EQUIPMENT NEEDED FOR DEVELOPMENT SQUAD
The following equipment is required for the Development Squad sessions: - hat, goggles (properly adjusted), drink – preferably water or well diluted squash (at least ½ litre per half hour), fins, kickboard. Also, swimmers should have easy access (i.e. not buried at the bottom of a bag locked in a locker in the changing room!) to spare goggles (properly adjusted) and hat – since these items do break.
