HEAT Team Uniform Policy:

HEAT'S primary sponsor is TYR®. Included in our sponsorship contract is an obligation to wear TYR® equipment at all swimming competitions. We also encourage all swimmers to purchase and utilize TYR® equipment during practice.  In order for HEAT to be recognized as a TYR® sponsor all TYR® gear must be purchased through D&J's Sports, HEAT's official team supplier.

One of our goals here at HEAT is to create the best "Swim Team" for everyone involved with the Heart of Texas Aquatics Team. If you attend or watch any professional sporting event, you will notice the sense of pride that the athletes have with their uniform. It's a tradition that has a deep history, the same history that we have established with HEAT, therefore the HEAT team suit and team cap is required wear for all swim meets and helps establish our team identity.  HEAT members are encouraged to make all purchases through D&J's Sports, HEAT's official team supplier. Logging into D&J's through the HEAT website will take HEAT members to the HEAT D&J's Sports page which will give team members discounts on items purchased through D&J's.  The HEAT cap is the only exception.  It is sold through the HEAT Apparel committee.  Please contact the HEAT Apparel committee chair for your cap order.
