Following is a list of equipment each swimmer should have in their swim bags:

  • Swim cap
  • Goggles
  • Short Fins (see more below)
  • Flat Paddles (see more below)
  • Snorkel (see more below)
  • Kickboard - any brand
  • Pull Buoy - any brand (note there are junior and adult sizes)
  • One Tennis Ball (for breaststroke drills)
  • One Hockey Puck (for backstroke balance drills)
  • 24” section of Pool Noodle
  • Mesh Equipment Bag (see more below)

LABEL ALL EQUIPMENT WITH YOUR NAME (use water resistent Sharpie and check every so often because it will still wear off and need labeled again).

Short fins - Coach Kuba recommends these FINIS "Zoomers", which you can purchase in our SwimOutlet Team Store or other online vendors. If you already have long fins, you can cut them down as pictured below.

Flat Paddles - "flat" hand paddles with rubber tubing are recommended, there are two brands in our SwimOutlet Team Store, but you can purchase any brand that is flat.  Pay attention to sizing measurements, typically medium size for everyone up to Orcas, and large for Makos & Nationals. 

Snorkel - we have found that the MP (Michael Phelps) and TYR brand snorkels seem to last the longest, but you can buy any brand.

   

 

Mesh Equipment Bag - due to COVID, we cannot share equipment or leave it at the pool, so swimmers need a sturdy bag to carry back and forth.  We would recommend one with backback style straps (rather than just a drawstring) these seem to last longer and tear less.
