Did you know the YMCA of Southwestern Indiana trains more lifeguards than any other local organization? We take safety around water very seriously to ensure that everyone can enjoy a splash of fun in the water.

Participants must be 15 years of age on or before the final scheduled session of the course. There is a $50 non-refundable registration fee that will be applied towards the class fee if the participant passes the pre-course session.
