  6. 6. Pool Etiquette<br />Fill one swimmer per lane first<br />Then ask to share lane - each use one side<br />Entering as 3rd person - approach a shared lane where swimmers are swimming your pace and ask for circle swim<br /> Space yourself so you will not be swimming right on the other person's feet<br />If you approach a slow swimmer gently tap their feet - it's their choice but they should stay at next wall and let you pass.<br />Once you find your main pool, you will generally get to know the other swimmers that are there when you are. <br /> More likelyto share lane with you.<br />You will also learn slow times for the pool and schedule when lanes are more available.<br />Some people will let you know that they only have a few laps left and you can get in once they leave.<br />Be aware of center lane. If sharing lane no one gets the area on top of the stripe. Bixby Y - different??<br />
