LAP SWIMMING RULES

  • We encourage lap swimming during the designated time. Lane etiquette: Lanes can be shared.
  • If there is one lap swimmer, use of an entire lap lane is allowed; however, no one is entitled to have exclusive use of an entire lane if someone else wants to swim.
  • If there are two lap swimmers, it is acceptable for one swimmer to swim on the right side and the second swimmer on the left side in one lane.
  • If there are three or more swimmers wishing to swim, the policy is to use circle swimming where swimmers swim out on the right-hand side and back on the left-hand side of lane line. The first lane (closest to the wall) should be for slower swimmers and the second lane for faster swimmers.
  • If there are only two lanes up during designated adult swim hours and there are six or more swimmers, the Service Desk will try to assist in putting up more lap lanes.
