Lap Swim

Lanes are dedicated to lap swimming in the Competition Pool and the Recreational Pool seven days a week year-round, and are under lifeguard supervision at all times. Colored cones indicate lane usage.

One or two swimmers may split a laneThree or more swimmers must circle swim, counter-clockwise (staying to the right in each direction). If you are the third swimmer entering a lane, please make sure the other two swimmers are made aware before you start swimming.

Lanes are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Lane availability schedules can be found here for the Competition Pool and here for the Recreational Pool.

The minimum age for lap swim is 8 years old. All lap swimmers must be able to swim the entire length of the lane and may be subject to a swim test at the direction of Lifeguard staff. For swimmers under the age of 14, adult supervision is required.
