Lap Lane Availability



To ensure your lap swimming session is an enjoyable one, the following lap lane etiquette guidelines have been developed and will be monitored at the Centre.

  • Select a lane based on your ability and stroke(s) you intend to swim during your visit. Note that for safety reasons, some lanes indicate breaststroke is not permitted.
  • While swimming, keep to the left of the lane.
  • In order to pass a swimmer in front, swim past on the right, above the lane line on the bottom of the pool.
  • If you must move across any lanes, check both directions before moving. When waiting at the end of the pool, move across towards the corners of the lane to allow other swimmers to continue swimming laps.


Walk-Run lanes will be provided whenever possible. If there are no designated Walk-Run lanes, please ask one of our friendly lifeguards for the best location for a Walk-Run session.

During peak times (Monday – Friday 3.30pm - 7pm & Saturdays 7am – 1.30pm) the lap lanes may be crowded. Where possible swim during off-peak times and plan your training sessions around the event calendar.


Lap Swimming Etiquette

The following times are provided as a guide for lane designations:

  • Slow Lane: Laps slower than 60 seconds
  • Medium Lane: Laps slower than 45 seconds

These are a guide only and the pool attendants will monitor them throughout the day.
