Here's what you need to know about lap swimming at the Cottonwood Heights Rec Center:

Lap swimmers must be at least 14 years old, or have permission from a aquatic team member. Must be accompanied by an adult. 

Coaching is prohibited from the deck or from the water, unless in an organized program through the facility. 

Lap swimmers must swim in designated lap swim area.

Water walking, and deep water exercise are allowed during lap swim times in lap swim lanes. 

Available lap lanes are first come first serve. 

Pool schedule will be enforced by lifeguards, if you're asked to exit the pool please do so immediately. 

Our pools are for multiple uses. Facility programs may restrict lane availability.  When limited lap lanes are available, lanes must be shared with other lap swimmers.  If 2 or more swimmers need to share a lane, circle swimming must be used.  

Lap swim schedule is subject to change based on staffing, weather, and other pool conditions.
