Look at me, teacher! I can swim!” 

Every year hundreds of children are taught life-saving water skills through our First Grade Learn to Swim program. Last year Ryan, age 7, was one of them.

“I have never seen him so focused!” his teacher exclaimed. “The first day he wouldn’t get in the water, but now he’s fully engaged and so proud of his accomplishments. It has made such a difference for him in the water and in the classroom! This class changed his life!”

Help change lives today by making a gift to the Y.

Become a Lifeguard

Prepare yourself to help others while giving you a rewarding job opportunity. Learn the duties and responsibilities of lifeguarding, including surveillance, how to use rescue equipment, and how to care for someone who has sustained an injury.

We offer 2 learning formats: Blended learning which includes online study plus onsite skill practice and testing. Our traditional format is all onsite learning. There is a pre-course session in which you are required to pass a swimming skills test.

Upon successful course completion, participants receive an American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification with CPR/AED and First Aid for lifeguards (valid for 2 years). All classes offered will certify you for any depth of water, unless they indicate otherwise.

Prerequisite: 15 years or older, swim 300 yd continuously with breath control, swim 25 yds, retrieve a 10lb diving brick and swim back to wall, and tread water without use of hands for 2 minutes.
