EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS & RECOMMENDATIONS
Masters swimming & Long Swims

Except for your personal swim gear (appropriate swim suit and well-fitting goggles and swim cap), no other equipment is mandatory – you will still be able to complete a workout without extra equipment but will likely get more benefit if you use the recommended equipment; thus, you may want to consider purchasing some of the following.

  • kick boards and pullbouys (basics that all coaches and a lot of workouts will use – but many of the pools we swim at will provide them for you to use – if you buy your own, PUT YOUR NAME ON THEM)
  • Fins – will help you swim further, faster, build leg & ankle strength and help you to keep better body position in the water. These are an amazing tool for all level of swimmers (especially if you have concerns about “keeping up” with the pace or endurance.)
  • Paddles – will add resistance to your stroke and help you to become more powerful and efficient in the water
  • Ankle Bands – only some coaches, and some athletes will use these, so ask your coach before buying

NOTE:  if you are unsure of what to buy, it is okay if you do not have any equipment to start with, you can ask your coach on deck what is appropriate for you and when you should plan to have it available (ie you may not use some equipment until later in the season.)

Recommended reading to familiarize yourself with the above equipment:
