One great thing about swimming is that there is not much equipment required for training or competing. Really all a swimmer needs are a suit and goggles. Your swimmer will receive a team shirt, covered by the registration fees. This year our generous sponsors will also provide each swimmer with a cap and a drawstring swim bag. Thank you Grider Orthodontics, Ellerman Real Estate and Lead Bank!

Swim Suits: Some swimmers like to have a practice suit and a competition suit. It is not required; one suit should be fine for most swimmers. Extend the life of your suit by buying the correct size and by rinsing the chlorine out of the suit after swimming.

Goggles: The fit of goggles is actually much more important than you might think. They aren’t much help to the swimmer if they leak or pop off after a dive or turn. A decent pair of goggles will cost about $20. If you are unsure how to choose your goggles, ask the sales reps at Swim Things to help you or take a look at these sites: best goggles for young kids or best goggles for older kids/adults

A team swimsuit is not required but is encouraged. Suits are two year suits, meaning that the swim team replaces the suit with a new design every two years. This year will be our second year with this suit, so we will have a new one in 2018. If you are new to swimming you may be shocked by the price of these suits. This is why we do not require it. However, we encourage team suits because it helps cultivate the team identity. The younger swimmers particularly enjoy their race suits. Team suits and goggles can be purchased at Swim Things. Be sure to mention the Winterset Sharks to receive the team discount.
