How would you rate your swim bag packing skills from 1 to 10? If you didn’t answer 10/10, then this blog is for you!

Check out the video for our step-by-step guide on how to do it.

Here’s a few tips, learned from packing many a swim bag.

*First in, last out. Pack your bag in the order of what you’ll need first. One of the last things you’ll need after your lesson is a change of clothes, so these should go at the bottom. Items you’ll need as soon as you get there – like your bathing suit or a game for a younger sibling – should go into the bag last.

*If you’re bringing little ones to evening lessons, bring PJ’s or a cozy bathrobe to change into after your class. Once they get out of the pool, shower and get dressed they’ll be well on their way to being ready for bed.

*Bring hair conditioner – put it in your swim cap! Some people find it much easier to put a swim cap on and take it off if you apply a small amount of conditioner to your hair first. This way, you’ll also have silky smooth locks once you shower after your swim.

*Buy a swim bag with a waterproof compartment. The one used in our video has one and it makes packing it up before and after a lesson so much easier.

*Bring a plastic bag for wet clothes and towels. If you don’t have a specialized swim bag, always remember to pack a bag to put your soggy swim suit in at the end of your lesson.
