Suits and Caps
Our new suits are in!  We have chosen Speedo Cyber Swirl suits and they really look great!  Cost is $52 for girls and $34 for boys.

We have latex swim caps in stock and they are $3 each.   We are planning on ordering silicone caps this year as well.  The silicone caps are the same design, but fit much better than the latex.  Beth Patterson will have a sample for you to look at at the swim team kick-off.  The cost for the silicone caps is $12, but most people will tell you they are well worth it!
