Technical Suit Guidelines
Team suits are always expected at meets. Certain meets, however, are deemed as Performance Meets by the coaching staff and technical suits may be worn at these meets in lieu of the team suit. With that said, the following are Recommended Guidelines LGSC has created with the assistance of our Rep, the Swim Outlets management, the philosophical viewpoint of the LGSC coaching staff, and USA Swimming legislation. WE recommend:
Venzo: This is the NEW TYR suit that will be released in January 2019. Check out TYR's Venzo™ Tech Video. LGSC will provide recommendations once the suit has been released.
Avictor: Any 13 & over athlete having achieved a Sectional cut or faster. The Swim Outlet will provide color options available for the Avictor that meet LGSC criteria.
Thresher: Any LGSC athlete not yet having achieved a Sectional cut. The Swim Outlet will provide color options available for the Thresher that meet LGSC criteria.
12 & Under Athletes: LGSC recommends that these athletes do NOT wear a Technical Suit. ** USA Swimming adopted legislation that forbids technical suits for 12 & Under athletes beginning in the Fall of 2020, except those competing at a Junior National or higher meet.
If you or your athlete have questions, please contact your lead coach.
