LAP SWIMMING GUIDELINES
- Lap lanes are intended for lap swimming only. Other water exercises should not be performed in the lane when lap swimmers are present in the lane or waiting for a lane.
- Lap lanes are first come - first serve. During peak usage, it will become necessary for you to split lanes or circle swim with other swimmers.
- When entering a lane with other swimmers, notify them that you will be joining the lane.
- Please wait until other swimmers have pushed off before entering the water. Do not jump, dive, or push into oncoming swimmers.
- Always swim complete laps of the pool. Avoid stopping in the middle of the lane for any reason; this can interfere with others’ progress and cause collisions.
- Be aware of your space in the lane and the orientation of others.
- Slower swimmers should wait to push off the wall until faster swimmers have passed.
- If you have to stop for any reason, stand in the corner of the lane so that other swimmers have ample room for turns.
- The supervisor or lifeguard may ask you to switch lanes. Please accommodate our requests.
- Enjoy your workout! When we work together, lap swimming can be a wonderful experience for all levels of fitness.
Circle Swimming is utilized to accommodate three or more swimmers using the whole lane; down and back on the right side of the lane.
Circle Swimming is done by swimming in a counterclockwise direction within the lane - similar to cars on a road. Keep to the right at all times.
Look at the speed of the swimmers in the lanes and select a lane that is most appropriate for you. Notify the lap swimmers you would like to join the lane.
To avoid collisions, only begin swimming when the other swimmers in the lane have been made aware of your presence.
If you need to pass in your lane, move up to the swimmer and tap his/her foot. A tap is an indication of your presence and your want to pass. A pass must be initiated in time to overtake the slower swimmer before the wall to avoid a potential collision at the wall.
