Volunteer Needed: Lifeguarding Coordinator Position

Once a year, the Varsity Swim Boosters sponsor a Lifeguarding Course through the Red Cross.  This is our 2nd largest

Fundraiser and usually gives us a nice start for the following season.  The coordinator is essential to run a smooth class.


*Liason between the students and the instructors
*Maintains records to invite former students to get recertified every 2 years

*Responsible for advertising of the program (social media, South Hills Record, sending forms to other school districts, etc)

*Provides meals for the students twice during the program, which lasts 31 hours over 2 weekends


No knowledge of Lifeguarding or CPR is necessary to run the program.  This is my 4th year and I still ask Coach Kim questions all of the time.  Good organizational skills are necessary, however.  The bulk of the work is the week we start advertising and sending out recertification letters, which is now. If you are interested, please contact Beth Fowler,
