Bristol Penguin Club Kit 

If your child is new to swimming, it can be difficult to understand or know what kit is correct for them to have.  When it comes to fins/kickboard/pull buoys, you do not need to break the bank to get ones that do the job. A good thing to remember is to name the kit with a permanent pen, as most children end up with very similar kit.

Here is a quick breakdown of what is required:

Basic kit list for all squads:

  • Working goggles
  • Spare goggles
  • Club swim hat
  • Short fins
  • Kickboard
  • Pull buoy
  • Drinks bottle with water



These range in price from £16 upwards.  For a new swimmer, the £16 fins will do just as good a job as the £35 pair.



These range from £12 upwards. For a new swimmer, the £12 kickboard will do the job. You can usually find kickboards at the leisure centres to buy.



These range from £10 upwards. For a new swimmer, the £10 pullbuoy will do the job. You can usually find pullbuoys at the leisure centres to buy.
