Lifeguard of the Week

Our team of Morris Memorial Pool Lifeguards consists of 28 motivated young adults dedicated to keeping Morris Memorial Pool clean and safe. Our lifeguards keep patrons safe by enforcing rules and regulations, keep the facility clean on their breaks, teach swim lessons and lead water aerobics. 

Lifeguards at Morris Memorial Pool undergo over 28 hours of American Red Cross training in water skills, CPR, First Aid and more prior to the season beginning. During the season our guards participate in mandatory conditioning and training sessions every week. If you are interested in becoming a lifeguard at Morris Memorial Pool, please visit our "Current Job Openings" page.
