Finis positive drive fins (approx. £28)
These fins are different as they can also be used for breaststroke as they have a unique ellipsoidal blade to generate the correct propulsion in all swim strokes, unfortunatly not currently available at Sporty Swim so see link.
Finis ankle strap (approx. £6)
I have recommended the Finis strap, but any similar strap is fine, not currently available at Sporty Swim.
Kick board Finis Alignment (approx. £16.50)
I like this kickboard as provides various options for drills.
Snorkel (Approx. £18)
I have shown a Finis snorkel however any central snorkel will be fine.
Pull buoy – Finis Axis Buoy (approx. £18)
I have recommended this pull buoy as it provide more versatility for different drills
Paddles Finis agility (approx. £18:50)
The Finis paddles are much easier to put on and take off plus the swimmers technique needs to be correct otherwise they fall off.
Toe separators (Approx. £6)
Whilst this may seem a strange swim aid they are excellent when used on fingers to create a 10 degree gap and great hand catch position when swimming.
Finis Tempo Trainer (approx. £50)
This is not essential but for the older swimmers this could prove useful in setting the correct stroke rate for individual events.
These will be used on the dryland training session, there are many similar bands available
· Exercise Mat - Due to COVID restrictions it is better if all swimmers have their own mats
· Skipping rope
· Large Drinks Bottle
· Drag shorts
