Pool Schedule

If there is not an empty lane, you may need to share.  A single lane can accommodate several swimmers. If you need to share a lane, try to pick one in which the swimmer swims at a comparable pace as you do.  Make sure the swimmer is aware that you’re going to join them.  Discuss whether to split the lane or to circle swim.

Are you looking for a fun way to get into shape, while using the qualities of water? Buoyancy enables one to do aerobic exercise with minimum strain. Resistance of the water helps tone muscles and quickly build endurance. Movement of the joints is greatly improved in the water, making aqua-aerobics an excellent program for those with arthritis, back problems or other medical conditions.
