Parent Resource to Guard for Life

Everything you need to know as a parent of a teen interested in lifeguarding or working with American Pool. 

Now is the perfect time to take advantage of the extra time spent at home to learn more about Guard for Life and the job and training opportunities we have available for your teen! We have modified our hiring and training process to be accessible from the comfort of your own home, so there’s no reason to wait!

As a company that has built its culture around safety, the safety of you and your family, our staff and pool users is our top priority, which is why we have modified how we are approaching the 2020 pool season. We understand how important it is to remain safe during these difficult times and you can rest assured that we won’t be opening pool gates until we have permission from health authorities and made any necessary accommodations for our staff and pool users.
