Rash tops are great for the beach... just not at swimming lessons!

October 30, 2018

  

When it comes to swimwear, less is more when learning to swim.

 

Baggy surfer style board shorts and loose fitting rash guard shirts are not functional when it comes to swimming lessons.

 

Instead, outfit your child in a snug fitting Speedo style swimsuit for lesson time.

 

Anything that is worn in the pool beyond a basic swimsuit gets filled with water, which adds drag and weight, making learning-to-swim a much more difficult task. 

 

Learning to float and balance in the water is hard work! The more material your child is wearing, the more waterlogged and weighted down they are.

 

Recommended swimming lesson attire:

  • Snug-fitting one-piece racer back style swimsuit for girls and snug-fitting shorts-style suit for boys.

  • A basic pair of clear swim goggle are ideal, avoid mask-style goggles and the popular designer goggles that tend to not function as well.

  • For anyone with hair long must wear a swim cap (silicone or latex).

Thankfully UV protection from a swim shirt isn’t an issue in our indoor pool facility!
