ADULT LAP SWIM CHANGES: These changes are necessary because of the overwhelming response we have had to our adult lap swimming this summer. Our primary responsibility is to ensure the safety of our swimmers and our staff. Please be advised of the following changes to Adult Lap Swim:

· Minimum Age – 18 yrs

· Beginning Saturday, 7/18 Lap Swim will begin at 10:00 am on Weekends

· Beginning Monday, 7/20 Lap Swim will begin at 9:00 am on Weekdays

· Only one person per lane (even if you live in the same household)

We will observe how this goes for a week or so and if necessary, we may have to limit lap swim to adults who live in the Amherst Regional School District (Amherst, Pelham, Shutesbury and Leverett). Thank you for your understanding.
