We will be ordering team suits from DJ sports again this year. Cutoff for ordering is May 26th in order to get our suits for the first meet on June 23rd. There were some manufacturing issues with suit quality last year. The logos were done in vinyl. If you had issues with the vinyl peeling off and have pictures or still have the suit please reach out to me. I am working with the rep on how to handle this. This year all printing will be silk screened on the suits as they were every other year prior to last year.
To order follow the link to https://djsports.com/teams/kstc If you aren’t sure about sizing, I should have a box of suits from DJ Sports by the swim team meeting for you to try on.
Please reach out to me if you have any additional questions or feel free to ask at the meeting on 5/14. For quickest response text me. My work schedule at the hospital is crazy right now and it is easiest for me to check my phone in between patients vs logging into email. I do regularly check email, it just might take a couple of days if I am in the middle of a work stretch. Can’t wait to see you all! Go Kent!
