Lap Lane Rules and Etiquette:

  • Lap lanes are for lap swimming. Water walkers and swim lessons may use lap lanes when not occupied by a lap swimmer. Priority goes to the lap swimmers. It is the responsibility of the lap swimmer to politely ask non lap swimmers to exit a lane if no other lanes are available for use. Water walkers and lessons must exit the lanes and use the open space outside of the lap lanes when asked to move. Exceptions are given to swim lessons where the student is actively swimming laps
  • Lap lanes are first-come-first-serve. During peak usage it will become necessary for you to share lanes and circle swim with other swimmers.
  • When entering a lane with other swimmers, notify them that you are joining them. Never dive, jump, or push off into oncoming swimmers. Wait until they have made the turn and push off. 
  • Be aware of your space in the lane and orientation of others.
  • If you need to pass in your lane, move up to the swimmer and tap their foot. It is inappropriate to grab or pull the person, but a tap is a clear indication of your presence and intent to pass.
  • If you stop at the wall for any reason, squeeze into the corner of the lane so that other swimmers have ample room for turns.
  • Lifeguards may ask you to switch lanes. Please accommodate our requests. 
  • We reserve the right to close lap lanes to accommodate special events or programs.
  • At the discretion of any staff any individual that needs to use the ADA chair as a necessity to enter the water, and must use the wall for constant support will be granted shared priority of the lap lane closest to the wall. 
It is the responsibility of the patrons when entering the facility to read and obey all posted signs.
