Lifeguards – North Fork Pool

Lifeguarding is a fun and challenging job. If you are 15+ years old, you can work as a lifeguard. Red Cross Lifeguard certification is required, so if you are interested in lifeguarding this summer, contact us ASAP so we can direct you to the 4-day course at Bill Heddles over spring break in April. If you are interested, please call us at 970-872-6122 or email Lenore at

Water Safety Instructor (WSI) and WSI Aides – North Fork Pool

Providing swimming lessons is just one of the things we do at the pool. But we can't do it without our teachers and aides. If you are 14+ years old, we can train you to assist with swimming lessons. And if you already have your WSI, we need you this summer! As we determine how COVID-19 will affect this year's protocols, we will have a better view of how lessons will work (last year we had to be hands-off!). If you are interested, please call us at 970-872-6122 or email Lenore at
