  • When circle swimming let the other swimmer know upon entering the pool that you are sharing the lane as to avoid collisions. Wait until they have turned and pushed off before entering the water.
  • When passing, tap the foot of the swimmer ahead of you indicating you wish to pass. If you are being overtaken at the turn, stop, and wait until the other swimmer has pushed off.
  • Swim complete laps to avoid confusion with other swimmer.
  • When resting on the wall, please move to the outward corners of the lane to allow other swimmer room to easily turn off the wall.
