OPEN SWIM: All members may participate in activities in the pool during open swim. All children (under 15) will be swim tested. Children (under 10) must be accompanied by an adult on the pool deck. Children who do not pass a swim test must be accompanied by an adult in the water.
LAP SWIM: There is always one lane available for lap swimming for members. Children who pass the blue test are permitted in the lap lanes and must be swimming laps. Swimmers in the lap lanes must swim continuous laps without stopping so as to not interfere with others sharing the lap lane.
