  • Not certified? We can train you! 
  • If you work full-time, we provide housing for free at the Village apartments!

Fine Print: 

All employees must be current students, registered for Fall 2023. Incoming students can be hired starting July 1st. We offer part-time and full-time hours at both indoor and outdoor facilities. We will work around class schedules, but all staff must be able to work a minimum of 14 hours (part-time), and 32 hours (full-time). The full-time staff gets free housing in the Village.

Currently certified lifeguards – we accept all major certifications, and can recertify you for free.

Summer Lifeguard Employment Form

Non-certified students – Students that are not currently certified can take a pretest for free before you register for a lifeguard training course. If you pass the pretest and can work a minimum of 14 hours per week for the summer (average), than we will certify you for free. If you can work full-time, we may also be able to offer free housing for the summer (space is limited, so this option is first-come, first-serve).
