Hamptons Swim Fall Things To Know

Fall is finally here! Hamptons Swim is excited to begin lessons starting this September-October 2020. As summer comes to an end, Hamptons Swim is geared up with some tips and tricks on how to prepare for swimming this fall.


If you’re starting lessons with us this season or simply looking for cooler weather best practices, see below for 3 important tips:


  1. POOL TEMPERATURE

As Fall brings cooler weather, we want to make sure your pool is set to a warmer temperature to keep your swimmers comfortable. The warmer the water the longer we can enjoy the pool! All pool heaters are different so parents should allow the pool to heat up the night before. Hamptons Swim suggests keeping the pool to at least 87 degrees to ensure happy and comfortable swimmers.


  1. FALL WEATHER TIMING

Taking into account the changing temperatures from morning to evening is important when scheduling lessons. September ranges from mid 60 degree temperatures starting at 7AM with a high of 75 around 2PM. Temperatures will drop to low 70’s later in the evening. October weather will bring high 60’s low 70’s weather mid day with temperatures dropping to low 60’s morning and evening. The Hamptons Swim team suggests checking the weather the night before and allowing ample time for your pool heater to warm up.


  1. WETSUITS

Not only are wetsuits meant to block the sun but will keep us warm throughout our fall season! Wetsuits are a great way to add extra comfort and warmth while swimming. Kids are recommended to get a wetsuit with 2-3mm thickness. Hamptons Swim suggests shopping local at Flying Point Surf in store or online to get extra swim gear.
