Be a Lifeguard at the Kroc Center
Competitive pay, starts at $16 an hour
Red Cross Certification courses offered year round
Lifeguards have the training, skill, and responsibility to keep swimmers and guest safe while they enjoy our pools and aquatics area. Lifeguarding can be a career on its own, or a stepping stone to a career in firefighting, EMT, medicine, sports, and law enforcement. The job is not a day at the beach, as the duties are serious and require attention and the ability to jump into action. From the deck you will monitor pool activities, observe and provide assistance to swimmers, prevent accidents, protect life and enforce regulations, as well as control access to pools and locker rooms. Provide first aid when necessary. Assist swimming instructors in teaching swimming lessons and other aquatic programs. Qualified applicants will need to complete American Red Cross certification, as well as a swimming skills test.
