    Dear Swim Team Participant,

    Montgomery Village Foundation is looking for an
    outstanding candidates to join our lifeguard team for the 2021 summer
    season. Montgomery Village provide professional, team oriented
    environment with competitive pay and opportunities to gain
    experience and advance in the field. Candidates for the lifeguard
    position must have current
    American Red Cross Lifeguarding and CPR/AED/PR and First Aid
    Certificate. Students must be 15 years old by the last day of the course
    (proof of age required) and pass a pre-screen test (300 yard continuous
    swim with rhythmic breathing using front crawl
    or breast stroke, 10 lbs. brick retrieval within one minute forty
    seconds and tread water using legs only for two minutes).

    Due to Covid-19 pandemic and various restrictions, finding lifeguard class is a challenge this year.
    Montgomery Village Foundation is not able to co-teach classes due to
    gathering limits. We are planning to hold lifeguard training
    at Stedwick Pool sometime in late April. Yes, it might be bit cold.
    Good news is, that our lifeguard training partner –
    City of Rockville just schedule few lifeguard classes. If you are available to take the class, I would
    strongly recommend that you sign up ASAP. Due to gathering limits, only 9 participants can register for each class.
