Lap Lane Etiquette

We strive to have lap lanes open for lap swimming at all times. If these lanes are full, please feel free to join a lane in which the occupant matches your speed and swimming ability.

Swim Diaper Policy

Any child who is not yet toilet trained must wear an aquatic swim diaper. For your convenience these diapers are available for purchase at the front desk. There are diaper changing stations available in both family changing rooms located next to the pool. Please do not change your child's diaper on the pool deck.
