Father’s Day is just around the corner! Here’s a couple gift ideas for Father’s Day, but specifically for those dads that are active swimmers:
Underwater Audio Waterproof iPod
Underwater Audio Waterproof iPod – this is a great gift, because it allows you to listen to your favorite music while swimming laps, training, or even relaxing in the spa after a long day.
Bonus: the Waterproof iPod also functions as a regular iPod! It can be used while running, snowboarding, walking, or lounging around the house. It’s a must for all those active dads!
Earbud Headphones – what would a Waterproof iPod be without headphones?!
You can purchase the newest and latest earbud sport headphones. You can also buy them in bundles, which gives you more for your money.
Floating Water Radio
Floating Water Radio – this is perfect for parties or family days at the pool. Everyone can enjoy their favorite music while splashing around the pool all day.
Waterproof Stop Watch
Waterproof Stop Watch – a must have for all those professional or swim training dads. They can keep track of their time and speed each time.
Which allows them to push themselves harder and beat even their best time!
Water Joggers and Resistance Cuffs
Water Joggers and Resistance Cuffs – an amazing new way to train in the water. The joggers and resistance cuffs add the extra resistance to training, but without being too hard on your body.

Swim dads are the unsung heroes of swimming and without them, teams would have a tough time staying afloat. Some swim dads are responsible for the day-to-day responsibility of getting kids to and from practice, while others help with meets and fundraising. There are many things dads do to help their children, teams and swim family.
Here are 10 reasons to be thankful for swim dads:
Dads drive their kids to practice and meets and make the drive more fun by stopping for treats on the way home.
Dads do the heavy lifting to set up swim meets and carry pop-up tents at away meets. They’re the last ones on deck tearing down and putting meet equipment away.
At meets, dads are not shy about stepping up to help wherever they’re needed—whether it’s behind the hot grill, wearing the neon vest as a deck marshal or timing.
A silly joke from a dad plus a big hug can end a swimmer’s tears after missing a cut for the big meet.
Swim dads spend entire weekends at the pool without a complaint to watch their kids swim a few minutes.
They freely give advice and reach out to newer swim families.
At the end of a long weekend, after the sprint and IM families have gone home, you’ll find dads lap counting for their distance kids.
Dads often serve on parent boards and volunteer their expertise in making decisions.
Dads encourage their swimmers to be their best and cheer loudly for their kids and teammates.
Dads are a source of unconditional love. They love their children regardless if they get a personal best or DQ.
