There is a minimum set of training equipment swimmers are expected to bring to every session, and some of this will vary dependant on squad. The basic kit should include:

They get wet so they also get smelly and benefit from the occasional wash!




You may also be required to have other equipment (pullbuoy, finger paddles, freestyle snorkel etc), your coach will tell you about any additional requirements.


Competition swimmers may also want to consider costumes designed specifically for the purpose. Racing costumes, or skins, are designed to be very tight and are made of special fabrics to reduce drag. They are not to be used for training and should not be used in a warm-up. They are expensive and are not necessary for young swimmers.


All swimmers are expected to have a Club swimming hat and Club polo shirt. Optional kit are hoodies and tracksuits, see "Team Kit" page.
