Lap Swimming & Walking via SignUp Genius
LSRC is offering members the opportunity to enjoy lap lane swimming under the Phase 3 guidelines. Each of the pools (competition and recreation) is set up with devoted lap lanes: one in the competition pool and two in the recreation pool. You should reserve your time in advance to make sure you can get a time slot to your liking. You should also reserve a lap lane for your lane walking, but in the recreation pool. For your structured exercise program, lap lanes are available and will permit social distancing in the lanes.
Here is the link to initiate your lap lane reservation: Lap Lane Reservation
If you visit the pools without a lane reservation, and a lap swim lane is open/unused, you can request using the free lap lane. Please note that lap swim lanes cannot be used simply for playful swimming and floating around.
Competition & Recreation Pools Open Under COVID Guidelines
The Board of Directors approved a seasonal opening on June 13th of the competition and recreation pools under the directive of Executive Order #65 and its associated requirements related to the coronavirus. Under Phase 3, the wading/baby pool is now open.
Parents can use SignUp Genius to reserve family play time for their young children in the wading/baby pool. There should be three (virtual) sections available for reservation.
Under Phase 3, recreational and playful use of the pools is permitted. The competition pool will have one lap lane devoted to lap swimming and the rest of the pool is available for recreational use, but dedicated to adults only (at this time).
The recreation pool has 2 dedicated lap lanes for lap swimming/walking, and the rest of the pool is set up in virtual quadrants for recreational (freeform) play and exercise.
NOTE: Change as of 7/01/2020: Under Phase Three of the Governor's E.O. #65 COVID guidelines, guests of members will be permitted. Individual guest passes remain at $7 each and a book of 10 guest passes is $50. Members are limited to 2 guests per visit under Phase 3.
