TEAM CAPS for sale at practice
  • Latex $5

  • Silicone $14

*Swim Caps are mandatory for all AQM whose hair goes into their eyes.  Pony tails are not allowed for swim practice as their hair causes excess drag and unnecessary distraction for the swimmer. Swim caps help swimmers remove the hair and drag from long hair so that they can properly breath and have correct air exhange which is a fundamental skill set for swimming well.

Davis Aquamonsters Team Suits

Arena Solid Black with optional AQM Logo (back right hip)

Swimsuit sizes and clothes sizes are completely different.

Most people find the Arena suits to be a good fit and last longer than other brands. When competing, the Davis Aquamonster policy is that any black suit is acceptable. However, to have the the Davis Aquamonster logo on your swim suit, the swim suit must be ordered through the team store.
