Team Gear

As some of you have heard we have been debating whether to keep our team suit (Speedo Caged Out) for this season.  We have decided to do so believing that we have a small enough number of new swimmers that everyone should be able to get the suit should they need it.  If you need a suit,m we recommend that you order asap from SwimOutlet. 

Some additional reminders and links about all things team gear related:

  • We present ourselves at meets in a team uniform with a uniform look. All items should be team approved and have our logo and be in the team approved colors.
  • Always shop at https://www.swimoutlet.com/bkys/   -not only do they have great prices, they also give a percent back to the Boosters.
  • We are sponsored by Speedo.  per our agreement all swimmers MUST wear Speedo suits at meets.  According to Speedo they will have small enough size tech suits this year for our younger swimmers (should those continue to be allowed).
  • The team backpack is Silver.  Please order the backpack in Silver  - this is the only bag that is permitted to have our logo on it.  Then do the cruise ship tip and add a brightly colored bag tag so that it is easy to find in the sea of team bags.
  • We are OUT of caps and will be placing a new order soon.  Be gentle with yours!

Team T-shirt Orders

Parents you may order a t-shirt for yourself by reply email with your size.  They are $10 for parents (we already have swimmers sizes and there is no charge for swimmers tees) So! Yours truly has finally gotten it together and figured out a t-shirt for the season.  I was having extreme difficulty settling on something that captured how I felt about all the greatness going on in our program and the amazing loyalty we have from our families.  Finally we have something - it is at the printer and should be to us in a week or so.  They will not begin printing until next week, so parents can order shirts (kids get them as part of your fees).  Just let me know what size you want, payment is due to the boosters on receipt of the shirt.  This is a white 100% cotton pre-shrunk t-shirt with "Buckeye Proud" on the back and our team logo on the front left chest.   Orders are due Tuesday morning.

Extra T-Shirts

The Pollock Family has donated about 60 t-shirts sporting the new team logo to our Booster Club. The shirts come in a variety of colors and sizes. Each family will have their chance to pick ONE shirt on Monday or Tuesday at practice. On Wednesday, any shirts remaining will be available to anyone. A donation to the booster club for your shirt is optional. The kids are now receiving their team t-shirts that were made exclusively for kids and coaches. Kast-A-Way has not yet printed our red t-shirts, if you would like to order one I suggest you call today. These shirts are being printed on a light weight t-shirt from Sport Tek.
