First: get plenty of sleep, eat well, drink lots of water.
Second: pack your gala bag (costume/jammers, goggles, Sharks hat, Sharks kit)
Third: Order a shedload of Leicester Sharks tattoos.
These are almost as important as your swimming goggles because they make you:
- Look cool
- Scare the opposition (perhaps)
- Swim faster (maybe)
But mainly, it's fun to turn up to galas covered in Leicester Sharks tattoos, right?
For younger kids: you can enjoy going to school on Monday still wearing your tattoos.
For older kids: you can start practising where you'll have your actual tattoo. (But you didn't hear that from us and we are not condoning body art on any level.)
To order your tattoos: ask your swimming coach, OR head to our Facebook page and tell us how many you need.
Leicester Sharks tattoos are sold in packs of two and cost £1.
To apply the tattoos: remove the protective film and place the Sharks logo face down on the skin. Hold a wet cloth to the back of the tattoo for about a minute, peel off the backing and voilà!
