You’ll enjoy job satisfaction. As a lifeguard, you are the point person for supporting our visitors’ health and wellness. From the chair or pool deck, you watch for anyone experiencing difficulties or discomfort in the water in order to respond quickly with assistance. You are also a resource for anyone who may have questions about aquatic programming or pool operations. You’ll assist with our team efforts to keep the pool clean and welcoming to all visitors. Our lifeguards are integral to our pool’s operations! Lifeguarding is a job that can be very rewarding for teens and adults.

You’ll be developing lifelong skills. Becoming a lifeguard is an investment in your personal and career success. Lifeguarding will develop your communication, problem solving and leadership skills, and those skills will serve you well no matter what direction you choose to take after lifeguarding.
