New YCBC Club Kit!
We are excited to introduce a fresh new kit for you to wear when representing your club!
The kit is unique to YCBC, and we hope that our squad swimmers will enjoy wearing it. The new kit will give us a more visible identity as a club, both at galas and to the general public.
The new collection of Club Kit has been designed specifically for us with Kukri, after taking feedback from many of our swimmers. It is fresh and stylish with a modern look and a good quality finish, and includes a range of items to suit all tastes. The kit will be available to purchase directly from Kukri from the online CLUB SHOP held on their website (see below). You will not be able to buy these items from our existing Club Shop, run by Jean, and YCBC will not be holding any stock of these items.
Over the course of the year, our coaches would like all swimmers to be wearing at least the new style top and shorts as the minimum ‘Poolside Kit’ when representing YCBC so that we have a more visible team presence when attending galas. The other items of clothing are optional, and swimmers and parents have no obligation to order multiple items.
The new kit will be available to purchase in specified ‘windows’, as items will be made to order in batches – there will be several windows each year when items of kit can be ordered e.g. there will be a window before our September gala, and a window for pre-Christmas purchases. This helps to spread the cost by allowing the purchase of one or two items per window. The ordering windows are strict windows, and the dates when the windows are due to open and close will be specified by Kukri.
How to order
Access the dedicated YCBC Club Shop with Kukri via the link below:
Details of the prices* and sizes of individual items from our range of kit can be viewed on the Kukri ‘YCBC Web Shop’. Additional items, such as leggings, will be added in time for the second order window.
Use the ‘Refine your Search’ option on the left hand side of the screen to bring up all the items available in a particular size. This is particularly helpful for the ‘Youth’ size garments, which are not currently listed alongside the adult sized item in all cases.
Clicking on the individual items will show you a reverse view of the garment.
Please be aware that the prices* shown on the initial page are not the final prices – Kikri need to separate the ‘Environmental Premium’ added to each item, whilst VAT is payable on all clothing ordered in age 14 years and adult sizes – these costs are added as you progress your order and the final price will be shown when you get to the checkout. Kukri are unfortunately not able to show the prices any other way.
- As you select each item, the Kukri website includes a link to a comprehensive measuring and size guide – we strongly advise you to read the relevant section thoroughly before placing your order. This is by far the safest way of deciding on sizes. Please note that York City Baths Club will not be able to resolve any individual queries once an order has been placed with Kukri.
- Kit can be personalised by adding your swimmer’s name to the right sleeve of the tops and hoodies when ordering. Please make sure that you type the name correctly at the time of ordering as neither Kukri or York City Baths Club can be responsible for mis-spelt names.
- As the kit is bespoke to YCBC, Kukri are only able to accept returns in the event of a manufacturing error. This error must be reported and returned within 28 days of delivery.
There will be 3 ordering windows this year:
Opens: Tuesday 9th May 2017
Closes: Friday 21st May 2017
Delivered: Friday 21st July 2017
Opens: Saturday 1st July 2017
Closes: Sunday 16th July 2017
Delivered: Before the YCBC September Gala
Opens: September 2017**
Closes: October 2017**
Delivered: Before Christmas
**Exact dates to be confirmed
The first ordering window is deliberately short and will close swiftly. This is to give those swimmers hoping to represent the Club at National level competition the opportunity to purchase items from the new kit in time for these events – there is no obligation to place an order in the initial window, and further opportunities will be available to swimmers in time for our gala and Christmas.
All kit will be delivered, to the club as a bulk order, around 8 weeks after the ordering window closes (the first order is likely to take around 9 weeks). We will then distribute the order as soon as it arrives.
Ordering windows will be updated on this web page so please return to keep up-to-date.
YCBC are happy for any parents to order items for themselves too, if they would like to, to create a more visible support from the stands when at galas. Again, there is no obligation to do this.
We hope that all or squad swimmers will enjoy wearing the new kit, and will be proud to be recognised as part of Team YCBC, regardless of which squad they train with.
Please note: Other items of YCBC merchandise will still be able to order locally from our Club Shop, and can be viewed on the dedicated Club Shop page. These include badged polo shirts and plain black badged hoodies, which can be personalised, along with embroidered towels, Tshirts, YCBC squad hats, and items of training kit such as floats and fins.
All other kit items such as jammers, costumes, bags, towels, water bottles and other items of training kit can be purchased online via ProSwimwear via the link on our website – the club receives a commission on purchases from Proswimwear made through this special link, so please click on the link each time you make a purchase.
