What equipment will you need when setting up your own swim school? Read this section for helpful information


In your discussions with your chosen pool operator, you will need to determine at an early date if you will have access to any pool equipment – lane ropes, floats, armbands, toys, etc. that you will need to teach the groups you have decided to get involved with. If not, are you required to provide your own equipment? If so, are there any storage facilities available.

Remember to budget for these items as they can be expensive if you are starting from scratch………..

Remember also, that your membership of the ASA’s Swim School scheme entitles you to discounts from key suppliers.
