Sponsor Spotlight - Team Aquatics Supplies

What do you think of when you hear the words "outlet" or "warehouse?"  If you are like me, you think of deals!  And that is exactly what I found when I visited  Team Aquatic Supplies Calgary location.  (Phillips Park Mall, D7, 6115 3rd Street SE, Calgary, AB, T2H 2L2)

They have a massive selection of the latest styles of swimsuits; and alongside one wall, there are bins of discounted "Grab Bag" swimsuits.  (Don't forget, MRT athletes receive an additional discount!)  If order a "Grab Bag" suit online, you receive your specified size, but the style will be a surprise.  If you come into the store, you can rifle through the bins and choose your suit.  Either way, this is where you need to go to buy your swimsuits!

Team Aquatic Supplies also carries a wide range of swimming accessories:  From swim staples like goggles, pull buoys, fins, swim caps, and paddles, to specialty items like underwater MP3 players, books, dvds, and swimming watches, they really do carry just about anything and everything related to swim-training.  And if they don't have the item you are looking for, ask.  Craig Pollard, manger of the Calgary location told me that they often source out and bring in new products due to customer requests.

The same idea goes for the website.  I noticed that the Calgary location had some items that weren't listed on the website.  (I recently placed an order of paddles from their site, and when I was at the warehouse, discovered they had an even wider selection of styles and brands of paddles.)  If you are on the Team Aquatic website and don't see what you are looking for, give your nearest Team Aquatic Supplies location a call.  The chances are really good that they carry it.

The bottom line?  If you are looking to make any kind of swim-related purchase, check out Team Aquatic Supplies first!

You can order directly from their website or visit one of their four well-stocked warehouse locations across Canada and three retail locations in British Columbia.
