When learning to swim there are certain items of kit that are essential requirements and having the correct gear will aid your child’s comfort while they are learning.
Every child will need goggles. Experience has shown that for children it is paramount to have goggles that fit correctly and perform the job they are designed to do. We recommend the Speedo Junior range as they have snug fitting eye sockets and are extremely durable.
Every child must have suitable swimwear. For girls, a tight well fitting swimming costume is important so they are comfortable and not distracted by an ill-fitting costume or slipping straps. For boys trunks must be tight fitting and secure at the waist. No baggy shorts or leisure shorts are allowed as these can restrict leg movement and hinder buoyancy. We recommend the Speedo Endurance range of swimwear because of the special chlorine resistant fabric which does not degrade or lose shape with extended use.
