REAL (Ridgetop Early AM Lap) Swimming


Ridgetop members, 18 and older, can sign up to access the pool for early morning lap swimming. Registered participants will have pool access 7 days a week (weather permitting) from 5:30 AM until pool opening (or when swim team activities begin, generally around 8 AM).


Most mornings, lap swimming will be self-guided, without a coach or lifeguard on deck. However, group workouts and coached workouts will be planned 1-2 days per week (details pending). No lane reservations are required, but a sign-in sheet will be placed at the guard hut to track attendance.


Once registered, your key can be obtained at the guard hut by presenting a valid driver’s license matching your household registration. At the end of the summer, keys will be collected for reuse the following year.


To register, please complete the two-part form (Liability Waiver and Program Participation Agreement) and submit the 2023 payment. The cost of the program is $50 per household. Payments can be made through Venmo by clicking the button at the bottom or searching for @ridgetop in the Venmo app, or you may also provide a check. Completed forms and questions about REAL Swimming should be emailed to Michael Hogg at
