It is a good idea for your child to start taking responsibility early on with regard to packing their kit bag for training and for Race day. The following gives a rough guide to what should be included. Your child May Not require all of these things, this will depend on what age and stage they are at. If in doubt, speak to your coach.
Training Bag Kit Bag
Costume plus spare Float
2 pair Goggles Flippers
2 Hats Pullbuoy
Water Bottle Paddles
Swimsuit x2 for w/up + swimdown x2 for Racing
Goggles (bring a spare just in case)
Hat (bring a spare just in case)
2 towels (one to keep dry, the other to sit on)
50 pence or £1 coin for the locker
Book, magazine or comic (to read during the day)
Healthy snack or packed lunch Many competitions can last a full day thus you will almost certainly need a packed lunch and plenty of drinks. It is good practice to have appropriate snacks/drinks that you like in your bag.
