Goggles and such
Required equipment includes goggles, swim cap and team t-shirt. Team swim suit is optional.
Team Swimcap & Team Tshirt
A team swimcap and team tshirt is included in your registration fee, and will be given to the swimmer before the first dual meet. Swim Caps are strongly encouraged for all swimmers, regardless of hair length, for all practices and meets. This is to protect your swimmer's hair from the chlorine and to protect the community pool from an overabundance of floating hair. Team T-shirts are worn to all dual meets and anywhere else your swimmer is willing to show off their team spirit!
By TSA regulation only BC Barracuda swim caps or solid color caps are allowed at meets. Additional caps will be available for purchase.
The cost is EXTRA (not included in your registration fee). The 2019 Team Swimsuit is the "TYR Perseus Durafast Diamondfit" in blue/green for girls and the "TYR Perseus Durafast Jammer or Brief" in blue/green for boys. This suit is sold through All American Swim located at 1231 North West Maynard Road, Cary 27513. Swimmers will be able to view, try on and/or purchase their team swimsuit during the Open House on April 27, 2019 any time between 2:00pm and 4:00pm. Alternatively, you may purchase this suit online. Be cautioned the girls' suits matters on the "cut." Do not purchase the "cutout fit" in the girls suits, it has limited coverage.
Team suits are not required. Your swimmer may wear a plain black or blue suit to any swim meet. Swim suits with another swim team logo is not permitted during any dual swim meet.
We strongly suggest you have ANOTHER suit for your child to wear during practices. If your kids wear their team suit every time they come to practice it is HIGHLY unlikely to last the 8 week season.
Goggles are also required equipment. The cost is EXTRA (not included in your registration fee). They can be purchased from any sport/swim retailer.
Be sure to put your child's name on all belongings, including swim caps, goggles and t-shirt. Sharpie pens are a summer league swimmer's best friend!
