Lap Swim Guidelines for TOSA Pool

* TOSA Pool lap lanes are 25 yards long. 1 mile is 70.4 lengths or 35.2 laps. *

When arriving to lap swim at TOSA Pool

  • Spend a minute observing and roughly timing the pace of the swimmers already in the pool.
  • Select a lane with swimmers similar in speed to your workout pace:

            Slower, recreational lane(s) are closest to the inside pool wall near giant slide, faster lane(s) moving out towards pool wall nearest pool fence.

It is the responsibility of the swimmer entering a lane to inform all swimmers in that lane of their desire to change format (i.e. split or circle swim). Be patient!

In order to catch the attention of the swimmer already in the lane, sit by the pool edge or stand in the corner of the lane. Even if there is only one swimmer in the lane, please notify the swimmer of your intention to share the lane, again asking if circle or split lane swim is preferred.

Entering swimmers should allow incumbents a few laps before expecting them to stop. Incumbent swimmers have the right-of-way, but not the right to own the lane for a workout.

Please respect the variety of skill levels we have in lap swim pass-holders and guests at TOSA Pool!

Be courteous and respectful as this is a recreational facility for all to enjoy.

Children ages 11 and older who have passed the current season swim test, have been assigned a password, and are able to swim continuous laps, are permitted in the lap lane area of the pool.

During open swim hours, 2 lap lanes will generally be open unless high capacity warrants removing lap lanes for a larger swim area.

Please call (414) 302-9160 to find out if the pool is closed due to weather conditions.
