Circle Swimming Eases Traffic Flow

lap-swim-circle-swimmingTraffic jams at the pool? Yes, Willamalane Park Swim Center and Splash! at Lively Park are sometimes so busy that it’s hard for swimmers to enjoy their workouts. To help ease the flow for swimmers, Willamalane uses a process called circle swimming.

In circle swimming:
  • Several swimmers (as many as eight or more) can fit in a single lane if proper etiquette is observed and swimmers of like speed are together.
  • Swimmers must share lanes and are expected to circle swim. Lifeguards may help make lane adjustments to accommodate everyone.
  • Be respectful of others who are sharing the lane with you.
  • Choose a correct lane for your swimming speed. Signs are posted to assist swimmers in choosing an appropriate lane for their speed.
  • Be aware of arriving swimmers and be prepared to move to a more appropriate lane if necessary.
  • Be sure to notify other swimmer(s) when you are entering a lane. This is done by sitting at or on the edge of the pool, waving a kickboard under water or standing in the water in the corner of the lane.
  • When passing, wait and pass at the wall. Gently tap the foot of the swimmer ahead of you indicating you wish to pass. Do not attempt to swim around a slower swimmer as this may cause collisions with swimmers coming in the opposite direction.
  • A lead swimmer, who feels a touch on the feet from an overtaking swimmer, should continue to the next wall, then stop in the corner of the lane to let faster swimmer(s) pass.
  • When resting on the wall, please move to the outward corners of the lane to allow other swimmers room to easily turn at the wall. Be courteous and responsive if you are asked to move lanes by the lifeguards.
  • The lifeguard on duty will have the final say in the arrangement of lanes.

Thanks for swimming with Willamalane!
