Lap Swim

Lap Swim

Lap swim will be available with one swimmer allowed per lane. As of now, lanes will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, with a physically distanced queue for each pool. On deck, the queues will have a limited capacity due to space limitations. Upon the event those lines reach capacity, there will be physically distanced lines out in front of the Center. Staff will welcome you in the Center as space in the queue allows.

Please check our pool schedules below for updated lane availability. If a lane is full, you must wait for a lane to become available. We ask that all workouts are limited to one hour. Aqua walking in the shallow end is allowed, during times that the shallow end is not reserved. Masks must be worn and you must maintain a distance of 8 – 10 feet from others at all times.

Passes valid for Lap Swimming:

If you are an existing pass holder, you may use your pass to access the facility. 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. Team memberships and water fitness passes are also valid for lap swimming.

At the Center:

Upon arrival, your temperature will be taken in the lobby of the Clubhouse and we ask that you self-screen for symptoms prior to arrival. We ask that do not come to the Center if you show any signs of illness or are under quarantine or isolation orders.

Locker rooms are temporarily closed. Everyone must rinse off using the deck showers prior to their swim. Family changing rooms will be available for restroom use only.

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.

Safety Precautions:

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.

Entering the Water: Always use a feet-first entry into shallow water. You may dive into the pool from the deep end.

Number of People in a Lane: One

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.
