WE APPRECIATE OUR GUARDS! Our lifeguards work hard all season and deserve to be celebrated. Long hours spent under the sun patrolling the pool calls for much needed recognition. Every year at American Pool, we host Lifeguard Appreciation Week in celebration of YOU, our lifeguards. This year the celebrations will begin on July 21 and continue through July 28. We can’t wait to show you how much you mean to us!
During Lifeguard Appreciation Week, our offices host events like pizza parties, ice cream socials, and movie nights. In addition to the special events that each office hosts, we also have raffles and awesome giveaway prizes! This is our way of saying THANK YOU for your hard work.
In preparation for the festivities, we held a t-shirt design contest where guards created and submitted design ideas for this year’s official Lifeguard Appreciation Week t-shirt! We received so many amazing designs, and we are proud to announce that the winner of the contest is Zoey C. from our Houston office! We loved Zoey’s cool shark design so much that we wanted to learn a little more about her.
