2018 Team Swimsuits & Caps

Summer Swim Team 2019  —  Important Suit & Cap Information:

We are partnering again with Swim Gear of North Carolina for our team swimsuits and swim caps.


Official team suit will be the same as last year: the TYR Durafast Elite solid in black for both girls and boys.  Girls will have the option again between the Diamondfit (thin strap) or Maxfit (thick strap).  Boys will have the option of jammers or briefs.

Team suits will be available for purchase and we are awaiting 2019 pricing, but for reference, here is the 2018 pricing:

Female suit:         $61.00

Male Jammer:     $44.00

Male Brief:           $36.00

Swimmers are encouraged to have a team suit, but it is not required.  If not purchasing a team suit, we ask that swimmers wear a suit with our team colors during meets if possible.

With proper care, these suits will last you through the summer and beyond. Please, do NOT wring or twist your suit, and do not put your suit in a machine which spins to remove excess water, it stretches the material. Simply rinse your suit out with cool tap water, and lay flat to dry.

Grinning Gators

As we begin our 10th season offering the Grinning Gators developmental program we are pleased to announce some new and exciting changes. The Grinning Gators program will now be offered 4 days per week, Monday – Thursday for five weeks from June 10, 2019, until July 11, 2019, at the cost of $90/swimmer. The Grinning Gators program will now be led by our new Grinning Gators Program Director and will focus entirely on our youngest swimmers aged 8 and under. This program has been designed to help our youngest swimmers improve their water confidence and stroke technique. Grinning Gators should be comfortable putting their face in the water. 

Swimmers who register for Swim Team or Grinning Gators during Registration Weekend receive their 2019 team t-shirt FREE!
