Hi all, my 8 year old son has swimming with school for the next 2 weeks. The swimming lessons are taking place each afternoon at Europa Pools. The letter sent home by the school regarding this states that boys must wear TIGHT swimming trunks and not loose shorts. Apparently this rule has been put in place by Europa Pools. Does anyone have any idea why this rule has been put in place as I find it strange. Why can't my son wear his normal swimming shorts which do not put him on display!!!!!

Pure guesswork here.

It "may" be a safety thing, loose shorts being pulled against the filtration system

However I think it might just be badly worded, a lot of lads wear loose shorts that are not designed for swimming (gym shorts, basketball shorts etc) they don't have drawstrings on them and can quite easily come off in the pool. By saying they need to wear "tight" shorts I don't think they mean anything more than shorts that can be pulled "tight" (have a drawstring) so they don't come off.

Having seen the swimming schools training there, I would say you need "proper" swimming trunks, you can get ones with longer legs so they're not so much "speedos" but they're still tight.

That's what I managed to get for him in the end. I just don't understand why he can't wear his normal swimming shorts.

It was the same when my kids went swimming with school at the oval,the girls had to wear swimming costumes & the boys had to wear swimming trunks.My boys wore short swimshorts, its the long style theyre not allowed to wear probably health & safety

Hi, spoke to Europa pools and the school re this today and both have denied they made the rule!!! The letter from the school was scanned in and e-mailed to the manager at Europa pools who is looking into it. The school are now sending out a new letter saying any trunks can be worn and that the old letter was apparently badly worded!!!!
