At Pool Supply Unlimited, you’ll find a great selection of pool supplies for leisure and competitive swimmers alike, including pool ladders and starting blocks (also known as swimming blocks).
 
What are Starting Blocks?
Starting blocks are raised platforms mounted to the edge of the pool deck. These blocks are used by competitive swimmers to launch themselves into the water at the beginning of a race. For this reason, it’s critical that starting blocks meet the stringent guidelines set in place for swimmer safety.
 
Starting block standards vary based on the level of competition. For instance, USA Swimming is a national governing body with it’s own set of racing standards determined by a swimmer’s training and experience. FINA, on the other hand, serves as an international governing body for competitive swimming.
 
At Pool Supply Unlimited, all of our SR Smith pool starting block offerings accommodate a wide range of competitive swimming levels. SR Smith takes into consideration the rules and regulations from FINA, USA Swimming, the NCAA, NFSHSA, and MAHC. Within each starting block product listing you will find which regulatory agency the starting block is approved for use by, ensuring your selection meets the proper standards for your needs.
 
Here, you will also find a variety of swimming block accessories for your new starting blocks, including anchor kits, backstroke start system and trainers, lane line guards, starting block safety covers, lane line storage reels, reel covers, and more.
