Lane allocation

NTNUI Swimming has all the 8 lanes in Pirbadet after closing hours. Before that (20:30-21:00), we only have 4 lanes. The lanes are divided after skill and motivation. If you are a retired competetive swimmer or have a high motivation for swimming, you can put yourself in one of the fast lanes. If you wish to have a chill session, you can swim in the slow lanes. The choice is yours.

Slow lanes

For the newbie with regards to swimming as a sport, or the ones who simply wish to relax and swim in their own pace. Distance: under 2 000 metres. Lane 7 and 8.

Intermediate lanes

For you who have swam before, but not necessarily in competition. Also some of these swim the program, but somewhat shorter than the fast lanes. Many of those who swim here move over to the fast lanes as their fitness improves. Distance: 2 000 - 3 000 metres. Lane 5, 6 and 1 (when available).

Fast lanes

Typically you who are a retired competetive swimmer, or is still active. These lanes swim the program to its full extend, and divide themselves to as many lanes as they need (typically two or three). In these lanes there are former norwegian champions, and those who stopped during high school. Distance: above 3 000 metres. Lanes: 3, 4 and 2 (when available).

In NTNUI Swimming you can freely choose wich lane you want to swim in, based on your skills and motivation that particular day.
