Water Polo Suits and Merchandise

focopolo-logoIt is time to purchase Forsyth Triton Water Polo team apparel and game suits! The information for ordering apparel and suits is below. To increase the chances we will have apparel before our first game on August 12, we ask you place your orders by Thursday, August 3. Prices are based on the number of items ordered, so if we can get everyone who is interested in ordering to do so in the next few days it also will help us obtain the bulk price. Parents – don’t forget to order your own spirit wear so we can support our team from the stands!

 

Team Apparel

1. Log onto www.alphashirt.com

2. In the search bar at the top of the page, type in the following code numbers included below to look at the gear – we will be using any of the black/white colors you see there as choices, with a white gear/black logo and black gear/white logo option for all gear color schemes. Once we reach 40 units per color, we get the bulk pricing figures shown below. Scroll down to the bottom of colors to see white. Please order quickly, as the sooner we reach 40 black and white pieces the sooner the costs drop to bulk pricing. If we do not reach 40 units per color, ours costs increase by 30-50% per unit across all gear types.

They are located next to the Gamestop by the Home Depot at Exit 14, at 1070 Market Place Boulevard Cumming 30041. They will call you when your order has arrived for pickup, and you pay when you pick up also.

Game Suits

turbo-dual-layer-womens

League and team rules require all girls wear regulation water polo suits and all boys wear either regulation water polo brief suits (black) or a tight-fit suit of another type.

turbo-comfort-womensFor girls, we recommend the black TURBO Women’s Comfort Water Polo Suit (worn by our girls last year). The TURBO Basic Dual Layer Women’s Water Polo Suit is another potential option. However, any solid black water polo suit is acceptable.

turbo-dual-layer-mensFor boys, the Turbo Basic Water Polo Suit (worn by our boys last year) or TURBO Dual Layer Water Polo Suit in black are good water polo suit options. Water polo suits are available from a variety of online sources, including:turbo-basic-mens

Sizing

The guidance from the Georgia High School Water Polo Association on suit fit and sizing can be found in the GHSWPA Policies document which can be accessed here: http://www.gapolo.com/rules/. For your convenience the sizing information from that document is provided here:

1. The water polo swimming suit for all athletes should be characterized by conformity to suit manufacturer size and fit prescriptions and shall follow the body shape.

2. Water polo swimming suit fitting as prescribed by the manufacturer is recognized by and is acceptable to the GHSWPA League. Any question or issue with swim suit selection and fit shall be addressed by the Club/Team coach with the athlete and the parent/guardian. Among other providers, the following manufacturers provide fit instructions as reference and can be communicated to the athlete and the parent/guardian:
