idea. A swim cap keeps your hair out of your face and provides great water run off during races. It is recommended that you put your swimmer’s name on the inside of the cap with an appropriate waterproof marker.
Goggles - Wearing goggles is a good idea to protect the eyes from the chlorine and other irritants.
Fins - 7 and up swimmers are required to bring their own fins to wear during practice. If your child has never worn fins before, they can try them out at practice from the bin of fins first. Then you can order them online or purchase them from swim shops
All equipment needs to be labeled with your child's name. The coaches and the Board of Directors and lifeguards are not responsible for misplaced or damaged items.
Team T-shirts - As a part of registering for the team, each swimmer will receive a team t-shirt. Sizes will be requested at during your on line registration. If you do not request a size, a best guess will be made based on your child's age. T-shirts will be distributed at Time Trials, just before the team picture is taken.
