Instructor's Aide

If you or your child are interested in becoming a Swim Lesson Instructor's Aide, you can volunteer this summer!  To volunteer you must be at least 11 years old and have a Red Cross Level 4 Card.  Instructor's Aides assist lifeguards with Tadpoles through Starfish classes.  All aides must complete a Volunteer Application Packet available online or at our office.  Check back this summer for training dates. 

Skills Testing

Every summer, skills testing is available to determine the appropriate class level for your child.  Lifeguard instructors will be present to evaluate your child.  Make sure to bring a swim suit and towel! Skills testing will be performed on May 17 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and May 19 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Smith Park Pool. Registration is not required, and parents may show up with their children on the day of testing.
