What Do Swimmers Need?

To start with your swimmer will need:

  • A swimsuit (as they get more competitive the will most likely need suits for practice and additional suits for swim meets)
  • a pair of goggles (The swim store in the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre provides assistance in finding the right pair of goggles that will fit your swimmer's face-as they get more competitive it is always a good idea to have a back up pair of goggles)
  • a swim bag to carry all their stuff in

As your swimmer gets more involved in the sport...

Fins (flippers), a pull/kick board and paddles (hand paddles)
