Lap Swimming

The City’s goal is always to make the Plunge as safe as possible and provide a welcoming environment for the hundreds of patrons we serve each day.

 During Phase 1, doors will open for limited Lap and Family Swim beginning July 13.  All swimmers must pre-register for 45-minute blocks of time.  Upon arrival Swimmers must line up outside the plunge on the marked spaces and maintain social distancing of six (6) feet at all times. A COVID-19 screening will take place prior to entry: involving a temperature check and symptom sign off.  Swimmers are strongly encouraged to come dressed and ready for their swim. In order to minimize congregation in enclosed areas where social distancing cannot be maintained, lockers, locker rooms and indoor showers will be closed; however, restrooms and sinks will be available as well as newly installed outdoor showers.  Reservations for Lap Swim will allow only one person per lane, per time block, with swimming in the center of the lane only.  Family Lap Swim lane reservations may only take place in water that is 4. to 4.5 feet deep and will allow for up to four participants per lane; however, all swimmers must be from the same household. Any swimmer under 48 inches tall must be accompanied by an adult, 18 years of age or older, in a 1 to 1 ratio. All participants must remain in the center of the lane and/or wall for social distancing.  

 *Please note swimmers may only sign up for one time block per day.
