Elite Aquatics Sports Team Swim Suit and Team Apparel Policies

Elite Aquatics Sports Team is a TYR sponsored program. This means that TYR partners

with EAST in various ways.

The EAST uniform is a TYR brand Royal blue EAST logoed swim suit and is expected to be

worn in all competitions, along with TYR Warm-up suits and EAST Team apparel.

Swimmers are also expected to wear the EAST team swim cap for warm ups and competitions.

You may wear appropriate training swimwear of your choice for daily workouts, however,

females are required to wear a one piece training suit at all times.

Elite Aquatics Sports Team is in accordance with all FINA and USA Swimming rules regulating

competition suits, which states:

1. Swimsuits for men may not extend above the navel or below the knee and for women may

not cover the neck or extend past the shoulders or below the knee;

2. Material used for swimsuits can be only textile fabric which is defined as materials consisting

of natural and/or synthetic, individual and non-consolidated yarns used to constitute a fabric

by weaving, knitting, and/or braiding;

3. No zippers or other fastening devices are allowed except for a waist tie on a brief or jammer.

Many of the swimsuits manufactured are no longer allowed under the new rules and care

should be taken when purchasing a suit to ensure it does meet the new requirements.

In addition, Southern California Swimming rules dictate that all male suits worn at SCS Age­

Group Meets shall not extend above the navel.

The suit policy may sometimes change based on international rules governing suit technologies

and all EAST members will be made aware of such changes.

If you have any questions, please talk to your coach.
