Wedgewood Team Suit and Personalized Caps

Danzeisen & Quigley is Wedgewood’s supplier for team suits and caps. They are located at 1720 East Route 70 in Cherry Hill. Our team suit is in stock, but you must order your personalized caps by no later than May 21st. Call ASAP!

Personalized caps.  If a swimmer wears a swim cap, it is required to be a Wedgewood cap. They are blue with a white “W” on the side. By popular demand, we are again offering the personalized silicone cap. Personalized caps will have the swimmer’s name (usually last name) in white printed below the “W”. It is much easier to pick out your child in the pool when they are wearing a personalized cap! They are sold in pairs, and the cost is 2 for $26. You do not have to go to D&Q to order personalized caps. Call D&Q at (856) 424-5969 and ask for anyone in the Swim Department, and they will take your order over the phone.

Team Suits.  Our team suit this year is the Nike Cloud (blue) and is shown below. Girls suits come in either Fast Back or Spider Back and are $45, Boys Jammers are $34, and Boys Briefs are $30. The back-up suit will be solid black, from any manufacturer. If for any reason your swimmer is uncomfortable in the team suit, they can wear a solid black suit. Per USA Swimming and therefore Tri-County rules, please note that female suits that tie in the back (many Jolyn suits) are not legal for competition.  The penalty for competing in a suit with a tie-back is a DQ for the swimmer or relay.  These suits are allowed for warm up or practice.

D&Q has periodic sales on swim gear. They are having sales April 21-29 and May 19-28 if you need to stock up on goggles, fins, bags and more at 20% off. Practice suits are 50% off during the sales. Team suits are always sold at our negotiated price. Danzeisen & Quigley is rewarding summer teams on their purchases of team suits and caps! When you make a purchase, let us know what team you are with and D&Q will send your swim team $$$ in July!  If you have any questions, please talk to any of us in the swim department.
