D & J Sports Offers Custom Swim Team Parkas

29 01 2015
Have you considered custom swim team parkas for your team.

A custom swim team parka can develop a sense of unity.

When the weather is cold, this doesn’t have to mean you give up your time in the pool. When you are a competitive swimmer, it’s important to train all year round, as well as to potentially compete during the colder months of the year. To help keep your muscles warm and prevent getting ill as a result of getting cold after spending time in the water, a swim parka can be just what you need. Whether you choose a Speedo swim parka or a Nike swim parka, you will enjoy incredible warmth so you’re always ready to go.

Represent Your Team

Joining a competitive team means you get to develop camaraderie and a sense of unity with the other swimmers on your team. While many swim teams require you to purchase custom swimwear that matches and may even require your other swim gear to match, custom swim team parkas aren’t always a top priority. However, these can be a valuable tool in promoting this sense of team spirit as well. Purchasing swim parkas that match will help your team feel unified, even in between their races when they’re waiting for their next chance to showcase what they can do.

Stay Warm at All Times

Swimmers often warm up out of the pool, as well as in the pool, before meets. However, this often occurs well before their race or they may participate in more than one race at longer intervals. In either case, it’s important to find ways to stay warm so muscles remain loose and you don’t lose what you worked hard to gain. A Speedo swim parka or Nike swim parka in your swim colors, customized with your team logo, can be a great way to help you stay warm. These parkas often include a hood and pockets so you can keep all parts of your body warm and ready to go.

Swimming is a great sport, but you don’t have to limit your participation to the winter months only. Purchasing custom swim team parkas can be a great way to showcase a sense of unity in your team and keep all your swimmers warm until it’s their turn to shine.

If you’re looking for a good selection of swim parkas to best suit your needs, contact us. D&J Sports can embroider your team name and logo onto any swim parka, including using tackle twill lettering for larger names on the back of the parka.





A Beginner’s Swimming Survival Guide – Part 2 – Parents

30 12 2014
The best goggles and swimwear give your child a better chance of success.

Do your research to ensure you buy the best goggles and swimwear.

As parents, it can be exciting for your child to become involved in something new. For a swimmer’s parents, this means purchasing the right gear and competitive swimwear to make sure your child has just what he or she needs to be a contender. In addition to making sure your child is properly equipped, there’s certain etiquette you should follow to give your child the best chance at success.

Buying the Right Products

Before your child gets started, you need to go shopping together. Swimteam suits are just the beginning. Make sure you talk to your child’s coach about any requirements for swimwear. In general, practice swimsuits are less restricted than those that will be worn during meets. Coaches often get discounts, such as those offered by D&J Sports. In addition to the swimsuit, you should also invest in a pair of the best goggles and a swim parka if the weather is cold where you live. You might even find great swim packs that include some of the items your child wants. These items will ensure your child can swim on a competitive level and will stay safe.

Learn How to Act

The right gear is just one piece of the puzzle to being a good swim parent. While parents want to support their children and make them feel confident in their skills, it’s important to know the right way to act in all swimming situations. For instance, it may seem like a good idea to yell encouragement to your child during practices, but it’s best to be a silent observer. Your child needs to be able to pay attention to the coach so he or she can learn and the other swimmers need to concentrate too. Giving contradictory instructions can also confuse your child. It can also be tempting to rush to your child’s aid to help with an equipment failure. However, it’s best to teach your child to be self-sufficient.

If your child is excited about swimming, it’s important to be able to support them in a way that promotes their success. Buying competitive swimwear, the best goggles and any other necessary accessories can be a great start. However, it’s also essential to learn what is expected of you as a parent and give your child all the tools and support he or she needs to become a great swimmer.

Swim Parkas

Swim parkas become a necessity when the weather is cooler.

Most people don’t go swimming in conditions you would consider cold enough to need to wear a jacket. In fact, most people only think about swimming when the weather is hot or you are inside. However, when it comes to competitive swimming, it is extremely important to keep your muscles warm in between swims, even if the temperature isn’t incredibly cold. Swim parkas are a great way to keep your muscles warmed up between swims to reduce the shock on your body.

Nike Swim Parkas

Nike makes a line of adult and children’s swim parkas that are specifically designed to keep you warm while you are out on the swim deck. This parka is made from water-resistant 100 percent polyester shell with polyester filling. The hood features a drawstring so you can keep your whole body warm, including your head. This parka comes in navy blue and black with a white stripe down the sleeve.

If you are looking for the perfect swim parkas to coordinate your entire team, the Speedo team swim parkas are a great option for you. The water-resistant coat is lined with polar fleece to offer the optimal warmth in between your swims. You will even find a convenient goggle pocket inside so you don’t need to worry about misplacing your goggles. This parka is available in four colors: navy, sapphire, red and black.

TYR Alliance Swim Parkas

Another of your options for swimming in cooler weather is the TYR Alliance swim parka.

One of the unique features of this parka is the Raglan sleeves that provide the best fit, as well as the most freedom of movement possible in a swim parka.

The temperatures in which you may swim can fluctuate, causing you to cool down too much in between your scheduled swims. One of the best ways to ensure you stay warm is by wearing a swim parka in between your swims. These parkas are made from water-resistant material and are lined with warm fleece to help keep you warm. Coordinate your entire team with matching swim parkas or allow each swimmer to pick his or her own.





Shopping for Swim Parkas

Shopping for swim parkas can be overwhelming if you aren’t sure what you’re

Shopping for Swim Parkas

looking for. Swim parkas are meant for those swimming in cold temperatures or between competitions to warm the swimmer after he or she is out of the water. Swim parkas are worn immediately after a swimmer gets out of the pool. Swim parkas are functional and designed for warmth. Companies are constantly toying with technology to improve the quality of swim parkas.

1. Make sure the hood is lined. This is the case for most swim parkas, but not all. A lined hood means the swim parka will warm your head as well as your body. Swim parkas are usually lined in a type of fleece. Other fabrics can get wet and soggy if you put them off immediately after a swim. This allows a swimmer to warm up quickly after getting out of the pool. It is also ideal for triathletes who may be swimming outdoors during cold weather.

2. Make sure it’s water resistant. It doesn’t have to be waterproof, but the swim parka should be water resistant. This prevents you from getting wet if you’re near the pool and get splashed by other swimmers. A nylon outer shell is best for a swim parka for any swimmer.

3. Choose a dark color for a logo. If your team is having their logo or name put on the parka, a dark color is a great background for most designs and fonts. This allows you to play with the design that will go on your swim team parka.

4. Make sure the parka isn’t too big. Swim parkas often run big. Compare your measurements to those provided online so you have a parka that isn’t too big to wear when you’re out of the pool. If it’s too big, the vent at back will often let in air which can be uncomfortable when you’re cold and wet.

Swim parkas are great for those swimming in cold weather conditions, or who want something to cover up with after a swim. Swim parkas are ideal for teams traveling together because everyone has the same jacket in the same color scheme with a logo or team name, allowing you to easily spot teammates in a crowd.
