Why wear hats?

The pool operator requires everyone taking part in lessons to wear hats. We also agree with this as it keeps hair out of the face when swimming. Hats can be brought from us before your child's lesson.

Goggles are optional!

Which swimming costumes should you wear?

For Boys

Either trunks or tight fitting swimming shorts. Please do not wear baggy board shorts as this makes learning to swim much more difficult. They get very heavy when wet and pull the child downwards.

For Girls

Swimming costumes rather than bikinis as these can cause problems when jumping or diving into the water.

Why no wetsuits?

A wetsuit gives a child a false sense of buoyancy.
