Lifeguard Training

Millions of people of all ages and backgrounds come to the Y for water safety education, to learn to swim, and to meet their health and wellness goals in the pool. Lifeguards are essential to ensuring a safe environment for those millions of individuals.

Lifeguards maintain safe swimming conditions in and around the pool and create a positive atmosphere that promotes member safety and engagement. Their presence allows us to offer life-changing programs in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. When we do this effectively, we deliver on our cause as a nonprofit: strengthening community.

Lifeguards are essential to the safety of our aquatic facilities. They help ensure that our members and program participants enjoy their aquatic experience.

If you would like to obtain the skills necessary to become a lifeguard, and possibly work in one of our facilities, we offer classes at the Hartley Drive Family YMCA. The next Lifeguard Class schedule is To be Determined. Please continue to check this page for updates!
