SWIM TEAM GEAR

 

 

 

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT FOR PRACTICE

 

ALL swimmers should come to each practice with the following equipment:

  • Mesh gear bag  
  • Kickboard
  • Pull buoy
  • Goggles
  • Short Fins
  • Hand paddles (Age Group and Senior-level swimmers ONLY)
  • Swim training snorkel 
  • Practice suit (swim suit for girls, jammers or briefs for boys, NO board shorts)
  • Practice caps (NOT current year team competition cap)
  • Lock for locker room locker

 

The team will provide each swimmer with their team cap and team shirt for the season 

The Team Suit is the Speedo "Infinite Pulse" suit.  It is available at multiple online stores for purchase.  It is available in a jammer, brief, crossback and flyback.  

 

For swim meets we ask that all swimmers wear the team suit (Speedo INFINITE PULSE) or a SOLID BLACK competition style suit.  

For Championship meets, swimmers 13 and older are allowed to wear technical suits.  These are suits made of woven fabric and/or have bonded, taped seams.

**Please note that EFSL (and USA Swimming) have banned technical suits for 12&U.  

It is the parent's responsibility to ensure the swimmer is in an approved suit.

If you have any questions, please discuss your suit choice prior to purchase and obtain either the head coach's and/or the head official's approval prior to the meet.
