This fun team activity made an appearance last season as an alternative to puffy paint. It was tons of fun so we’re doing it again! Below is a list of what we’ll provide and what you need to bring.
We’ll start tie-dying immediately following the meet and it should take 60-90 minutes to mix the dye, do the shirts and wrap them up in plastic.
What We Will Provide
Colors: Wine, fuchsia, pink, red, orange, coral, yellow, lime, green, teal, royal blue, navy blue and purple
White V-neck shirts (in a limited number – 8 smalls & 8 mediums)
Please try to remember a t-shirt, we’d hate to run out and have people unable to tie-dye
Print-outs of tie-dying techniques (folds, swirls, double swirls, ect)
What You Need to Bring
$3 for tie-dye materials above ($5 if you’re using one of our shirts)
White T-shirt for tie-dying
If you’d like – extra tank top, chamois, towels or bandanas to tie-dye (if extra dye is available)
If you’d like – additional colors of tie-dye if you have some or want colors not listed above
Instructions for After Tie-Dye
Leave the dyed items in plastic for 3-24 hours.
Unwrap and undo rubber bands.
Rinse several times thoroughly in cold water to get rid of excess dye.
Wring. Air dry (outside might be best).
When first washing, do so separately from other clothes.
On Monday (8/19), bring your handy work to practice! We want to see everyone’s and snap pictures of the completed projects.
Note: This is a team building activity. So though many fans will be present at the time trials meet, we’re asking anyone who is not a Lincoln swimmer or coach to head home after the meet. Please plan to pick up your athlete (if needed) around 11:15AM.
