Lap Swim at Sunnyvale Swim Complex

We offer two separate Lap Swim programs at the Sunnyvale Swim Complex. One is Organized Lap Swim Workout, and the second is Lap Swim by appointment (swim pass and appointment required). Read further for details.

Organized Lap Swim Workout

The organized lap swim workout program allows for swimmers to be grouped with others seeking a challenging workout during the lap swim appointment. The program is available Monday to Friday, 6-9 a.m. in 45-minute workouts. To join this workout, Make a Lap Swim Appointment. Then check "Organized Lap Swim" under "Lane Request." 
You must be:

  • Age 18+

Lane Sharing: you may share a lane ONLY with someone from your same living unit.

Lap Swim Appointments

Swim at your own pace and schedule. Create your own workout plan. 

Lap Swim Appointment Details

  • All lap swim appointments start on the hour.
  • You may swim for a maximum of 45 minutes within the appointment time.
