  • 2020-2021 Parking Pass for the Community School/Norris Pool:  All athletes can pick up your parking passes from Maria Sunyak maria@t2aquatics.com in our pool office starting the week of August 17, 2020.
  • T2 Team Cap:  All athletes get one of these when registering for the year. 
  • T2 Team Meet Shirts:  1 Blue and 1 Gray Team T2 Meet Shirts.  New T2 athletes get these at registration.  If you need a replacement you can order at the T2 Apparel Store.
  • T2 Team Logo Racing Suit:  NEW T2 LOGO RACING SUIT COMING SOON!  END OF SUMMER 2020!!!
  • Practice Suit (Practice suits should be an appropriate training suit – no board shorts or SPF shirts should be worn.)
  • Tech Suit (See Guidelines Below):  These suits are for generally for older and/or athletes competing at the Florida Championship Meet level.  If you have questions please ask your coach.
  • Water Bottle:  Cuts down on interruptions to the practice.  Please make sure it is large enough to last the athlete the entire practice.
  • Goggles (All athletes use these; mirrored or dark colored lenses are the best for outside swimming)
  • Arena Mesh Bag:  Swimmers use this to keep their fins, kickboard and sometimes goggles and cap in.  Wet stuff goes in here and it is kept by the swimmer’s lane.  It is mesh so it dries easily.  (Athletes should also have an additional bag for their dry items.  This bag can be a T2 Arena backpack or another backpack/duffle bag that you already have.  This dry bag should be kept away from the edge of the pool.)
  • Arena Kickboard:  We use these almost every day at practice for kicking skill/speed/endurance work.
  • Finis Floating Fin:  We use these almost every day at practice for kicking and swimming skill/speed/endurance work.
  • Arena Powerfin Pro:  We use these almost every day at practice for kicking and swimming skill/speed/endurance work.
  • Arena Swim Snorkel Pro:  This is a front mount swimming snorkel.  It helps with head position in the pool.  Please get the “pro” it is less expensive and has less parts to break.
  • Arena Freeflow Pull Buoy:  This is for freestyle pulling sets.  It helps with body position in the water.
  • Arena Elite Hand Paddles:  These help with stroke power and technique in all strokes but mainly in Freestyle.  We recommend the Medium size for Age Groupers and the Large size for Senior athletes.
  • Optional Items That Most Swimmers Enjoy:
    • T2 Team Arena Backpack:  This is a larger than normal backpack that is great for holding extra clothes, shoes, jackets, towels, goggles, caps.  This is a very popular item for athletes on the team since they are big and have special pockets for wet items. 
    • T2 Team Hoodie:  This is great to have for meets and practices when the temperature drops a little bit.  Having the hood for your head is awesome!
    • T2 Team Parka:  This is a very long jacket that athletes can use in the winter.  It is great to cover up quickly after practices and during meets.
  • Special 2020 Gear Pack: (For select training groups):  We have multiple new small equipment items for athletes in AGD Blue, AGP, Senior 1, Senior 2, and HP. T2 will be ordering and charging $15 for AGD Blue starter pack and $20 for the AGP/S1/S2/HP starter pack.  This will get all of these groups started off fresh with the complete Gear Pack.  If you need a replacement of the Dryland Pulling Band, Dryland Mini Band, Wiffle Balls or Kick Stick, we will charge your account $3.  If you need a new jump rope or Finis Pulling Band, you must order a replacement online on your own.  Please write your name on all equipment in the Gear Pack.
