Swim cap for kids

Most children greatly benefit from a swimming cap when they're in the water. Some of the reasons are for fun, others for efficiency, and the last for health reasons. Regardless, we have a swimming cap for all children, whatever their needs might be. It doesn't have to be uncomfortable to swim with a swimming cap; not even for children.

A swimming cap for children makes it easier to swim

Children might feel a bit embarrassed or think it's unnecessary to wear a swimming cap, but it has a range of benefits. Especially for children with long hair, it can be more comfortable to swim with a swimming cap. It keeps the long hair in place, so it doesn't float into the face or otherwise irritate them while swimming.

And if you have a budding elite swimmer constantly chasing a new personal best, a swimming cap for children can shave those last few seconds off the time. This is because they fit snugly to the head, and their smooth surface reduces friction in the water. Therefore, a swimming cap for children and a good pair of swimming goggles for children is an absolute must if they're after breaking records.

Protect your child with a good swimming cap

If you have a true little water enthusiast who just can't get enough of water sports - whether it's swimming, water polo, or other aquatic sports - it's a good idea for them to get used to wearing a swimming cap. This is particularly true as some children are at greater risk of developing ear infections, especially when they engage in water sports where their heads are underwater a lot.

If your child has grommets in their ears, it might be a very good idea to combine the use of a swimming cap with a pair of earplugs. This provides extra protection when the child's head is underwater. Normally, this isn't a problem if they're on the surface because the water can't run into the ear due to surface tension.

However, this changes if they go below 1 meter in depth, where the water pressure can force water through the grommet and into the middle ear. For that reason, it's a really good idea to take precautions before an infection can worsen.

As many know, chlorine water can be harsh on the hair, especially if one spends a lot of time in it. This can become a problem for children who engage heavily in water sports, as it can dry out the hair, make it stiff, and even cause it to fade.

To prevent this, we recommend that children wear a swimming cap as often as possible when they're in the water. It can't keep the hair completely dry, but it still significantly reduces the risk of hair damage.

Swimming with a swimming cap can be fun

A swimming cap for children serves many practical functions, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring. You might as well liven up the swim practice with swimming caps in different colours, caps with patterns, or a printed swimming cap. For example, it could be one with a shark motif or shaped like a fish with fins and a tail.

Or why not find a swimming cap in a colour that matches the rest of the swimwear? It creates a much more stylish look and can instill fear in any competitor at races. If they've got the swimwear style down, they're bound to have the swimming technique down too. We're certain that we have swimming caps to suit all children's needs and wishes.

A swimming cap for children in the right colour isn't just for fun. If your child swims in the open sea, they must wear a swimming cap that makes them visible on the sea surface. Preferably in bright colours like red, yellow, or neon, so paddle boarders, kayakers, or others can see them in the water. This helps to avoid some nasty accidents!

Avoid getting cold in the water

For children, it quickly turns into play and splashing as soon as they get into the water, and rightly so. However, they don't always notice when they start to get cold. Especially not when they're engrossed in a fun water game.

If a child gets too cold, it can unfortunately lead to illness, which is never pleasant! This can be alleviated with a swimming cap for children, as most of the heat the body emits is through the scalp.

With a good, snug-fitting swimming cap, you can keep much of the heat in, thereby extending the time children can be in the water. This is particularly a good idea if your child tends to be sensitive to the cold.

Why a swimming cap for children is a good idea

There are far more advantages to children using a swimming cap than disadvantages. Even if they might initially seem uncomfortable to wear - being tight or pinching the skin and hair - children can get used to them.

Therefore, it's also good to explain to them why it's a good idea to swim with a swimming cap. And to make it easy, we've listed the most significant benefits to make it more manageable:

  • A good swimming cap makes your child faster in the water, so they can chase personal bests.
  • It prevents hair damage, which can be a particular problem for children who spend a lot of time in chlorinated water.
  • It makes it easier to protect your child from getting water and bacteria in their ears, which is a special challenge for those prone to ear infections.
  • It allows for an extension of the time children can spend in the water without getting cold, as a swimming cap can help retain warmth.
  • A swimming cap in the right colour can increase the visibility of your child in open water. Very important to avoid accidents.

Take good care of your swimming cap

It's important not to have sharp nails when putting on a swimming cap. You can easily puncture the material, which destroys the function of the swimming cap. Especially if the cap is made of latex, which is more fragile than those made of silicone. The latter are much more durable but also cost more.

Moreover, as with many other swimming equipment, it's important to rinse and dry them properly after use. Chlorine and salt water can be really hard on the materials swimming caps are made from, so it's important to rinse them thoroughly in fresh water after getting out of the water. Then, they should dry in a place where they aren't hung or laid in direct sunlight. This way, you can extend the life of your child's swimming cap.
