* Bring correct clothing for poolside and wear it! You should have- Deepings T shirts, shorts or track suit bottoms, clean trainers for your land warm up not flip flops, a hoody to make sure your muscles keep warm before your race.

* You should always wear a Deepings hat during your race. Bring extra hat and goggles in case of breakages.
