Lifeguards play a critical role in keeping the Community Center aquatics park a safe and friendly environment. Lifeguards are hired year-round, with an increased hiring season during the summer.
starguard certification classes
Youth ages 15 yrs. and older can take classes at the Community Center to train as lifeguards. They must pass a pre-course skills test on the first day, attend all classes in the session, demonstrate competency in each skill and pass a written exam. StarGuard training is offered in the winter and spring. Completion of training does not guarantee a position on the Community Center lifeguarding staff.
Youth ages 12-14 yrs. can job shadow lifeguards in the summer while learning about aquatics safety, emergency response and teamwork. Must be comfortable in the water, be able to swim the full length of the pool and pass a pre- and post-course skills test.
