For the sale of season passes, the family is defined as the legally related family unit (usually the mother, father, and dependent children of a marriage). If there are any questions about the family unit, they should be directed to the pool manager, Rance Massengill.
The season pass is non-transferable, and the money for the pass is non-refundable. Pass holders must show their pass at the pool gate when entering the pool area. Additional identification may be required at the gate. Pool passes are good for all swimming hours and may be purchased at the window from the pool manager.
The American Red Cross Lifeguard class certifies students as lifeguards
for two years. This class also includes certification for CPR for
the Professional Rescuer. This class teaches students how to
recognize and respond to emergencies related to water safety.
Successful completion of this course ensures lifeguard certification;
however, it does not guarantee summer employment as a lifeguard.
Students should come prepared to swim and should bring clothes to wear on the pool deck. (The swimming pool is an outdoor pool and can be cold at night.) An extra set of clothing is recommended for changing into for classroom sessions.
The course has the following prerequisites: students must be at least 15 years old, in good physical condition, able to swim 500 yards without stopping, able to swim freestyle, breast stroke, sidestroke, able to retrieve a 10lb. brick from 7ft. water, and able to tread water without hands for two minutes. Students must complete the prerequisite swim and exercises on the scheduled date in order to be issued a seat in the course.
Please contact Rance Massengill at 850-718-2440 if you have any questions regarding lifeguard certification. In order to be registered in the course, course fees must be paid; otherwise, you will not be considered a registered member of the course.
