Tips for Happy Lane Mates (Lane Swim Etiquette):

  • Always swim in a counter-clockwise fashion, even if only two of you are in the lane.
  • Be cautious and courteous when passing or being passed. If you accidentally kick someone, a quick apology as acknowledgment goes a long way.
  • When stopped at the wall, stay to one side of the lane. Please social distance when possible.
  • When starting a length, be mindful of not cutting immediately in front of anyone.
  • Not mandatory, but we find a smile and greeting to lane mates when the opportunity presents itself tends to make the whole experience more enjoyable for all.
