Swimmers will also need to purchase a racing suit. Racing suits are used solely for that purpose and are worn much tighter than practice suits to reduce drag. Black is the preferred team color. At a minimum, our athletes are expected to compete with the team cap at all USA Swimming sanctioned meets.

Speedo is our team suit & equipment provider. We are required to use Speedo products whenever possible. Please see the links in Team Store for ordering equipment.
