Things to know for Open Lap Swim:

  • Sharing lanes is an essential part of Lap Swim. It is always nice to have your own lane, but pools often see two people splitting the lane (each person takes a side) or circle swimming with 3 or more (just like driving, stay to the right). With no lane restrictions, please be prepared to share a lane if necessary. Thank you!
  • Lanes are a first come, first serve basis, with splitting a lane (for two) or circle swimming (for three or more) encouraged.
  • Check in with the Aquatics Staff upon arrival to help us keep track of usage and better serve you.
  • See the following diagram of our pool layout. Lanes 1-6 are our Multipurpose Pool, with our Rec Pool and Spa to the south:
