Lifeguard Training

The primary purpose of the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course is to provide entry-level lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide professional-level care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services (EMS) personnel take over. This program offers a choice of Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED courses to meet the various training needs of a diverse audience.

Family Open Swim & Water Park

Please take a couple of minutes to review our Family Open Swim rules and guidelines before joining our lifeguards on deck. Reviewing these rules helps you and Kroc Staff maintain a safe space in and around the water.

  1. Running is not permitted: Please always remind your children to walk to, from, and around the pool; walking is the best way to prevent slips, trips, or falls.

  2. All swim types and ages welcomed: We want to keep Family Open Swim a safe and appropriate space for everyone. Please use this time to use and share the pool space recreationally; this time is not intended for vigorous water exercise or lap swimming.

  3. Age Guidelines Must Be Followed: Children under 6 must be accompanied by an adult in the water. If the guardian cannot enter the water for any reason, they must remain at the pool edge within arm’s reach of the child.

An adult must closely supervise anyone wearing a flotation device.

  5. No Diving in the pool headfirst: The Water Park Pool does not have an area deep enough to dive headfirst safely. During Open Swim, children can jump in the designated areas. Lifeguards are responsible for monitoring and enforcing rules in these areas.

  6. Water Toy Usage: You are welcome to bring in your own small plastic toys and use them with a guardian present. Toys are at the discretion of the lifeguards.

  7. No Kickboards, Snorkels, or Fins: Due to the increased volume of people in the pool during family open swim and water park hours, these items offer up a potential hazard we would like to avoid.
