  • Swim Cap

This item can range between $9-15. It is important for any swimmer to own because it reduces drag in the water and protects hair from harsh chemicals in the water. This item can be found at most sports stores. Swim caps come in different colors, and sizes. Some are designed specifically for short and long hair. They are made up of different materials from Lycra to latex. They can sometimes be a hassle to put on, and the latex ones have a history of pulling out hair. It is best to choose a Lycra or silicone one to prevent hair breakage.

The price for this item ranges from $8- 40. Swim goggles protect your eyes from chemicals in the water and just about anything else that could harm your eyes. They are pretty easy to use once one gets over the suction feeling on your face to keep water out of eyes. There are all types of colors and shapes and there are many new models out now that put a big emphasis on comfort since the cheap ones can be quite uncomfortable.

  • Swim Suit

Prices can range from $8- 200. It is the uniform of a swimmer, and therefore very important. The proper swimsuit could impact speed and still be stylish.

  • Underwater Watch

The price ranges from $9-100. This is a great item to own since it means you don’t have to take off your watch while swimming and won’t have to worry about it becoming damaged.
