Team USA Gear
It was an Olympic year and no doubt your swimmers were watching Team USA closely. Show your spirit and support for the team with some Team USA gear.
You’ve probably seen plenty of these fun, swim-centric, slogan Ts around, but this is one of my favorites.
Available in multiple colors.
One for the girls. Dory’s favorite saying is one that most swimmers repeat to themselves in practice.
And one for the swimmer who has everything. There are a few choices for swim watches that count laps these days, but you have to give it the Apple Watch Series 2, this is the only one that will also give you your text messages, and directions to the swim meet as well.
For Every Swim Bag
Every swimmer needs to hydrate, might as well have a water bottle with some personality.
The chamois towel is one of the most underrated swim items out there. Growing up, I considered this a crucial item at every swim meet. It sponges the excess water off your swimmer and thereby keeps their real towels largely warm and dry for wrapping up in after they (chamois) towel off.
Our Holiday Gift Guide for Swimmers wouldn’t be complete without some holiday reading.
If you have a swimmer that really wants to take it to the next level they’ll want to spend some time on their mental game. These books by Dr Keith Bell, renowned sports psychologist and husband of Olympic triple gold medalist, Sandy Neilson-Bell, are great for your teen or tween swimmer. Available in softcover or as e-books for easy download.
For your little ones just starting out on their swimming journey, get them off to a good start with a few pearls of wisdom from me, SwimTopia’s own Olympian 🙂 Geared for 4-7 yr olds, this book is perfect for kiddos about to start on a summer swim team. The book is designed to be read aloud and for parents and coaches to talk around the points raised, bringing real life examples their own swimmer/s might experience into the conversation.
What coach wouldn’t like reinforcement of this sentiment?
We hope you’ve enjoyed our Holiday Gift Guide for Swimmers.
Happy shopping, and happy Holidays!
