Tampon alternatives for swimming (tween)

My tween daughter hates swimming on her period. Tampons were a failed experiment and she refuses to try again. I see there are various period panties/swim bottoms. Anyone have suggestions? She loves swimming, so I hate to see her miss out.

Menstrual sponges are an alternative, but they may gross her out as you have to rinse them and reuse them.

First off, make sure she understands her anatomy and the difference between a urethra and a vagina. Then maybe try a cup. Here is one brand.
