Lap Lane Information and Etiquette
Join a lane
When joining a lane, it is courteous to wave or temporarily stop a nearby swimmer to notify them of your presence in a lane. Also, be welcoming if a swimmer decides to join your lane. This is a great time to suggest splitting a lane or circle swimming.
Sharing a lane
1)Split a lane: Two swimmers agree to swim within one lane. One swimmer agrees to swim to the right side, and the other swimmer agrees to swim to the left side of the lane.
2) Circle Swim in a lane: Two or more swimmers agree to share a single lane, by swimming in a counter clockwise fashion on the right side of the lane.
Workout in the water without the impact of land exercise. We offer traditional water exercise classes at a variety of intensities, as well as Ai Chi and Aqua Zumba.
Our traditional exercise classes range from shallow water exercise to deep water fitness. Ai Chi is a simple exercise and relaxation program performed to soothing music in the water using a combination of deep breathing and slow, broad movements of the arms, legs and torso. And Aqua Zumba is a fast-paced cardiovascular workout in the deep-end combined with various Latin American rhythms and dance movements.
