Swim Team Practice & Meet Equipment List

In order for swimmer to get the most of our program and their practices we have the following equipment list that will be needed in each practice and at all locations. Below is the equipment list with links to our team's online shopping cart to order each item. All orders will need to be placed through our team's online store in order to receive our team discount from D & J Sports. You order will not be finalized until a Sales Rep calls you for your credit card info. All order will be shipped directly to your home not to the YMCA.

Positive Drive Training Fins - The PDF was created to improve kick technique and power. Foot pocket is shaped like your foot for fit and comfort. Promotes natural supination cycle in your kick. Color coordinated by size. (Write name on them with black marker) (Click Here)

FINIS Sr & Jr Swimmer's Snorkel - The Finis Swimmer's Snorkel allows swimmers to concentrate on body balance, head position and stroke technique by eliminating the breathing cycle rotation. Regular snorkel training increases the capacity of the lungs to expel air, required for optimal intake of oxygen, and increases CO2 tolerance and VO2 max. The Finis Swimmer's Snorkel has a patented front-mount design that allows you to wear it with any swimming goggle. (Click Here)

Speedo IM Tech Paddles - The new Speedo I.M. Tech swim paddles are a perfect multi-stroke technique paddle designed to feel the catch phase of all four swimming strokes. Paddles may be interchanged between the right and left hands for specific stroke technique. The pronounced edge promotes a better feel for the catch phase of each stroke. Tubing straps provide a snug and comfortable fit. (Click Here)
