A lap is two lengths of a pool as defined by most competitive swimmers and Webster's Dictionary. The distance of a lap depends on how long the pool is. Most pools are either 25 yards or 25 meters, thus making a lap 50 yards or meters. You would need to ask the pool director if the particular pool is meters or yards as it can be difficult to tell, unless you are a really good judge of distance. Other pools can be 50 meters. Olympic-size pools are 50 meters x 25 meters.
