Swimming Attire For Swim Meets

Dec 6, 2007
Every neighborhood pool will begin forming a swim team in May of each year. Each swim team will belong to a swim organization that will monitor the progress of teams throughout the summer months. This organization will have guidelines in place that will dictate the type of swimwear that will need to be worn by all participants at every swimming meet.

Various colors will be assigned by the swim organization for use as team colors. These colors will be incorporated into the swimwear selections that are worn by each team. The swimsuits will also have a team mascot or logo assigned that represents the team in some way. One neighborhood swim team might be named the gators and have an alligator stitched into the material.

The colors used for the team mascot or logo will be stitched in one matching color. The swimsuit color will be the remaining color choice that is assigned by the swim organization at the start of the swimming season. These colors will normally remain the same for as long as the swim team remains a part of that swimming organization. The mascot or logo will usually be professionally embroidered onto various styles of swimwear.

Some swim teams will choose the same image as their team logo. Current swimwear designs for swimming meets allow the swimmers to have the option of having the image embroidered into the fabric on the front or back of the swimwear. Teams with the same logos or mascots will usually assign one specific area to stitch their logo on so fans will know which team is being represented when the swimmers enter the pool.

The swim team will also be able to special order swim caps made of latex rubber in their team colors as part of their swimming attire. All swimmers might not like the form fitting caps, but must adhere to the rules issued by the swimming organization and are expected to wear these swimmer's caps during all swimming competitions. The swimmer's caps can be removed from the head after the swimmer has exited the pool.

The most common swimming attire worn by swim teams in competitive swimming meets will be a one-piece swimsuit made of spandex and rayon materials. Male swimmers will be assigned Speedo styled shorts to wear at every swimming meet and must rely on drawstrings to keep the swimsuits on the body. Some boys do not care for these swimsuit styles because they cling to the body very closely.

The material used for swimsuits will stretch when the swimmer is in the water and keep its shape when the swimmer comes out of the water. The stretchy material will make it easier for the swimmer to glide through the water and meet less resistance while swimming in the water. The spandex materials will ensure that the swimsuit does not slip or ride up while the swimmer is performing various swim strokes during swimming competitions. The close fit of the swimsuit will give the swimmer a sleek appearance that is pleasing to fans and those that judge the swimming competitions.
