Summer Swim Team Start System

A quality start system is essential to your swim team’s success.

One of the most important components of any swim meet is the start system. The start system is what alerts the swimmers to when it is time to begin the race, giving everyone an equal opportunity at winning the race. When your pool becomes the home to races of any kind, including practice races that get your swimmers used to the methods of a real race, it is important to have the right swim meet start systems to best fit your needs and help your swimmers identify when the race begins.

Colorado Timing Infinity Start System

The state-of-the-art Colorado Timing Infinity Start System is a great option for pools that cater to swimmers of all skill levels and abilities. The small case makes it a portable option you can take from pool to pool if you will be heading to a pool that isn’t your home pool and they do not have a start system of their own. This system features both an audible sound and a corresponding strobe light that flashes at the exact same time, allowing both hearing and hearing-impaired individuals to clearly identify the start of the race. You will also enjoy the false start feature that immediately alerts all swimmers when a false start occurred, bringing them back to restart the race. The unit features 40-watt corosion resistant speakers, a gel-cell battery, wired microphone, start button and 115V charging capabilities. A tripod is available.

IST Swimstart Electric Start System

The IST Swimstart Electric Start System is another great portable option for your pool. This start system features a PA system for announcements, a tone and strobe light alert to indicate starts and a recall tone to bring swimmers back after a false start. The small circuits used in this system allow it to be housed in a small box for greater portability. External connections allow you to connect and disconnect each of the components without exposing them to the water, increasing the risk of electrocution.

The start system is an important component to all your summer swim team races. If you need one for your pool, these two great options will provide you with the exact features you need to cater to all your swimmers without spending a lot of money on an installed system. Both systems are small and easy to transport, giving you greater flexibility in your start system.

Swim hats are the perfect piece of swim gear both at the pool and away from it.

When you are the coach of a swim team, you need to make sure you do whatever is necessary to boost the morale of your team and create a spirit of unity in your team. This will ensure that everyone works together as a functional unit and help them get along better, both in and out of the pool. One of the ways you can do this is through purchasing various swim team gear your team members can wear at the pool and in their daily lives to show their pride in their team.

Swim Team Hats

If it is cool outside, your swimmers will need a way to keep their heads warm when they aren’t in the pool. In addition, they may want to wear these hats in their daily lives as well. Available in a Speedo beanie or a Speedo straw hat, you will be able to choose just the right option for your team. If you choose the beanie, your team members can wear the hat by the poolside when it is cool or anywhere around town in the cooler months. With the Speedo logo, everyone will know your team members are swimmers.

Swim T-Shirts

Another great piece of swim team gear to boost the team morale and spirit is the swim t-shirts. You can choose t-shirts with cute swim-related sayings that will make people smile and show them you are part of a great team. Of course, you always have the option to have t-shirts imprinted with your team logo or anything else related to your team. Your team members can show everyone just how proud they are to be part of your team.

Swim Hoodies

Hoodies are a great option when the weather is cooler. Just like the swim t-shirts, the swim hoodies feature sayings that are related to swimming. You can also get them imprinted specifically for your team.  Your team will be able to show their pride in swimming and your team, even when the weather is too cold for swimming.

Providing your swim team with the swim team gear that shows everyone around them about how much they love swimming and their team is a great way to boost morale and team spirit. Your team needs to focus on working together. This swim team gear is the perfect way to help your team work together.





Essential Swim Team Gear for Training

Swim Team Gear

Providing your team with essential training gear is important.

When you are the coach of a swim team, you want your team to be the best it can be. This means providing your team with all the tools they need to increase their endurance and enhance their skills as they work toward greater things. When planning for what you need to train your team to be the best they can be, there are certain pieces of equipment you must invest in. This will ensure your swimmers will grow stronger and improve continually.

Swim Fins and Paddles

Swim fins and paddles can be an excellent tool to build strength and endurance in swimmers. Because of the wide flaps on the fins and paddles, there is more resistance against the water. This increased resistance causes a swimmer to have to kick or stroke harder for the same results. When you work harder, you will be building your muscles and increasing their endurance so you will have an easier time swimming through the water when you aren’t wearing them.

Pull Buoys

Another important training tool for your swim team gear is the pull buoy. These devices are kept between the swimmer’s legs to restrict their use. When you are using a pull buoy, it will force you to use your arms to propel you through the water as much as possible, helping you to strengthen the muscles in your arms. This increase in upper body strength is crucial to your swimming success.

Stretchcordz

Stretchcordz are yet another useful tool to keep in your swim team gear arsenal. These stretchcordz come with a belt that wraps around your waist. You then hand onto the handles at the ends of the elastic cords as you swim. The cords move freely around the belt, giving you free range of motion. However, the resistance the cords create will allow you to increase your arm and upper body strength to improve your swimming.

Providing all the swim team gear your team needs to train will ensure they have all the tools necessary to be successful swimmers. It is up to you to ensure your swimmers are trained in the best way possible. With the help of these important tools, your swimmers will see great improvement as they go through their training exercises. When they hit the pool, they can be confident in their strength, endurance and skills so they will do the best they can against their competitors.
