Lap Swimming Etiquette
While lap swimming is available, there are times when lap lanes are limited due to other programs. Please familiarize yourself with the pool schedule. Lap lanes are first-come-first-serve. However, during peak usage it will become necessary for you to share your lane with another swimmer(s). When approaching to share a lane, please ask the person who is already occupying the lane. When sharing a lane, each person may choose a side of the lane or circle swim. Please remember to stay to your side of the lane including your legs and arms.
Circle Swim Courtesy
When looking to join a lane for circle swimming, look at the speed of the other swimmers and select a lane that is appropriate for you. Then notify the swimmer(s) in that lane that you would like to join them. Keep to the right at all times. Swimming within a lane is by agreement of the majority. Swimmers should arrange themselves in speed order, fastest to slowest. Always be aware of what is going on in your lane. If a swimmer behind you looks as though he/she may overtake you on the next lap, stop and wait in the corner for the swimmer to pass Push off underwater to avoid making waves for oncoming swimmers.
