Swimmers will need a few items of training kit. They are able to use floats, fins etc. belonging to the pool but swimmers in B squad and upwards should have their own kit and it is recommended that Foundation and Development squad swimmers also have their own kit and kit bag.
A basic kit bag consists of a float, pull buoy, fins, finger / hand paddles (dependent on squad) together with a mesh bag in which to keep it all. Please NAME all your kit (with a permanent marker!) as it will be removed from the wet bag and placed poolside with all the other swimmers’ kit during training – things do get muddled and can easily end up with the pool’s equipment if not named.
Swimmers should also bring the following items to each training session: goggles, plus a spare pair in the kit bag, bottle for water, drag shorts for B squad and above.
Club swimming hats are available and should be worn by anyone representing the club in competition. Club hoodies and T-shirts are also available. Anyone representing the club at a gala should have either a club hoodie or T-shirt and suitable footwear for poolside.
All club kit i.e hoodies, T-shirts, hats and water bottles can be ordered via Nikki English, Club Secretary on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please return the order form with payment (cash or cheque made payable to Tynedale ASC) to Nikki. Please note that we do not hold stocks of kit, other than hats, and so your order may take a number of weeks to arrive. We place clothing orders at regular intervals depending on demand.
