We are holding lifeguard certification classes during the upcoming holiday season.  Anyone ages 15 years or older who can meet the following prerequisites, may sign-up to attend the class.  Prerequisites include:  swimming 300 yards continuously while demonstrating breath control and rhythmic breathing; treading water for two minutes using only the legs; completing a timed event within 1 minute and 40 seconds.  This class is open to both members and non-members.  Members receive a reduced rate.  For those who also wish to pursue employment at the YMCA, there is an additional rate reduction to take the certification class. 

Enrollees must plan to attend all four classes to participate.  Classes will take place at the Parkview Huntington Family YMCA pool and are slated for Monday, December 30th and Tuesday December 31st from 10:00am-2:00pm and Thursday, January 2 and Friday, January 3rd from 10:00am -3:00pm.  For more information or questions you may contact Sarah Kowalski, Aquatics Director at
