AquaGym Team Uniform
When a swimmer registers with the Club as a junior member, he/she will be given an AquaGym cap. He/she is then required to purchase the AquaGym Jade polo top and AquaGym shorts as the initial basic uniform. This is acceptable Club uniform at Junior Carnival, Junior League and local Club meet level. This basic uniform must be worn to and from all local swim meets as well as being worn poolside between swimmers events. All registered swimmers competing at Canterbury Championship level and above, or at ‘away’ swim meets, must wear full team uniform to, from and at all of these Meets. This is the AquaGym Club Uniform.
