Swim hats for Juniors

Every child in our swim school will be issued a swim hat that corresponds with the respective swim lesson stage they are on.

This will help our lifeguard team when supervising the pool and help us to offer a safer swimming experience for our young swimmers.

Some other benefits of wearing a swim hat include …

◊ Helps to establish good hygiene swim habits from an early age
◊ They prevent goggles from pulling on children’s hair and help with the position of the goggle straps. Many goggles now are designed to work perfectly with hats, making goggles more comfortable to wear
◊ They reduce drag in the water making you more streamline. This is why competitive swimmers wear them, but this can also help with your day-to-day swimming

On the first week of the term, your child’s swim teacher will give them their assigned colour swim hat which all children must wear for every swim lesson. This has been made a mandatory requirement to attend swim lessons and we welcome parents support in making this happen. The swim hat will be provided by the Club and every time a child moves up a stage, they will get a new swim hat with their certificate.

If you have any questions contact Swim Administrator Salma Sajil via email salma.sajil@roehamptonclub.co.uk

Changing room etiquette

Please refrain from bringing glass bottles into the Health Club which includes the changing rooms and on poolside. We had a situation recently where a glass bottle fell over and smashed on the changing room floor. Despite no injuries occurring we would like to reduce the risk of an injury in the future.

Therabody

You may know that sleep is absolutely crucial for everything that we do. It helps us feel energized, alert, emotionally stable, and ready to take on the day physically. It also plays an exceptional role in our recovery processes — helping cells and muscles grow and repair after exercise. To help support this have you tried using our Theragun’s which is a powerful tool for exercise recovery?.  Not only can a good night’s rest improve how we feel the next day, but consistently getting restful sleep can also improve many long-term health outcomes. If you would like further advice then please speak to a member of the fitness team.
