Lifeguard certification class in Grass Valley

Submitted to The Union

Nevada City Parks & Recreation and Northern Sierra Swimming are partnering to offer lifeguard training to anyone who is at least 15 years old, is a strong swimmer, enjoys working with children and is able to work outdoors.

Lifeguarding is a rewarding job as well as great training for future employment. Lifeguards learn about professionalism, decision making, teamwork, leadership, customer service, and most importantly, how to save lives. The American Red Cross Lifeguard Course will be offered during spring break (March 26 through 30) at Memorial Park Pool in Grass Valley. Registration and fees are due March 12. Details about the class can be found on Nevada City’s website at
