Capital Wave’s 2022-2023 Merchandise & Equipment Requirement

Updated: September 1, 2022

As part of Capital Wave’s programs, there are specific club merchandise & equipment requirements needed for the 2022-2023 season. Please take a look at your specific program and see what you need to order. Please note that any CW branded items are currently for pre-order so they may not be available until mid to late October. Training equipment is required for every practice. If you have any merchandise questions, please contact us here.

Please remember that we are a volunteer run organization – NOT AMAZON – and we always try our best to fill your order as quickly as we can. You may think your order is small but we are filling orders for 190+ athletes and coaches as fast as we can.
ALWAYS PUT YOUR ORDER # IN THE NOTES SECTION. No other information is required but the order # is essential!
Orders can be placed at any time but they will not necessarily be fulfilled immediately. We will be instituting pick ups on Saturday for any orders that came in by Tuesday. More on this soon.
Any orders for tournaments must be placed 10 days before the event. The tournament schedules will be made available to families by the Team Manager and you are responsible for knowing what you have and what you need to purchase. The website lists all items required for all groups which should be purchased before tournaments.

All CW items are available on our SHOP
