ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

Lifeguard Training

The Town North Y offers many lifeguarding classes throughout the year.  The classes include CPR, First Aid, and oxygen trainings.  This course will give you the skills and knowledge to be an effective lifeguard.

With a lifeguarding certification, you can also quickly become a swimming instructor or coach, as well as a lifeguard.  This will open up many opportunities for you during the summer and into your college career.

Lifeguard training was instrumental in getting me a summer job. I love working for the Y!
