Swimming equipment guide
Around the Academy:
The BBC Sport Academy provides you with a guide to all the common equipment available to swimmers.

Swimming is a relatively cheap sport because, at first, all you need is a pair of swimming trunks.

This is why it is very popular with young people. However, once you start club swimming, you will come across different pieces of training equipment such as floats, kick boards, hydro-boards and swim benches.

If you go to watch competitions, you will also start to see people wearing all sorts of swim suits to try and improve their performance.

Click on any of the ten pieces of equipment to find out more.
