When you have swimmers who swim the backstroke in your pool, it is essential to have appropriate backstroke flags installed to prevent serious accidents. Some swimmers who regularly swim at your pool can tell how close to the wall they are by counting their strokes, but that can become tedious and it doesn’t help those who are unfamiliar with your pool. In order to keep everyone safe, it is important to find the right backstroke swim flags to hang up at your pool to ensure safety for everyone.
100-Foot Backstroke Flags
If you are looking for an affordable option to mark your pool with, the 100-Foot Backstroke Flags are perfect. Made from vinyl, they are available in a variety of colors, enabling you to coordinate them with your team’s colors. You can also choose multi colored flags that include five colors, alternating throughout the entire string. They easily tie onto sturdy poles and are perfectly spaced according to the standards of AAU and NCAA.
For true customization of the backstroke flags at your pool, there are Custom Backstroke Flags available. They are sold individually, allowing you to purchase as few as one or as many as you need for your pool. These quality flags are durable and long lasting. The custom pennants come without the rope, making it necessary to purchase the rope to string them according to regulation, which is typically one flag for every foot of space. You can order the custom flags in any quantity and color sequence that represents your school or team or purchase multiple colors.
To make your flags stand out even further, you can customize the lettering placed on them to further their authenticity. You can choose to spell out your team name, use lane numbers or any other letters/numbers that work well in conjunction with your pool to enlist team spirit and to give a professional look to the area.
Rope and Swivel Hooks
If you purchase custom pennants, you need quality rope, as well as swivel hooks, to professionally hang them so they meet the regulation requirements. The swivel hooks are easy to install and instantly give your pool a professional appearance. They also offer the ability to put your backstroke swim flags up quickly, as well as take them down and store them until the next time you need them.
