7 back to school swimming essentials

With just a couple of weeks remaining until the summer holidays end, we've pulled together a list of swimming essentials so you can get the kids sorted before term starts.

Our Junior range of bold, vibrant swimwear designs is ideal for children aged 6-15 whether they're having lessons, working towards a badge or taking on a competitive challenge. Using soft and durable fabrics, our swimsuits, tankinis, jammers and trunks are made to last and designed with comfort, style and performance in mind. Swimsuits come with a front lining for modesty and swim shorts have adjustable waistbands for the perfect fit. We use high-quality, durable materials that are soft and quick-drying to prevent chaffing. Aqualast™ is a snag-free material which promises a lifetime of use with colour and shape retention whereas Hydrolife™ is chlorine-resistant and comes with a guarantee of 200 hours pool time. And new in this season is our sustainable Ecolast™ collection which is made from recycled ocean plastic. When tested in real-life conditions, it was found to be 15 times more resilient to chlorine than standard swimwear fabrics.

The Native Spirit Double Crossback Swimsuit is designed for children aged 6-15 years. With a high front and back, it has an aqua-dynamic fit and is made from our super soft, quick drying and chlorine resistant Hydrolife™ fabric.

The vibrant Street Girl Duoback Swimsuit is designed for swimming and fun with confidence built in! What's more it's made from our new Ecolast™ fabric, part of the Zoggs sustainable product program, using recycled materials to help protect the environment for future generations. We recently announced we're giving 10% of our Ecolast™ swimwear profits to Healthy Seas (read more here).

The Junior Saber Jett Jammer below is also made from our new Ecolast™ fabric and takes colour to 11 with its graffiti-inspired print. Designed to stand out even before the kids have got in the pool, these jammers have a v front lining and a drawstring waist so they can swim with confidence in comfort.

Or they can set the pace in some Junior Batman Jammers! The Batman motif is great for adding a splash of fun, while the drawstring waist and front lining allow for a comfortable and customised fit. The close fit is perfect for an aqua-dynamic design to make the most out of their time in the water - and they get to swim with a superhero!


We know how important it is for young swimmers to feel good in the water so our Junior goggles come in a range of exciting styles and colours to make swimming even more fun. What's more they have adjustable straps and nose bridges so kids won't grow out of them too quickly. There's lots of choice too from character goggles and bright colours to hologram demon lenses!


Not only do our goggles look great, our Curved Lens Technology™ provides 180-degree peripheral vision while our goggles with Fogbuster™ technology are ideal for outdoor swimming. Red panda eyes can be a thing of the past with our Air Cushion Technology found in the Sonic Air and Fusion Air Junior swimming goggles too.

Silicone caps are easy to stretch so ideal for children who want to keep long hair out of the water. The fabric caps are easier to put on but allow water to come through. We're loving our DC Super Heroes collection of silicone caps featuring Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman.


Our kickboards are a useful piece of training kit for children looking to improve their kick technique and grow in confidence. The kickboards helps to improve leg strength and increase speed, even after the training aid is removed. Our range of kickboards offer increased buoyancy, giving children the confidence to be more independent and work on developing their skills.



Our Nose Clip is made from a flexible plastic frame and has a one size fits all design with silicone pads for comfort and a hand carry case for hygiene.
