Cold Water Gear

As promised at practice today - cold water swim gear for our Silver kids to help with the chilly temps at Northland.  If you can find anything made of Polyolefin (especially a swim shirt) that would be a first choice.  Cold water gear should be purchased to fit snug but not tight. Please follow this link if you choose to purchase from Swim Outlet (our boosters will receive a rebate through his link):
www.swimoutlet.com/bkhy

Here are three products in a decent price range:
Aqua Sphere Juniors' Stingray Core Warmer $26.95
Dakin Neo Insulator Rash Guard $38.95
Finis Thermal Training Shirt $44.95

As I told the kids today, one of my fondest memories is a steaming cup of hot chocolate after morning practice (while I loved long course training I did not tolerate the cold water well at all).

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.
