The Evolution of Team Swim Caps from Simple to Inspirational

4 07 2014
Team swim caps can use your team's logo.

Custom swim caps have become complex and more unique.

One of the most important pieces of equipment any swimmer should have is team swim caps. The goal of every swimmer is to become as hydrodynamic as possible to reduce resistance in the water and increase their speed. When choosing custom swimming caps, you are able to choose from a variety of options. However, the option to design your own swim cap wasn’t always available.

The Most Basic Team Swim Caps

Swim caps have been used for many years to smooth out the hair of swimmers, both males and females. When you ordered these caps in the past, you were often limited in the style, as well as the colors, that were available. Every swimmer on the same team would wear the same colored cap, often without any other marking on it. This is because the focus was on the functionality of the caps, rather than what they looked like. Over time, however, swimming has become more fashionable, transforming the caps from traditional to custom swimming caps.

A Much Greater Selection

Today, there are many more options for your team swim caps. Not only can you choose from a large number of designs and colors, you will find a variety of options for materials so you can choose the type that best meets your needs. For instance, silicone caps are made from a smoother, thicker material that lasts longer than the traditional latex swim caps. You can even choose Lycra caps, made from the same durable material as many swim team suits.

Choose Custom Options

In addition to choosing from a selection of colors and materials, you now have the option to design your own swim cap. These caps allow you to choose a logo or other image to include on the side of the cap with high quality screen printing. This ability makes team swim caps even more fun and sets your team apart from the others.

Over the years, team swim caps have gone from a simple design to complex, inspirational options you can customize to fit your needs. With so many options, you can make your team stand apart from all the others.

These shoes can be worn during a family day at the beach or while you are spending time at the local pool or the pool in your backyard. The Speedo water shoes are a great option, such as the Speedwalker. These shoes dry quickly and don’t become waterlogged, making it difficult to walk when you exit the water. This means you can protect your feet while you swim without worrying about how you will feel after you get out of the water.

Water Aerobics

Another common use for Speedo water shoes is for water aerobics. Speedo, as well as several other brands, offer a vast selection of shoes that look similar to the regular tennis shoes you would wear to work out outside the water. These shoes are available in a variety of colors and styles so you can choose the one that is most comfortable for you. Because these are designed with a bit more substance to the design, they offer more support in the water. Like their general counterparts, they dry quickly and don’t feel heavy when you get out of the water.

Select the Style

When you choose custom printed swim team t-shirts, you will have a number of style options from which to choose, as well as the colors. You may wish to give your team short-sleeved shirts they can wear all summer long or perhaps they would rather have long-sleeved tees to keep them a little warmer in between heats. You can also find hoodies and dry-performance t-shirts to give your swimmers exactly what they want.

Design the Shirt

The final step in the process is to design your swim team tees. When you work with a company that offers these services specifically for swim teams, you will be able to create a design that best reflects your team.

Swimming Lane Ropes

Swimming lane ropes help keep swimmers in their lanes.

When you are swimming competitively, lane lines help you stay away from other swimmers and can provide you with a clear lane without dealing with the draft from other swimmers. Swim lane lines for summer teams are the same as they are for any other competitive swimming, regardless of the time of year. However, summer can be a great time to replace your swimming lane ropes.

Choose the Right Lengths

Every pool is a different size. Some summer teams swim in shorter pools, while others use longer regulation pools. Regardless of which size your pool may be, you can find swim lane markers in a variety of lengths to accommodate. The Antiwave Forerunner comes in 25 and 50 meter lengths, as does the Competitor. However, the Competitor is also available in a 75 meter length, which is ideal for non-traditional longer pools.

Select Your Marker Colors

If you take a close look at a swimming lane rope, you will see it features alternating colors that help swimmers identify where they are in the pool as they swim. However, the exact colors don’t matter. When you purchase the Antiwave Forerunner or Competitor swim lane ropes, you can select to the colors of the markers to match your swim team colors. This allows you to customize your pool so everyone remembers where they are.

Replacement Parts

You don’t always have to completely replace your swimming lane ropes at your summer team pool. Depending on the damage that has occurred, you may be able to use replacement parts. While it can be difficult to replace a few of the parts in your lane ropes, it becomes easier when you do it more often. These replacement parts will ensure you can continue to use your lane lines without spending more money on replacing the lines completely.

Swim lane ropes are one of the most essential aspects of your pool when you use it for competitions. Whether you are in the market for new Antiwave Forerunner or Competitor lane lines, you will find a variety of lengths and marker colors from which you can choose. In addition to purchasing new swimming lane ropes, you may also keep some replacement parts on hand, allowing you to make minor fixes without replacing your ropes completely.

Water Aerobics Is Gaining in Popularity

17 01 2014
Water Aerobics Gear

The right water aerobics gear can help you succeed in your efforts.

Water aerobics has become a more popular method of working out. Some individuals choose this method of working out for fitness purposes. Others do it in an attempt to lose weight. Because water aerobics puts less stress on the joints and the body, it is a preferred option for the elderly and others who are weak for a variety of reasons. If you are interested in joining the bandwagon to participate in this method of exercise, you will need certain swim gear.

The Right Swimwear

One of the first things you need to purchase is a good swimsuit to wear when participating in your workout. The typical suits you wear for recreational swimming and can buy from your local department store do not offer the same quality as other swimsuits. Instead, you should choose water aerobics swimwear that is designed for optimal support and freedom of movement. You can find swimsuits with a variety of coverage levels for your comfort.

 Other Wearables

Before you begin your water aerobics sessions, you need to make sure you have other wearables that are necessary to your success. While not a necessity, a swim cap can be a great addition to your water aerobics wear, especially if you want to protect your hair from the harsh chlorine in the pool. A good pair of water aerobics shoes is also essential to give you maximum traction on the pool floor.

Effective Water Aerobics Tools

There are also certain tools you need to use when you are participating in water aerobics, whether you are taking a formal class or working on your own. For instance, aqua fitness barbells and aqua fitness gloves can be a great way to add some additional toning to your workout, as well as resistance as you move your arms through the water. An aquajogger, such as the Swim Stuff Aqua Jogbelt, can be a great option to add a little extra weight to your body in the water.

If you are ready to start taking advantage of water aerobics and all it has to offer for fitness and weight loss purposes, you will need to make sure you purchase the right gear. This includes buying a quality swimsuit that will offer you the support and comfort you need in your workouts. You will also need to purchase other wearables and certain water aerobics tools for the most effective workout.
