Goggles are helpful for students learning to swim once they are comfortable putting their face in the water and submerging under water. We want students to be comfortable with the water on their face before using goggles. Students should be able to put the goggles on/off on their own (with minimal help from instructor). Goggles are not a substitute for water comfort. Goggles are recommended for Manta Ray 3 level and above. Goggles are mandatory for Swim Team. We do sell goggles at the swim office.
