(Pasta is recommended, also rice cakes, nuts, cereal bars, and bananas. No crisps, chocolate or sweets which are far
too high in sugar and not helpful to the body, you need high carb and protein foods. For more info on Nutrition follow the link
on the left side of this page)

 A mobile phone to contact parents with during the day in emergencies.

 Money in case you run out of food or drink.

 Swimmers will need to get changed after races and warm ups into dry costumes so that they are not sat around in wet gear.

 All the clothing on this checklist is to be worn at all times to keep the body as warm as possible, warm muscles are
able to help us swim much faster than cold ones.
