2021 LIFEGUARD CLINICS

The introduction clinics will be held on the following Saturdays: Feb. 6, March 6, April 3, and May 1 from 12 noon to 2 p.m., at the San Antonio Natatorium, 1430 W. Cesar E. Chavez Blvd.  

At the event, applicants can learn more about becoming a lifeguard and meet current lifeguards. Applicants will have access to a computer to complete the on-line application and they are encouraged to take the required prerequisite skills test. 

To complete the skills test, applicants should bring their swimsuits and be prepared to swim 300 yards freestyle and breaststroke, tread water without using their arms for two minutes, as well as retrieve a 10-pound weight from the 13 foot depth and swim across the pool within the allotted time. Practice time and instruction will be available. The skills test can also be scheduled for a later date.  

The department provides Red Cross Certification Training to prepare applicants for their lifeguarding responsibilities. Applicants who have passed the prerequisite test will be scheduled for a Certification Training class.
