  • Lap Swimming Etiquette - Several people can fit in one lane if proper etiquette is observed
  • Lane Speed - take time to observe the other swimmers before deciding which lane to enter and choose to match your speed. Entering a lane - always enter feet first
  • Direction of swim - use the rules of the road, "stay to the right"
  • Passing - the best place to pass is at the wall, but if you must pass in the middle of a lane, do so between the backstroke flags and to the inside of the lane. A light touch on the foot of the swimmer will signify you want to pass.
  • Resting - at the wall, stay to the right of the lane and be aware of swimmers around you.
