The following are essential items of kit:


Swimming costume

Swimming hat


Drinks bottle


Short blade training fins (short flippers)

Kick board

Pull buoy.

There are additional items which may be required for more advanced training as advised by the squad coach, for example:

Hand/finger paddles

Training snorkels

Drag shorts.

A mesh bag to keep the equipment in, is also a good investment as it allows it to dry after each session and stops it going mouldy.


Please note the Club kit, i.e., costumes, hats, tee-shirts and track suit tops must be worn at all events in which the club takes part.
