  1. Please circle swim in all lap lanes. Even if you are the only swimmer in a lane we ask that you circle swim so that swimmers feel welcome to share any lane.
  2. For swimmer safety, please share a lane with swimmers that appear to match your swim speed even if there is a lane with fewer swimmers.
  3. For swimmers safety, please take care when passing swimmers in your lane. Awareness and care of those you are sharing a lane with can make your swimming experience safe and enjoyable.
  4. Please feel free to kindly and civilly resolve any challenges you have with other swimmers. If for some reason you are unable to resolve challenges with another swimmer in a mindful way, please let staff know so that we can help resolve the issue.
