Lap Swim No Show/No Call Policy: No shows for lap swim appointments are documented on a hourly basis (if any). Guests who fail to arrive for their reserved lap swim time will be documented. Two no shows will result in a restriction to reserve lap swim for one week no reservation access. 

Cancellation Policy: Please call and cancel as soon as possible. Continual cancellations or no shows will result in a restriction to reserve lap swim for one week.

In an effort to serve more of our community members we are strongly encouraging lap swimmers to limit their visits to 2 times per week.  We ask members who are in the same household to share a lane. Starting at 8 a.m. every Saturday, a new week for sign up will be posted. Thank you for considering others as you make your reservations.
