Hand Paddles -Swimmers may swim with strapless paddles if preferred.  No finger or forearm paddles.

Bundles - Equipment bag + kickboard + paddle + hand paddles

PREFERRED GOGGLES!  *  Speedo Vanquishers.  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.

Please make sure your swimmer has their required equipment by the 1st practice.
