Practice Gear

Practice Suits - All swimmers need to have at least one, preferably two practice suits to be worn during practice. Please, no board shorts or beach swim trunks. These suits dramatically hamper learning and applying good technique. You may wear old suits or loose fitting nylon Speedo style suits.

 

Swim Caps - All swimmers with shoulder length hair are required to wear a swim cap at practice and meets. Long hair with no cap reduces the efficiency of an individual to concentrate on proper technique and drills.

 

Goggles – It is strongly suggested that all swimmers use swim goggles at swim practice. This may take some getting used to for some but will help in the swimmers performance and enjoyment of swimming competitively. The goggles need to be adjusted before practice and tightened appropriately.

 

Swim fins - Fins are highly recommended for training; these ones are fine. Be sure to sharpie your swimmer’s name on them.

 

Comfortable Shoes and Clothing ​- On Occasion we will do some group stretching and light dry land work. Please always come prepared

 

Extra Equipment - Kick boards, pull buoys, swim stretch bands used during the course of the season at practice will be supplied by LVST.
