Step 1:

Come to a Tuesday evening pre-test at 7 pm! No need to sign-up in advance, but be sure to be here 30 minutes early if it's your first time at the Y. Bring a parent or guardian if you are under 18 years. A pre-test will be held every Tuesday prior to a lifeguard course.

The pre-test includes:

  • 300 yard swim of front crawl and/or breaststroke
  • Retrieve a 10lb brick from 8 feet deep and swim 20 yards on your back using only your legs
  • tread water for 2 minutes using only your legs

Step 2:

After passing the pre-test, visit the front desk to register for your course! Remember it's first come-first serve and spots fill up quickly. You can also click here to register online.

Step 3:

The Y is hiring at all locations! Take a class before April and submit an application on our website to be invited in for a group interview!
