Suit Fitting Info

Reminder the suit fitting will be held at the YMCA on Tuesday September 29th from 5:30-7:30pm in room 22 (across from the locker rooms).  All new swimmers should plan on attending at some point so that you can make sure to get the right size suit.  Our suits come with our logo on them so they cannot be returned and you cannot get a refund, so come eliminate the guesswork and try them on with us!
 
All swimmers NEED a team suit and t-shirt.  If you are a returning swimmer you can still wear last year'ssuit, as long as it is still in good condition.  If you did not order asuitlast year, you need to order a new one this season, so come to thefitting
 
 
The suit will be the same as last year and the t-shirt and cap will be different. The vendor will also have other apparel (warm-up suits, hoodies, shorts, caps) to try on at the fitting.  ** Please remind your swimmer that team suits and caps are for meets ONLY and should NOT be worn to practice!
 
USA swimmers NEED at least 2 NEW caps (If they still have a MAL cap from New Englands last year, then they only need 1 more) a jacket or hoodie.  Full warm-up suits (jacket and pants) and bags are also suggested for USA swimmers.
 
There will be NO purchases made on Tuesday.  This is just a fitting to make sure you will be ordering the correct size.  All purchases will be made at a later date, online, through our vendor.  Instructions on ordering will be given to you at the fitting.
 
If you cannot come to the fitting you can always drive over to Varsity Swim Shop (our vendor).  They are located at 157 Main St. in North Reading.  Their hours are limited - Monday-Friday 10a-5p and Saturday 10a-2p.  We are very lucky that they come to us, so I would recommend attending on Tuesday!

Group Placements and Practice Schedule posted!

Group placements are listed for all returning swimmers who have made their $75 deposit.  The group list and practice schedule can be found under the "News and Updates" tab.  If you would like to return to the team, but do not see your name listed, please contact the coaching staff at maldencrocs@gmail.com so that they may place you in a group.

Kelvin is the FIRST EVER finalist at Nationals!

A HUGE congratulations goes out to Kelvin Nguyen. Kelvin is the FIRST EVER Malden swimmer to qualify for FINALS at the Y National Championship. Kelvin swam an impressive 28.69 during the 50 meter back preliminaries which earned him a 21st place seed and a trip back to the finals evening session. Kelvin finished 19th overall with his EXACT seed time of 28.69 during finals. Congrats to Kelvin, the 19th fastest Y 50m backstroker in the Nation!
