SESSION 1 (4 weeks, June 21 - July 15)
Each swim lesson is staffed by a Town of Waterbury certified lifeguard. Each lifeguard holds an American Red Cross (ARC) Lifeguard certification with First Responder First Aid/AED. All swim instruction is overseen by Keith Mckenna, LGI, WSI (Waterbury Pool Director) and additionally supervised by the Director of Parks & Recreation for the town.
Each swim lesson is run by a Town of Waterbury swim instructor. Each instructor either holds a WSI or is supervised by a current WSI. Our lessons use the Learn-To-Swim curriculum from the ARC and is logged with the ARC upon successful completion (or failure) of the lesson. All lifeguards are overseen by Keith Mckenna, LGI, WSI (Waterbury Pool Director) and additionally supervised by the Director of Parks & Recreation for the town.
