Equipment Basics

Swimsuits: The team suit is not mandatory, but helps the swimmers to recognize themselves as a part of the team.

Goggles: Choose goggles that best fit your face and provides the most comfortable seal. Each swimmer should have two pairs of goggles.

Swim Caps: Caps are required at meets for female swimmers, but optional for male swimmers. Putting a drop of conditioner onto your wet hair before you don your cap will help keep your hair from absorbing chlorinated water (it also makes it much easier to put on!). In addition, dust the inside of your swim cap with baby powder between uses to prevent “sticking”.
