Medfield Parks & Recreation will be offering a LIFEGUARD TRAINING program this fall at the Dedham Recreation Pool. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone that would be looking for a summer job at Hinkley Pond this summer. 


Each student will be taught the skills required to recognize and deal with an aquatic emergency. Students will be required to swim 300 yards of both the freestyle and breast stroke. Students also will be required to complete lifesaving skills required of the training such as CPR, First Aid and AED. Both pool and classroom time are required each day, and attendance at both days is MANDATORY.

There will be homework between the first class and the second class, which will include watching specific videos online, which will be provided by the instructor. This work must be completed in order to be ready for the second class.
 

Students should come prepared to be in the water each day, including wearing a bathing suit and towel.

We are offering this year's course at a special rate (25% cheaper than last year)! Successful candidates will have the opportunity to interview for a position as a lifeguard at Hinkley this summer. All lifeguards must be at least 16 years old to work this summer.


Upon completion, you will receive your Red Cross Lifeguard Certification.

2019 Fall schedule:
Saturday, Oct. 26: 10am-6pm
Saturday, Nov. 2: 10am-6pm

Exam will take place on Nov. 2
