Technical Sport Shirts

The club is ordering custom made Technical Sports Shirts.

They will be based on the design we voted for earlier this year. They are a breathable 6oz polyester blend. This is both quick drying and stretchy. Should be perfect for fencing! This type of shirt is also usually indestructible and should last a long time.

I highly recommend that everyone gets one!

The cost will be $45. That's including all the taxes and setup fees.
We'll need a minimum order of 25.

If you're interested, I'll need your size and payment before the end of next Tuesday. After that, I'm told it takes about two weeks to have them made.

Please specify if your size category is Adult, Women's, or Children's
