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

    Always rinse hair after swim to get out chlorine
