Lifeguarding is a rewarding job for all ages.  Young lifeguards learn about professionalism, decision making, teamwork, leadership, customer service, and most importantly – how to save lives. 

Lifeguarding is also fantastic training for future employment.  Adult lifeguards have a lot to offer to aquatics programs as well – don’t ever think you are too old to be a lifeguard.  Adults in lifeguarding can help to provide aquatic programs when traditional teenage lifeguards are in school. 

If you or someone you know are interested in being a lifeguard, you don’t have to wait until summer.  Nevada City Parks & Recreation is offering lifeguard training during Fall Break; October 17-21. 

Registration is due September 30th.  Details about the class can be found on Nevada City’s website; Lifeguard Training – Nevada City, CA (
