Volunteer Lifeguards Needed

West Point Community, we need you! In order to establish a Noontime Lap Swimming program at Crandall Pool in Arvin CPDC, West Point MWR is seeking volunteers to serve as lifeguards.

Current certified lifeguards are preferred but free Red Cross Lifeguard Training** is available.

Volunteer Hours are Monday – Friday, 1200 – 1345.

All volunteers must have a valid DOD ID Card.

For more information or to volunteer today, please email WestPointSFA@army.mil or call 845-938-7060.

 

**Prerequisites for Free Red Cross Lifeguard Course:
Candidates must:
1.) Be at least 18 years old.
2.) Swim 300 yards, continuously demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing. Candidates may swim using the front crawl, breaststroke, or a combination of both, but swimming on the back or side is not allowed. Swim goggles may be used.

Candidates should place their hands under the armpits.

    c.) Return to the surface and swim 20 yards on the back to return to the starting point with both hands holding the object and keeping the face at or near the surface so they are able to get a breath.
