WE TEACH SKILLS THAT SAVE LIVES
Lifeguards learn not only valuable skills such as CPR and in-water rescue, but they also develop leadership qualities, team-building skills, and improved self-confidence. The Salina Family YMCA has year-round openings for lifeguards for both our Family and Lap Pools. If that sounds like a challenge you would enjoy, sign up for training classes today!
