What is the Lifeguard Training Team?

LTTThe Lifeguard Training Team is a FREE program, designed to train and certify Seattle’s youth in lifesaving skills. The eight week program for youth ages 15-17 years old is designed to train participants to be lifeguards and build other job skills. Seattle Parks and Recreation provides training, books, uniforms, and basic materials at no charge. Participants get the opportunity to test for certification at the end of the program. This is your first step towards employment as a lifeguard!

The Lifeguard Training Team is a tremendous opportunity for you to learn and grow,  to build lasting friendships, and to acquire skills you’ll use for the rest of your life.

LTTYou don’t have to be an Olympic athlete or world class swimmer to join.  We just ask that you try your hardest, participate every day, and be part of the team.  The instructors’ provide a safe, well supervised and encouraging environment.  The safety of the participants is our #1 priority

As the next step towards aquatic employment, successful completion of this program opens up a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the year at our indoor pools.  Continue to build your lifeguarding resume by learning to teach swim lessons and water exercise classes, all while earning service learning credits.
