Lap Pool Etiquette
Many of you are beating the summer heat by getting your workout done in the lap pool. We would like to remind everyone to be courteous of other lap pool users and please practice the following lap lane etiquette:
  • Swim to the right of your lane when sharing the lane with another swimmer or jogger
  • If there is already a swimmer in the same lane you are entering wait at the end of the lane before entering so that they see you have arrived.
  • When standing at the wall of a lane, stand to the right (when facing the wall) whenever possible to allow space for the incoming swimmer
  • If you can't make your reservation, please be sure to cancel it online to free up the lane for another user.
Lap lanes are now open to four users.
Thank you for practicing correct lap pool etiquette.
Calaway Give-Back
You can now find the Calaway Give- Back donation box in the Ranch House Foyer. Lift-up will be picking up donations from the facility after the holiday weekend. So, be sure to bring drop off any donations before the weekend ends.
