Family & Lap Swimming

Hello Avon Community,

The District has reopened morning lap swim and family swim on a limited basis. Dates will continue to be posted on this website. In order to accommodate current COVID social distancing, and sanitation guidelines there will be a few changes to our normal procedures as we work to begin using this facility once again. Rules and procedures were developed and adopted from: YMCA Rochester, NYSDOH Guidelines, NYSPHSAA Return to Interscholastic Athletics Guidelines, USA Swimming, and pool reopening plans from other districts. 

Swimmers must sign up prior to the swim session and links are provided below. 

Guidelines and Procedures:

Morning Lap Swim:

  • Monday through Friday 6:00 am - 7:00 am.

  • Three swimmers maximum per lane. 3 lanes will be provided with counter-clockwise circle swimming. (Follow rules of the road, always being on the right hand side.)

  • $1.00 fee per swimmer

  • Swimmers enter the building at the auditorium door and then enter the pool near the weight room.
