Lap Swim

Lap lanes will be open during all pool hours, although the number of lanes available will vary depending on other programs in progress, (i.e., during all swim lesson programs the shallow lanes will be closed to anyone other than those enrolled in the lessons). The pool will have limited lanes from 4-6 p.m., Monday-Friday due to swim team practices and other activities.

Circle swimming is mandatory during crowded times. Lap lane schedules are available at the Front Desk.

Children 12 years of age or older, who are competent lap swimmers, may lap swim when accompanied in the pool area by a supervising adult.

Shallow Lane

There is only ONE shallow lane at the Koret Center pool. This lane is often blocked for swim lessons, trainings, or programs. Please take note if you plan to use this lane. There is a white board updated weekly (in between locker rooms on the pool deck) with lane closures in addition to the lap pool schedule.
