This season we are asking swimmers to bring their own kickboards. These can be purchased for $15-$20 at Mo's Swimville in Olentangy Plaza (near Panera Bread), Amazon.com, or Swimoutlet.com.
There will not be usable drinking fountains this season at the pool. I highly suggest that swimmers bring two water bottles for practice, especially the older swimmers who will be participating in dryland and have longer practices.
Swimmers are to come to practice ready to practice. Locker rooms will not be available to use for changing. Swimmers will be allowed to use the restrooms as needed, but one at a time.
Normal Season expectations
NWSC provides kick boards and pull buoys for all team members. All that is needed is your swimsuit, swim cap, googles, and a water bottle.
At swim meets swimmers are required to wear the Northwest Tigersharks swim cap. You wouldn't wear anothers team hat or helmet if you played another sport, so wearing the team swim cap is just as important. It is highly recommended that you wear the team suit as well.
