Open swim is not permitted during water fitness classes. Please refer to the Group Fitness Class Schedule for class times. The open area may be used during swimming lessons and other times. Private swim lessons may be conducted by an instructor during water aerobic classes from the flag poles to the walls, which will not conflict with the water aerobic participants. Swim instructors may be in the beginner lap lane instructing a Level III or higher child or adult while members are swimming laps. No food or beverage (other than water) is allowed on the pool deck.
