Becoming Whistle Worthy

Posted on April 10, 2017 in Social Responsibility, Y News

Lifeguard Training is May 20

To be a YMCA lifeguard requires desire, a high degree of judgement, skill and fitness. Lifeguard training assists our staff to perform quickly and safely in emergency situations. At the Y, we annually provide lifeguard training to build confidence in our team. We want them to be "whistle worthy" while responding to an incident and to prevent accidents. This year our pools will close Saturday afternoon, May 20, for training.
