Better Swim Etiquette
  • Pre Cleanse
    Please help us to keep your pool clean by following our
    Swim Hygiene guidelines by showering and using the toilet
    facilities before you swim.
  • Respect
    People of different standards and abilities will use the pool. Please
    respect their right to enjoy their swim.
  • Speed
    Choose your lane using the fast, medium and slow signs and by
    watching those already swimming. Before pushing off at each
    turn, check to see if anyone faster is approaching.
  • Direction
    Please follow the directional signs and move across to the
    appropriate side of the lane for each length.
  • Space
    Try and leave at least 5 metres between yourself and another
    swimmer and if it’s possible to see a pace clock, then a 5 second
    gap is just as good.
  • Strokes
    Wide stokes such as butterfly and breaststroke should be avoided
    when the lanes become busy. If you change to a slower stroke as
    part of your session, think about moving lanes.
  • Equipment
    Fitness swimming training equipment, such as fins and hand
    paddles, is permitted at the discretion of the lifeguard and based
    on capacity. Snorkels can be used in conjunction with conventional
    swimming goggles.
  • Resting
    Whether stopping for a rest or catching your breath after
    completing your swim, please be mindful that others using the
    lane will want to keep on swimming without stopping
