TYR Vendor On SIte at Meet
The team’s TYR gear vendor will be on site with suits, goggles, and other swim and dive gear for sale, and for tech suit fittings. This fitting opportunity will only be available from 11:00 am to approximately 2:00 pm, so swimmers should plan to try on suits before the meet begins if they wish to do so. The vendor is offering discounted pricing on tech suits for Buchholz swimmers.

Tech suits are specialized competition suits that provide compression and repel water. For high school swimmers, tech suits can be worn at the District, Regional, and State meets, but it is not required to purchase and wear one.
