Equipment Needed

AQUADILLO TEAM SUIT — We will have a new team suit this year! You will be able to purchase suits on April 21st at the Parent Meeting.  Swimmers not wearing the appropriate suit at meets will not be eligible to participate.

  • Locally D & J Sports will give Dillo families a 25% discount on suits. Just tell them you're a Dillo swimmer!

PRACTICE SWIM SUITS —Please have your child wear an appropriate racing style swim suit to practice. We do not recommend bikinis, sun shirts or sun suits as they will slow the swimmers down and inhibit their stroke development.  

AQUADILLOS CAP — Please write your child's name in black sharpie clearly and largely on the caps. Children look the same in suits, goggles, and caps; this will help the coaches identify and learn your swimmers name during the first month of practice.

FINS/KICKBOARDS — Swimmers must provide their own fins and kickboards for practice. 

GOGGLES — There are many goggles made for "kid-sized-eyes." We would suggest trying on a few goggles for fit. Speedo, TYR, and Water Gear all make simple goggles that should offer a good fit for children. Take the goggles carefully out of the box. Place eye pieces on eyes. Press lightly but firmly. If it is a good fit the goggles should seal and stay "sucked-on" the eye socket area for a few seconds. And, while the large lenses may work great for snorkeling — remember that's not what we're doing at the pool. Super-sized goggles don't stay on as easily when diving in. We also recommend getting a second spare set of goggles for the meets.

TEAM T-SHIRT — Each swimmer receives a classic current year t-shirt with registration.
