Few workouts can build your cardio fitness like swimming. It is one of the best ways to stay in shape. It helps build heart health, lung capacity, with almost no impact to your joints! If you are looking for a great way to stay in shape, look no further than lap swimming!

At least one lap lane is available during most pool hours, including open swim. The majority of the time, there will be a minimum of two or three lanes available. Lap lane availability will be at the discretion of management. Lap swimmers are expected to circle swim to the right when there are two or more swimmers in the lane. To ensure the safety of members and patrons, lap swim is available for those 16 years of age and older, or those who demonstrate the following skills: ability to swim 100 yards consistently using one of the four competitive strokes and Red Cross Level 5 or greater proficiency. The Lap Pool is also used for other programming and will limit the availability of lanes.
