Pool Etiquette

Please remember that the Aquatic area is a ‘shared use’ space open to all levels.

Lap Pool

When lap pool lanes are in use, lane sharing is  required with other swimmers or water walkers. Walkers should share the shallower lanes, swimmers share deeper. If you’re coming into a lane, check to make sure you are at a comparable ability level to the person you will be sharing with.  

There are 2 ways to share the lane:

  1. Split the lane
  2. Circle swim

Splitting the lane means each swimmer stays on one side of the lane. To Circle swim, you follow the rules of driving and stay to the Right side. You should only stop to rest at the end of the lane and stay to the right corner of the lane to allow your fellow swimmer room to turn.

Water walkers/ exercisers are welcome in the lap pool.  If you plan to swim laps and the pool is empty, please leave the shallow lanes free for those who might come later wanting to do a walking workout.

Warm Water Pool

When classes are in session, the pool is reserved for the class. Those attending class are required to get a pass at the Service Desk to ensure that no more than 22 people are in the pool.

During open swim the pool is multi-use.  Please leave the shallow area open for those who want to water walk.  For those wanting to float and socialize, please stay in the deeper area and to the sides of the pool to allow room for others to do their work out.  

Deck/Locker Rooms

Be sure to shower off before entering the pool areas to remove any lotions or perfume that can alter the chemical balance of the water.  Dry off upon exiting the pool to avoid leaving puddles that can cause slippery floor surfaces.

We appreciate everyone doing their part to maintain a safe and effective workout environment!
