Winter-Spring Pool Schedule

Most pools hire in early spring for summer employment. We hire year-round, but need applications by March 1 for summer employment.


Lifeguard Training Course provides American Red Cross certification to participants who pass the written and practical portions of the course. Lifeguard Training is provided throughout the year, with our main goal of training new Lifeguards who want to apply to work at our pools.
