  • Swimsuit
  • Quick drying shorts, tops for paddling and both warm and quick drying long sleeved tops and bottoms in case we have cool/cloudy/windy weather. Suitable materials include synthetics like polyester, polypropylene, fleece, CoolMax or nylon. (Not cotton or denim – it chafes and weighs a ton when wet!) The long sleeved shirt and pants are also needed for one of the rescue activities and will get wet.
  • Change of clothes
  • Rain gear – we will not stop class for rain, only lightning
  • Sunscreen and hat!
  • Towel
