  • Wear an appropriate swimsuit (no board shorts, rash guards or skirts)
  • Visit the Team Store: All the equipment you need for your swimmer!
    • We are sponsored by Speedo and require all our swimmers to wear and use Speedo gear at practice and at swim meets
    • Password: nca (all lowercase)
  • Bring goggles! Your coach will give you your first NCA swim cap (latex, non-personalized)
  • Have your equipment labeled with your name and in a mesh gear bag so that it doesn't get lost
    1. Kickboard
    2. Fins
    3. Snorkel (depending on age group)
  • Be 5-10 minutes early to meet your new coach and new friends.
