Lifeguard Training

We offer American Red Cross lifeguarding classes at Yost Pool. We teach from the American Red Cross Blended Learning curriculum, which allows students to do the majority of lecture work at home at their own speed. Internet access is required to participate in our Lifeguard Training classes.  Participants must be 15 years of age by the end of class.  Participants must be able to jump into the deep end and swim 150 yards using a combination of Front Crawl or Breaststroke then tread water for 2 minutes without using their hands, followed by 50 more yards of swimming.  Participants must be able to swim 20 yards, retrieve a 10-pound brick from the bottom of the pool, return without using their hands to swim, and then climb out of the water.  If you would like to get on our list for upcoming classes, please contact Benjamin Weed.

Classes are offered based on demand. Generally, our summer season starts around May and at the end of our summer season in September. Need your team certified or recertified? Inquire about custom classes today.

Classes require a minimum of 5 people to run.
