SWIMMING / TRAINING AID KIT REQUIREMENT
At the request of the Head Coach and her team it has been suggested that all Improvers, Junior and Senior Swimmers attend all Swim Sessions with the following equipment to ensure that they utilise, to the maximum, their actual pool time ‘in the water and swimming’ rather than hunting around to find the correct fitting equipment provided by the club / Teme Leisure.
On top of the basics of Swimsuit – trunks or ‘Jammers’ for boys, plain costumes for girls, correctly fitting Goggles, Hat (LSC hats are available poolside) and Water Bottle – as a bare minimum we would request the following equipment
All of the above, and more are available at many websites such as Simplyswim if you go to our easyfundraising page HERE and login yourself in then look for Simplyswim the club can get back upto 2.5% of your purchase. if you’d like to know more about easyfundraiser see link below.
It is hoped that once established, the club could run an ‘exchange’ system, especially for training fins as swimmers grow and need larger ones.
For further advice, please contact Sandra or a member of her coaching team.
