Become A Lifeguard

Becoming a lifeguard or swim instructor has its benefits. You can get great experience for your resume, learn valuable life skills, and earn extra money.

Lifeguards are more than great swimmers. They are water rescue professionals trained in emergency care. Learn to prevent accidents and educate the public about the hazards and risks associated with aquatic activities and how to be safe around water.

To work as a team member at the Kenora Recreation Centre, the minimum requirements are 14 years of age with current Bronze Medallion. Follow the chart to determine your next step.
