This Week's Top Tip!
We cannot express enough the importance of effectively labelling all of your swimmers equipment, but some things are difficult to label.
White nail varnish is a great tool for a dark coloured kickboard or for fins. It stays on, and is highly visible which helps prevent the kids picking up someone else's.
Goggles are also a tricky one to label, but luckily we have some resourceful parents on our team who told us about this ingenious tip! Mini pet tags!!!!
You can find some here.
