Malden YMCA

Suit Fitting: Wednesday, October 4th!

The Malden YMCA Crocs team suit fitting will be held at the YMCA on Tuesday October 4th from 4:30-6:30pm in room 22 (across from the locker rooms).  


NEW SWIMMERS should plan on attending at some point so that you can make sure to get the right size suit. Team suits and caps fit differently than practice suits, and should only be worn at swim meets!  All suits come with the team logo on them, so they cannot be returned and you cannot get a refund! Coaches will be available to help properly size your swimmers.


All swimmers NEED a team suit, team cap and team and t-shirt. 


RETURNING SWIMERS can  wear last year's suit, provided it is still in good condition (properly fitted, logo in-tact, no pills, no holes).  If you did not order a suit last year, you will most likely need to order a new one this season – come to the fitting to ensure proper size! 


There will be NO purchases made on Wednesday.  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, or will be available on the webpage after October 4th.
