Lap Swim

Lap Swim

Effective Monday, November 2, lap swim passes will once again be available for sale and use at the RBAC!

If you are an existing pass holder, your pass may once again be used to access the facility. As of November 2, your existing pass will have the same amount of time remaining on the pass as there was on March 15, when the RBAC closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

If you are not an existing pass holder or your pass expires, you may purchase a monthly or quarterly lap swim pass online or in person, or purchase a day-use pass in person. Annual and semi-annual passes will not be sold at this time.

Reservations will no longer be taken, as lanes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and subject to availability. Two swimmers may split a lane, each stopping at opposite sides of the pool to maintain physical distancing. If a lane is full, you must wait for a lane to become available. We ask that swimmers limit their workouts to one hour during peak times or when others are waiting. Circle swimming is not allowed.

Upon arrival, your temperature will be taken prior to entering the Clubhouse. We ask that do not come to the Center if you show any signs of illness.

A chair will be placed at the end of each lane for you to place your belongings on, as well as provide a visual reminder of your side of the lane and where to rest. During inclement weather, bleachers will be set up under tarps for personal items.

Please continue to come to the Center dressed appropriately for the weather with your swimming attire underneath.

Please be mindful of wearing your masks whenever you are not in the water and remain socially distanced as much as possible. Also, please do not spit into the gutters while swimming.

You must still contact us to reserve a time if you plan on swimming with a snorkel.  To request accommodations for a disability-based need, please contact us at webmaster@rosebowlaquatics.org.

Lap swimmers should bring their own kickboard, buoys, and goggles. Shared pool equipment is prohibited.

Each user should bring their own water bottles; the bottle water filling station will be available, but the water fountain will be closed.

Thank you for helping us keep everyone healthy as we are back in the pool and swimming.

The Diplomacy of Shared Space: Please be courteous and responsive if you are asked to move lanes by the lifeguards. The lifeguard on duty will have the final say in the arrangement of lanes. Please wear a mask when you are not in the water.
