Lap Swim Etiquette
Be respectful of the facility, the equipment, the other patrons and staff on duty.
Please be aware of and take care not to interrupt others’ swimming with your entry or exit, when changing equipment or resting. The lanes are for lap swimming only. Please exit the pool for long conversations or extended breaks.
LANE CHOICE AND PACING
Know your abilities as a swimmer. Be aware of the water depth, and choose a lane with other swimmers at a similar skill level and pace.
Enter the water feet first. Make sure you are aware of the water depth and other swimmers while entering or exiting.
CIRCLE SWIM AND SHARE
Lap lanes can accommodate six to eight lap swimmers at once when each person circle swims. Swimmers must to stay on the right side of the lanes at all times and swim in a counterclockwise direction. This will reduce congestion and keep the lane moving. Be aware to place yourself in the lane according to speed and ability. If a swimmer catches up to you while swimming simply move over and let them pass, then continue swimming.
Lane lines are not weight bearing equipment. Please do not hang onto the lines between sets or after workouts.
