This fun team activity made an appearance last few years as an alternative to puffy paint. It’s been tons of fun and is officially a team tradition! This year we’re switching things up and doing an evening pizza party the Thursday before Time Trials (Aug. 10).
Before school begins, afternoon practice will be 3-5PM. Tie dye will start immediately following practice (around 5:15PM). It typically lasts an hour. We’ll have pizza there for the girls to enjoy for dinner.
Below is a list of we’ll provide and what you need to bring.
What We Will Provide
Rit Tie-Dye Power (available at craft stores or Walmart/Target)
Colors: Red, orange, yellow, green, aqua, navy blue, royal blue, purple, fuchsia
A limited number of White Hanes v-neck t-shirts in small and medium sizes (men’s sizes)
Print-outs of tie-dying techniques (folds, swirls, double swirls, ect)
What You Need to Bring
$5 for tie-dye materials above by Wednesday (8/9/17). ($8 if you need a shirt; limited smalls and mediums available)
Additional white clothing, towels or bandanas to tie-dye if extra dye is available. We ask one dyed item to begin with please.
Additional colors of Rit Tie-Dye if you have some or want colors not listed above
On Friday (8/11), 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 parents may be present at practice, we’re asking anyone who is not a Lincoln girls swimmer or coach to head home after the meet and plan to pick up your athlete (if needed) around 6:15PM.
