Pool:

  • When splitting a lane, we are asking patrons to each pick side to call home. This means that one person will start/stop in the shallow end while the lane partner will stop/start in the deep end. This should prevent clusters of people in the normal starting zone in the shallow end. Check in with the lifeguard to get help picking a lane and position.
