    • Please use the most suitable lane for your speed and stroke.
    • Lifeguard staff may ask customers to change lanes to benefit continuous flow of all swimmers.  Please obey instructions given by Lifeguards at all times.
    • Entering the water - wait until there is a large gap between people and slip into the water feet first.
    • Be polite to swimmers of varying skill levels.
    • Passing - if you find yourself catching up with a swimmer in front of you, the request to pass is signified by a gentle tap on the feet to let them know that you need to pass.  The swimmer will then have to stop at the next wall and let you pass.
    • Do not turn into oncoming swimmers.
    • If you cannot keep up with the pace, please change lanes.
    • Above all, please use common sense and courtesy.
