LAP LANES

Because there has been a significant increase in lap swimmers, the YMCA can no longer guarantee each swimmer will have a lane. Since numerous activities occur in the pool, the YMCA is unable to add additional lines. The three lap lanes need to suffice while other scheduled activities are proceeding. Sharing of the lap lanes is required and expected.
