PL and TYR
Plymouth Leander have a long-standing and much celebrated relationship with TYR. Named after the mythical Norse god of warriors and deity among all athletes, the TYR brand embodies the competitive spirit of sports and is a symbol of courage and victory. As one of the world's leading manufacturers of performance swimwear, TYR have a keen eye for both swimming talent and athletic prospects.
The company are more widely associated with US and European swim programmes and therefore PL are fortunate to co-exist with TYR in a mutually beneficial relationship that goes from strength to strength each year
Carlo Bonza (TYR Europe) and Len Burdell (TYR UK) are in close contact with PL on a regular basis and consistently place a large degree of finance and other resources into our programme. It is in PL's interest to maintain this relationship and nurture it to new levels whenever and wherever possible. Therefore, it is crucial that PL athletes, staff and supporters alike all associate themselves with the TYR brand as much as possible. With this in mind, PL wish to ensure the following:
It should be noted that PL athletes who have finished competing or who are not competing in a particular session at a meet but wish to stay on deck with the PL team must also comply with the following uniform policies.
