Etiquette for Sharing the Water with a Lap Swimmer

Before you jump into the water there are a few things you should know about the etiquette to follow when it comes to sharing a pool with lap swimmers

Normally, public pools will set aside time for lap swimmers. Pay attention to this and try to avoid their time in the pool. But, at other times the pool is open to all (known as open swim) and you may find yourself sharing the water with a lap swimmer. Take heed of these etiquette rules to make your time enjoyable and safe. The most important thing to remember is that swimmers can only see a few feet in front of them. They do not see the entire pool. Never ever surprise a swimmer with your presence in the lane they are using.

Water Walking

Lap swimmers will normally not mind sharing a lane with a water walker if you will let them know you are in the lane before you start walking. This is easily done by entering the lane and standing in the corner at the end of the pool. The swimmer will see you and will do one of two things. He may stop and speak to you or he may make his turn and continue swimming. Watch him carefully if he does not speak to you. If he is the only one in the lane, the swimmer will normally take one side of the lane indicating you may have the other.

Stay out of the swimmers way. A swimmer can see the lane in front of her but not as well as you can with your head above the water line. So make sure you do the adjusting when it is necessary.

If there are two or more swimmers in all the lanes and no lanes open, you will need to wait your turn. Do not join the swimmers. There is no place for your activity. You cannot stay out of the swimmers way which means you are a hazard. When a swimmer swims into someone it hurts not only the swimmer, but could injure the other person as well. It is best to be patient.

Be willing to share your lane should a swimmer arrive at the pool after you. Open swim time is just that. It is time for everyone to share. Determine the side of the lane each of you will take and then continue to enjoy your workout.

Water Aerobics

Swimmers will avoid a large group of aerobic exercises in the pool. And most pools will close a section or the entire pool for their organized classes. But if you come to do your workout solo you may encounter a swimmer.

Just as with the water walkers, it is important you make your presence know to a swimmer if you want to share a corner of his lane. Follow the same steps for gaining the swimmer's attention as outlined for the water walker.

You will need to be extremely careful that you do not accidentally kick, or strike the swimmer with your arms, legs or tools you are using for your aerobics. Keep your attention focused on the swimmer as she passes you and you should be just fine sharing the lane. And as with water walking, if all the lanes have two or more swimmers in action, then wait until they clear the pool to begin your aerobics.

Playing in the Pool

Children love to splash and have a good time with water, but they just don't mix with lap swimmers. During open swim time never let your children near a lane occupied by a lap swimmer. If you can put an empty lane between you and the swimmer, that would be best. Keep a close eye on them and make sure they stay clear of the swimmer. Swimmers could easily injure your child if they wander into the swimmer's path. Remember, the time set aside for lap swimming should never be breached by your child's play.

One additional word of caution; if the pool you are using does not have lane ropes it should at least have markings on the bottom of the pool indicating the lanes. Pay attention to the stripes. They are as good as the lane ropes to a swimmer. They outline the "lanes" of the pool. Make sure you stay within your lane and don't wander over the stripes or you may get run over by a swimmer.

If you follow these simple steps you will be safe in the company of a lap swimmer and everyone will enjoy the water.
