Team Suit
Just like wearing team shirts, parkas, caps, etc., we have designated meet suits with the DSA logo that our swimmers are required to wear during swim meets. Instead of our swimmers wearing a variety of different suits and colors that include designer prints, high school suits, and practice suits, we feel it's important to look like a TEAM.
Our designated team suits are practical, yet effective for racing and are perfect for early to mid-season competition for our older swimmers (please refer below to our Tech Suit Policy for championship meets), and ideal for our younger swimmers year round.
The suits we have selected allow for some choice and flexibility in design and material.
  • Speedo Lycra Solids (Black and Royal Blue)
  • Speedo Aquablade (Black and Royal Blue)
  • Speedo The One Endurance One Piece
  • Swim meet suits should be used only during competition. Swimmers should also have a practice swim suit.
  • To find descriptions of each swimsuit or for Team Apparel & Equipment, please go our team page at MI Sports.







Tech Suit
Technical Suits (any swimsuit with a FINA approved stamp) will only be worn at specific meets during the season as designated by the DSA coaching staff.  These meets will include.....all end of the season championship meets (i.e. State, Silver State, Sectionals, etc), a mid-season meet designated by the coaching staff (i.e. Pioneer Open or similar), or in specific cases where a swimmer is trying to acheive a new time standard (at coach's discretion only).
  • Tech suits are designed with several purposes in mind, more so for older, further developed swimmers.  Muscle compression created by the suit aids in both racing and recovery.  The actual material really only works once a swimmer reaches a certain speed in the water. The actual fit of the suit also plays a big part.  If the suit is too loose at the hips or waist, the effectiveness of the design becomes null and void.
  • As swimmers get older in their swimming careers, the use of tech suits becomes less and less. Often times, senior swimmers will only wear tech suits maybe three times a year during big meets. The feeling of only wearing the suit on a limited basis will actually allow for the swimmer to take advantage of its intended design.
12 & Unders
As of September 1, 2020, USA Swimming has banned the use of tech suits by 12 & Under swimmers.  Please go to USA Swimming's Tech Suit page to find restricted and allowed suits.  The nice people at MI Sports will also be able to help parents/swimmers.
