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 swim 300 yards using a combination of Front Crawl and Breaststroke.  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.  Participants must also be able to tread water for 2 minutes without using their hands. If you would like to get on our list for upcoming classes, please contact Benjamin Weed.

Classes are offered based on demand. Need your team certified or recertified? Inquire about custom classes today.

Classes require a minimum of 4 people to run.
