Recreation Swim Rules

  1. The lap pool deck and spa area is a quiet area. Loud or rambunctious behavior is prohibited.

  3. Swim diapers and/or tight fitting rubber pants are required for all children who are not potty trained. Swim diapers are available at the Trout Creek Recreation Center front desk. Parents are expected to facilitate potty breaks regularly and often. In the event of a fecal accident in the pool or spas, a mandatory 24-hour closure will be required. Patrons will be directed to available facilities.

Lap Swim Rules

Note: Recreation and family swim hours are available in the first lane of the lap pool from 3-7PM on weekdays and 11AM-7PM on weekends. During the summer months the Lap Pool is reserved for lap swimming only, and the Lap Pool deck is designated as a quiet area when the recreation pool is open.

  1. “Lap swimming” is defined by the ability to repetitively swim at least one length of the pool without assistance.
  2. If it becomes necessary to share lanes with other swimmers, please choose a lane with swimmers that most closely align with your pace. Joining a lane is by agreement of swimmers occupying that lane.
  3. When two or more swimmers occupy a lane, swimmers may opt to split lanes. Circle swimming is required whenever three or more swimmers occupy the same lane.
  4. Slower swimmers should keep to the outer lanes and faster swimmers to the middle lanes.
  5. No running on pool deck.
  6. No diving.
  7. No horseplay, shoving or pushing in or around the pool.
  8. No breath-holding games.
  9. No chewing gum.
  10. No hanging on lane lines.
  11. No alcohol and no smoking.
  12. No glass permitted.
  13. Only those 18 years and older are admitted in the steam room and sauna.
  14. Tampering with any facility equipment (e.g. swimsuit spinner, sauna heater, lockers, ping pong table, ice machine, etc.) is prohibited and will result in immediate loss of privileges.
