SWIMMER EQUIPMENT
SUIT FITTING IS ANNOUNCED BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF EACH SEASON

*Suits
Suits will be ordered through Metro Swim Shop. A fitting for all swimmers will be announced prior to the beginning of the season. It is also advisable to purchase a “cheaper” practice suit – online or at a sports store. The team suits are fairly expensive and will not last the entire season if they are worn for all the practices.

*Swim Caps
Team caps will be available for purchase at the suit fitting for $10. It is best to have multiple caps (does not have to be team caps) in your swimmer’s bag in case one tears or is misplaced. The option of ordering personalized caps will be available via Metro Swim Shop at the suit fitting. Additional team caps will be available for purchase during the year.
