Parks and Recreation Department to host
several Lifeguard Introduction Clinics.
Residents of all ages, who are looking for a rewarding job with great pay, are invited to apply to serve their community as a lifeguard for the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department.
The introduction clinics will be held on the following Saturdays from 2-4 p.m. at the San Antonio Natatorium, 1430 W. Cesar E. Chavez Blvd.
At the clinic, applicants can learn more about becoming a lifeguard and meet current lifeguards. Applicants will have access to a computer to complete the online application and they are encouraged to take the required prerequisite skills test. To complete the 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 CPR and lifesaving training to prepare applicants for their lifeguarding responsibilities. Applicants who have passed the prerequisite test will be scheduled for training classes. The starting lifeguard salary is $9.02 per hour.
For more information on the introduction clinics, lifeguard positions or pool hours of operation, call 207-3299.San Antonio children invited to enjoy
Underwater Egg Hunt Flier (PDF)
Children, ages 5 to 12, are invited to enjoy a one-of-a-kind underwater egg hunt offered by the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department. A family inner tube race, spoon and egg race, and a creative straw craft are among the activities offered during the Underwater Eggstravaganza. As always, hundreds of colorful eggs, some designated for special prizes, will be tossed into the pool for an exciting hunt!
The event will be held at the San Antonio Natatorium, 1430 W. Cesar Chavez, on Saturday, March 21, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Children will be divided into three age groups. Five and 6 year olds hunting for eggs in the baby pool at 10 and 11:30 a.m. Children, ages 7 to 9, will hunt in the main pool at 10:30 a.m. and 12 noon. Ten to 12 year olds can join in on the fun in the main pool at 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. All participants will receive a prize.
Lifeguards and staff members will oversee each hunt. Participants must wear proper swim attire (no denim please). Children must be able to swim on their own without the use of flotation devices. Participants are asked to register for the egg hunt in advance at the Natatorium or on the day of the event. The cost is $2 per child.
