There are plenty of reasons for your child to require swimming goggles; they may have sensitivity to chlorine, or they may just feel more confident in the water with them. Whatever the reason for your child’s need for swimming goggles, here are the qualities you should be looking for in children’s swimming goggles.
For Young Child Goggles:
Goggles suitable for children between 2 and 6 years old should be comfortable and have a good, solid seal so that water is not let in. If water seeps into the goggles while your young swimmer is swimming, the water can get into their eyes and distract them from their lessons. A great way to get your child involved in the choosing process is to ask them to help choose the design or colour of the goggles.
Goggles suitable for children between 6 and 14 years old should also be comfortable and have a good seal. Junior goggles come in a different variety of styles such as racer masks, training goggles, socket goggles and more. Mask goggles in particular are great for junior swimmers as they provide a great seal and a wider range of vision for underwater swimming.
There are a variety of adult swimming goggles that an adult swimmer aged 14 and over can choose between. Depending on the swimming activity, adult swimmers can choose between swim masks (for scuba and snorkelling), recreational goggles, practice goggles, and competition goggles. Each of these should be closely strapped to your head to prevent leakage.
