LifeGuard/Aquatics Instructor I

YMCA McGrath Center

As a Lifeguard/Aquatics  Instructor I I have the responsibilities of both ensuring the safety of patrons on the pool deck and also teaching patrons water safety and stroke development. Being a duel job, I constantly have to change from guarding and teaching and assume the different requirements and responsibilities. As an instructor I have to meet certain requirements with each student as described by their skill level as well as teaching them the four main ideas of the YMCA, Respect, Caring, Honesty and Responsibility. The instruction provided is not just the ability to swim, but also teaching water safety and comfort. As a lifeguard I am responsible for ensuring safe practices in the pool as well as performing rescues and ensuring that there is a safe chemical balance in the pool.

     During my athletic career at Valhalla I had made Varsity in both Water Polo and Swim during my sophomore year. During my Junior year I was not able to play water polo as I was taking three AP courses and had to make a choice between the two commitments. Instead of sports that season I had searched for work experience where I had found my first job at Brody's Burgers and Beer. 


Interests and Community Service

As of yet I do not have much experience in community service, but I am actively searching for community service opportunities. As well as applying for community positions I am currently applying for internship positions at local law firms.
