Required Equipment

The Swim Club - EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS

Please make sure your swimmer has their required equipment by the 1st practice.  Links to view and purchase equipment are found at the bottom of the page.

All Swimmers – Suit, Caps (we will provide a cap for all swimmers) and Goggles, plus:

Mini and Junior Club:

  • Fins  - no scuba fins 

TSC Age Group 1 & 2 –

  • Fins - no scuba fins 
  • Pull Buoy

TSC High School Prep

  • Fins 
  • Pull Buoy 
  • Hand Paddles

Note: FINS, FINS, FINS….it is extremely important that all swimmers have their own fins! Swimmers without fins tend to fall behind in practice when being used by the rest of the group.  Below is an example of the basic fins we ask swimmer to get.  Please do not buy scuba fins.  The hard plastic does not produce the results needed in a swim practice and can be counter productive to swimmers in practice.  Please check out the example below if you are unsure what to buy!

Equipment may be purchased at Swim Outlet, or any swim shop you prefer.  Examples:

FINS  

 

 

Pull Buoy

Hand Paddles

PREFERRED GOGGLES!  *  Speedo Vanquishers or Speedo Vanquisher Junior for smaller sizes.  These goggles are preferred over the goggle easy adjustable (one button push and pull along a zipper type strap) and inexpensive goggles.  While the other goggle may cost less and seem easier, they tend to leak more often.  Swimmers spend more time with these type of goggles adjusting back and forth as they do not appear to stay fitted to the swimmers.  The advantage to buying the preferred vanquisher brand is that once you adjust them, they should not ever need adjusting again!!!

Bungee Straps - your swimmer may purchase bungee straps as another alternative for the goggle straps.

NO SCUBA FINS - these do not have the flexibility needed
