Gear for Your Swimmer

GEAR FOR YOUR SWIMMER

We encourage all swimmers to have the following gear to help them be successful in the water:

  • Sturdy, Leak-Proof Goggles (most important component of a swimmer's wardrobe- a leaking, ill-fitting goggle can cause so much frustration!)
  • Swim Cap- a team rule for ALL (except swimmers with short hair)
  • Snug-Fitting practice suit (no traditional board shorts for boys, as they create a heavy drag in the water)
  • Snug-Fitting team suit (REQUIRED if participating in swim meets)- ROYAL BLUE, same shade as on our home page profile picture and Swim Outlet site
  • Fins & Snorkel for swimmers 11 & up (swimmer's preference for length)
  • Mesh Equipment bag (to keep all gear organized and minimize equipment loss)
  • Towel
  • Water bottle 
  • Swim Parka (not a requirement, but highly suggested to help with those chilly months and mornings at meets!)

COMPETITIVE SWIMWEAR SIZING GUIDE

Selecting the correct swimsuit size can be challenging, especially for athletes new to competitive swimming. Sizing swimwear using only waist and chest measurements will get you headed in the right direction, but this is only the beginning.
