Long Blade Fins and a streamline kickboard. Coach Bailey will tell you when it is time to purchase additional equipment.
Long Blade Fins
These swim fins feature a long blade so swimmers can concentrate on proper kicking from a natural kicking cadence. Even our youngest swim team members benefit from having long blade fins.
Streamline kickboard or pull/kick board
This is not a typical kick board. These smaller streamline kickboards and pull/kick boards keep the swimmer lower in the water creating a more natural kicking position. A full kick board changes a swimmer’s position in the water creating a kicking position that is not natural.
Swimmers Snorkel (Gold Swimmers and up) The FINIS Swimmer’s Swim Snorkel is a coach favorite and highly recommended.
The snorkel is specifically designed to help swimmers concentrate on their head position and body alignment by removing the head movements required for breathing.
