Length Swim program tweaks coming to Hamilton in January


Published December 27, 2023 at 5:48 pm

Life in the fast lane isn’t for everybody in Hamilton, and that includes the city’s swimming pools, with 87 per cent of those polled in a survey on the Length Swim program agreeing the lanes should have speeds clearly identified.

Just over two-thirds – 69 per cent – of those surveyed believe the length swim etiquette currently posted is satisfactory, however.

There were 517 responses to the survey in total and the poll will help guide recreation staff in making changes to the program, beginning in January.

Some of those tweaks include:

  • Identification of lane speeds
  • Updated etiquette rules and signage
  • Greater guidance for passing and selecting a lane speed
  • Staff training and greater enforcement
