Lost Creek Aquatics is a Speedo sponsored team. Our preferred team vendor is Elsmore Swim Shop. All items can be ordered online and will be shipped directly to you within one to two days, in most cases. Shipping is free on orders of more than $49.00. Elsmore carries our team equipment and suits, and Speedo purchases will receive our Speedo team discount. Although you can purchase most items anywhere you choose, Elsmore is the only vendor that can offer you our LCA Speedo team discount.

 

If you already have gear, you don't need to purchase new items (for example, if you have a red kickboard or a Tyr kickboard, that is fine and you don't need to purchase a blue kickboard). However, we ask that our athletes do not use gear or wear swim caps or swim suits that are branded by other teams.

 

The coaches would like athletes to have their equipment by the third week of practice, at the latest. If you're not sure of what you equipment you need, please ask your coach.

 

It is your choice to purchase warmups, parkas, backpacks, or a team suit. If you need to purchase a new swimsuit, we recommend getting an LCA team suit and you can wear it to practices and to meets. We also recommend parkas for swimmers who will be practicing with us when the weather turns colder. Parkas are in high demand across the country once the weather changes, so we recommend ordering them early. Our advice for growing athletes is to get a larger sized parka and grow into it. However, swimsuits should be TIGHT--no growing into suits! 

 

We will visit each location to provide opportunities for kids to try on the team suits for sizing. You'll receive details about these dates via email. All orders will be done online through our team store, and items will be shipped directly to you.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT PADDLES: Hand paddles are sized based on shoulder strength, and NOT based on hand size. Please get the paddles your coach asks your swimmer to purchase to prevent shoulder injuries! 

 

Swimmers are encouraged to bring a yoga mat or a thick towel with them to practice on days when they have dryland practices. The yoga mat is NOT available from Elsmore. You can get a yoga mat from any website or from Target or Dicks. Any half-inch yoga mat is fine.
