Optimal Lap Swimming Times And Lap Swimming Etiquette
The cost of lap swim is $5 anytime before 1 pm Monday – Saturday (see schedule). We also usually have two lap lanes out during regular swim hours, although open swim prices do apply.
The Salida Hot Springs Pool is a well-used and well-loved facility! Our schedule can sometimes seem chaotic because we work to accommodate as many people and different groups as possible. In order to make your lap swimming as enjoyable as possible, we offer this handout, “Optimal Lap Swimming Times” each time our schedule changes to help you choose the best time to work out.
Sharing lap lanes is an important skill. When 2 swimmers are in the lane, please decide together whether you will circle swim or each take a side of the lane. When 3 or more people are in a lane, please circle swim. Always try to find a lane where others are swimming at a similar pace, and be conscious of when you push off of the wall.
Check the Aquatic Center master Google calendar schedule for the most detailed information on what is happening at the Aquatic Center.
