Summer meets are just around the corner so here are some must-have items to pack in your bag before the big day:
Extra cap & goggles
These are bound to be misplaced. Maybe even pack a back-up suit since they can tear.
Hoodie & dry clothes
Storing these in the car will come in handy for those unexpected rainy summer nights.
Two or more towels
There is no doubt a towel will be drenched within the first ten minutes of the meet.
Gatorade and water bottle
Hydration is key they say!
Sharpies & highlighters
For jotting down events and marking the heat sheet, or to draw “Eat My Bubbles!”
Snacks! Snacks! Snacks!
Everyone knows swimmers are notoriously hungry.
A few extra dollars
For more snacks, of course.
No one wants a goggle tan line.
An infinite supply of hair ties
This avoids the disastrous moment of one breaking before a race.
A deck of cards or coloring books are great to kill time in between events.
Forget the pain of sitting on the ground and soaking another towel.
A POSITIVE attitude for a FUN night of racing!
