When you or your child join Splash Swim School, we will ask you to purchase some basic swim training equipment. We understand this may come as a surprise. However, having your own items helps to minimise the risk of infection (COVID-19 and other) between swimmers. We want everyone to feel safe, secure and happy at swimming class.
It also means that if you go swimming between lessons, you or your child can continue to practise and improve using familiar equipment.
Woggles are used in our junior classes starting from the age of 2 years and up. Woggles assist with your child developing balance and an ability to float in the water. We require your child to have their own woggle, they can be purchased from Splash Swim School.
Aquaplanes are used in our post beginner classes starting from the age of 4/5 years and up. They can be secured on the learners back to provide balance and buoyancy in order to give confidence to a learner without an adult in the water. They are then used in our improver and advanced levels as a kickboard. We require your child to have their own aquaplane they can be purchased from Splash Swim School.
Kickboards are used in our Advanced learner and adult classes. They allow the learner to develop leg action to strengthen. It enables the learner to focus on leg drills. We require every child/ adult learner to have a kickoard. They can be purchased from Splash Swim School.
