What You Need

One of the great things about swimming is that you do not need a lot of equipment to enjoy the sport.

Non-Competitive:  We suggest a training suit made of chlorine-resistant polyester - such as the Speedo Endurance.  They are slightly more expensive, but last much longer.  Many swimmers also benefit from a well-fitting pair of goggles.

Competitive: Competitive swimmers use a variety of equipment during their training sessions.  Basic equipment (kick board, pull buoy and limited fins) is available at the Crystal Pool.  As swimmers advance, they may need or want to have some of their own equipment.  The type of equipment used includes snorkels, fins, flutter boards, paddles and pull buoys and a mesh bag to keep it all together.  Coaches will let swimmers know what equipment, if any, they need to purchase.
