Pool Rules And Regulations

Open Swimming

  • Please note that lessons will receive priority for pool space.
  • During open swim hours, there will be one to three lap lanes in place and the rest of the pool will be set aside for open swim activities.

Lap Swimming

  • Please note that lessons will receive priority for pool space.
  • Lap lanes are for swimming only. No water walking or other uses are allowed.
  • Faster swimmers (45 second 50's or better) should swim in the center lanes. The outside lanes are for slower swimmers.
  • Swim in a counter-clockwise direction, keeping to the right of the lane. Circular swimming permits more than two in a lane. Splitting lanes is discouraged, and may not be permitted.
  • The signal to switch to a counter clockwise circular pattern will be a kickboard placed vertically in the water at the end of the lane as the swimmer approaches.
  • Swim continuously, stopping at the ends of the pool only.
  • Yield right-of-way to faster swimmers. Don't stop mid-lane. When you reach the wall, pause at the right side of the lane to allow the faster swimmer(s) to pass. If you wish to pass someone, gently tap the slower person's foot.
  • When finished, please move to another area of the pool so that other swimmers may swim.
  • Use extra care when using fins, kickboards, and hand paddles. (The use of fins, snorkels, and masks may be restricted.)
