FATHER’S DAY

June 15, 2013 in Family Fun, For Coaches & Parents, Las Vegas Local, Lifeguard, Product Spotlights, Swimming, Triathlon

Sunday is Father’s Day and with it comes the opportunity to enjoy quality water time with dear old Dad.  If it’s a backyard pool party, there are a number of ways to enhance your aquatic experience this Father’s Day.  A backyard pool party for the family and friends will take on another dimension with the inclusion of toys and pool games for the festivities.  Grab a snorkel and mask set and set up a scavenger hunt using dive rings and pool toys.  For a combination of games, look to the Across Pool Volleyball/Badminton Set from Water Gear.  This set includes the standards, net, ball, rackets and birdies for guaranteed hours of pool fun.  If basketball is your game, add another dimension and play a championship series of your own with the Heavy Duty Water Basketball Game, also from Water Gear.  Team or one-on-one competitions will keep everyone involved, and it may give Dad a reason, or the perfect excuse, to officiate the action.

Perhaps Dad just wants to kick back and relax this Father’s Day.  Maybe he just wants to sit back and enjoy watching it all.  If that’s the case, let him lounge in style and watch all the competition with a quality flotation device.  Keep beverages at the ready and share some floating time with Dad on the River Run II from Wet Products.  This dual tube design features seating for two, two cup holders, two handles (for the rogue wave) and showcases a cooler in the middle that keeps beverages cold and ready.  Wet Products also offers the 18 Pocket Suntanner.  This raft is over 6 feet long, 2 feet wide and includes a pillow for Dad to rest his weary head on.  However, Dad may need to load up on the sunscreen in case the competition is so riveting he happens to doze off for a few minutes on this floating nap vessel.

Remember, whatever activities you have planned this Father’s Day, it’s always safety first.  Enjoy, and Happy Father’s Day!

Summer and Mirrored Goggles!!!

June 4, 2013 in Product Spotlights, Swimming, Triathlon

Both competitive and recreational swimmers are likely to spend more time
outdoors during the summer months.  They also have to contend with the
intensity of the summer sun, an intensity that can negatively impact a
swimmer's vision both in and around the water.  We all have only one set
of eyes, and it's important to take every precaution to protection them. 
Wearing a quality pair of goggles every time you're in the water is strongly
recommended, whatever the water activity may be.  Goggles provide a water
tight seal for hours on end, making it easier to see clearly and ensuring the
safety and protection of your eyes from the harmful elements and irritants
found in the water.  Goggles also include quality protection from the harmful
rays of the sun, incorporating UVA/UVB protection features that are second to
none.  And if you’re concerned about comfort, don’t be. 
Components found in goggles today not only provide a water tight seal, they also
provide a comfortable fit you can rely on time and time again. 

Increased glare is a factor all swimmers have to contend with in the pool and
the open water during the summer months, and it's a factor that can have a huge
impact on swimmers during a competition.  The best way to combat the
negative effects of increased glare from the summer sun during competition is
with a pair of mirrored swim goggles.  Mirrored lens goggles are
specifically designed to help reduce the glare associated with the reflection
of sunlight on the water, reducing eye strain and enhancing your vision in even
the most intense sunlight.  And for the fashionistas, mirrored goggles
provide a sleek look that will keep you as cool in your mind as you feel you
need to be each time you put them on.

A number of manufacturers offer mirrored goggles, in a variety of styles and
designs suited for any competitive or recreational discipline, as an integral
part of their product lines.  For speed in the pool, Speedo offers the
Liquid Storm Mirrored goggles.  Ideally suited for racing, these goggles
showcase a hard frame that provides a water tight seal, a low-profile fit that
reduces drag and mirrored, wide angle lenses that reduce glare, enhance vision
clarity and provide increased peripheral vision capability that enables you to
keep an eye on the competition. For open water and triathlon use, Tyr offers
the Nest Pro Metallized goggles.  Inspired by the bird nest design of the
Olympic Stadium in Beijing, Nest Pro Metallized goggles are quality performance
goggles with a high-tech design suitable for competition, training, triathlon
or open water use.  These goggles incorporate a VTS (Varied Tensile
Strength) headstrap that combines with the TPR gasket/frame system to enhance
comfort, provide a water tight seal and conform to your head for a secure fit. 
Nest Pro Metallized goggles are also comfortable, durable, and feature
mirrored, anti-fog lenses with wide angle vision capability and embedded
protection that reduces glare and enhances clarity whenever you're in the water.

Remember, it’s always safety first, especially where the eyes are
concerned.  And if you’re looking for some mirrored goggles to enhance
your summer season, contact Swim2000 and we’ll help you select a pair of
mirrored goggles that are right for you.

WATER SAFETY FOR KIDS

May 25, 2013 in Family Fun, For Coaches & Parents

The start of the summer brings with it backyard barbeques, family gatherings, kids home for the summer and rising temperatures.  When it’s hot out and the kids are nagging you to take them to the pool, the beach or any water locale, you need to be absolutely certain of their safety.  Swim2000 offers a wide variety of flotation aids that will keep your kids safe in the water, and keep you worry free at the same time.

Looking to spend quality pool time with your infant?  Wet Products offers My Baby Float™, a great way to spend time with an infant in the water.  My Baby Float™ is a variation of the standard inner tube design.  It features a small inner ring that combines with a large outer ring to provide excellent stability in the water, while the pillow backrest and seat straps provide a soft, comfortable harness for your infant to splash away in.  For the child who wants a bit more freedom, try the Speedo® Float Coach on for size.  A modified vest design, the Float Coach helps children learn to float on their backs and features adjustable shoulder, side and padded leg straps for a secure and comfortable fit.  These and many more quality products at Swim2000 will keep infants and toddlers safe, occupied and satisfied in the water this summer.  Remember, safety first…and enjoy the water!

Lifeguard Season! Thank you

May 25, 2013 in Las Vegas Local, Lifeguard, Swimming

This weekend is the unofficial beginning of summer and it also means the start of lifeguard season.  Make no mistake, anytime a lifeguard is on the job is lifeguard season.  However, Memorial Day and the beginning of summer signal a number of things including the end of the school year, a rising heat index, the local pool opening, families taking vacations and people flocking to the beach.  More people looking to cool off and relax by getting in the water leads to greater responsibility, and potentially longer hours, for lifeguards everywhere.  Translated, summer is lifeguard season.

Lifeguards ensure the safety of everyone in and around the water.  Sometimes the rest of us just can’t help ourselves, screwing things up so badly that a lifeguard is needed to make it right.  No matter the circumstance, lifeguards always answer the call.  Their job requires fitness, focus, awareness, recognition and clarity.  Lifeguards also need quality gear that will perform when it matters most.  Many lifeguards choose Swim2000 for all their apparel, gear and equipment needs.  Swim2000 appreciates their support but we would also like to recognize every lifeguard for what they do.  From the staff at Swim2000, and on behalf of everyone on your watch, we send our sincerest appreciation and gratitude to lifeguards everywhere.  For everything you do, thank you.  Be safe, enjoy the summer and have a great lifeguard season!
