We strongly recommend you place your name on all of your items. If items become a part of the “lost and found” they can be very difficult to retrieve. Many items look the same. Names on all items are a necessity. It is recommended to purchase a mesh bag, these are the best way to keep everything in one location.

Team Swim Caps

All swimmers participating in meets will be issued one latex team cap per season. These caps are to be worn at all swim meets. If you lose your team cap, you can purchase another cap for a minimal fee. Silicone team caps are also available for a charge of $10. Personalized caps are available for group ordering at various times throughout the fall/winter and spring/summer seasons. Ordering information will be made available at those times.

Team Competition Suit

Our team suit is selected by the coaching staff for perfomance at swim competition and to reflect a team appearance.  When purchasing a competition suit, please keep in mind that they are designed to fit snugly. Do not buy suits that swimmers will "grow into". Team suits and other deck apparel including warmup jackets, pants, parkas and more can be purchased online at  Elsmore Swim Shop.  The current team suit is a TYR polyester with team logo. 

Championship Suits

Swimmers competing at the higher levels of the sport, such as the State Meet or any other Championship competition often purchase championship suits. These suits are specifically designed and tailored to create the fastest possible suit for competition. The TYR Tracer or TYR Fusion are the best suits to recommend for Championship suits. Contact Elsmore Aquatic to order.
