Velocity Swimming Equipment
 

Below is a list of the equipment we would like our swimmers to have at every practice, which varies depending on the swimmer’s age. Pre-Team swimmers do not need to purchase any equipment. We will provide any equipment used with this group.

Please note that some equipment is required and some is optional. For most of the equipment, clicking the link will take you to the specific item pictured on Velocity’s Team Store on SwimOutlet.com. After creating an account, all you will need to do is add it to your cart. By setting up an account and shopping through our store, you will have access to discounts and we earn a commission on the sale.

Some equipment is not available on our team store, so clicking those links will take you to another vendor from which you can purchase the item. Also, some equipment isn’t linked to a vendor because those are items that can be purchased from just about anywhere (e.g., Target, Walmart, Dollar Store, etc.) or you may already have them lying around the house. Examples include the tennis ball and votive candle.

With the exception of Finis Agility Hand Paddles, if you already have the equipment listed below but it is not the brand listed, there is no need to purchase the specified brand. However, because of how they are designed we want you to have the Finis Agility Hand Paddles.

As for fins, the style we want you to have are called floating fins, but the brand does not matter. If you have short fins such as Zoomers, Powerfins, HydroBlades, Switchblades (or similar), you will need to purchase floating fins.

BEFORE PURCHASING ANY EQUIPMENT, PLEASE NOTE THAT WE WILL BE SCHEDULING AN EQUIPMENT EXCHANGE DAY DURING WHICH YOU WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXCHANGE/OBTAIN EQUIPMENT FROM FELLOW TEAM MEMBERS WHO HAVE OUTGROWN OR NO LONGER NEED THEIR EQUIPMENT. WHEN IT GETS SCHEDULED, WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE DATE & TIME.
