Swimming Cap-
We ask that all swimmers who are independent of their carer ( ie – not in a parents and bubs class) wear a cap. It helps keep the pool cleaner and prevents hair going into your eyes which is very distracting.
Goggles – While we do teach the learners to swim without goggles for safety training, they become necessary for comfort in the water. If your eyes are not in the water – you are not swimming properly!
Rash vests and board Shorts – Both are designed primarily for sun protection. The more clothing a swimmer wears, the more restricted are the stroke development and streamlining. Plain English – It is harder, and will take longer, to learn to swim in boardies and rashies.
Fins (flippers) - Long blade fins are required for development squad. We transition to short blade fins in the squad class and are used in advanced squad.
Pull Buoys - Required in advanced squad.
