Lane allocations are based on current/recent best 400m F/C and 200m swim times. These are used to calculate your Critical Swim Speed (CSS)
You must swim in the correct lane as advised by the coaches. Regular checks on ability and suitability for your lane will take place during sessions.
Sessions are posted in advance, if you are injured or ill you may swim down a lane/group however you must swim at that lane’s pace and content of session and must inform the lead coach beforehand.
Depending on attendee’s each session, certain lanes may become busier than others – if in these scenarios it is the lead coach’s decision who moves up or down a lane to maximum available space, ensure safety of all swimmers and to allow you to have a quality training session.
