• Swimmers are allocated to training lanes by the coaches - accept their decisions and train accordingly.
  • Remain conscious of where your team mates are in the lane.
  • When coming in to turn you must cut across the lane before making your turn and push off straight - do not turn and then push off at an angle as this is dangerous for the swimmer behind you. 
  • Do not try to overtake someone on the outside between the flags and the wall or within the flags and the lane end - you risk turning on top of each other.
  • Do not give way or stop for a faster swimmer - however be considerate to allow a faster swimmer to pass safely.
  • Faster swimmers must realise that slower swimmers are trying just as hard as they are and their set is no less important. 
  • Pulling feet and swimming "over" other swimmers is forbidden. 
  • One touch ONLY to the foot of the swimmer in front on the side that you are passing can be helpful. 
  • Do not swim on another swimmers' feet - this is annoying and disrespectful to that swimmer.  
  • Do not swim in the middle of the lane - this is the area to be used for passing and is also the extra space needed for the extra inches of the arms and legs of breaststrokers and flyers.  
  • Remember to move to the lane edge when you complete a swim to allow other swimmers behind you to turn or finish correctly and safely.
