North Kitsap Pool General Staff Info

Mark VanHuis- North Kitsap pool Coordinator.

We strive to maintain a cadre of well trained instructors. Whenever possible, instructors are WSI certified.
Instructors are evaluated by our patrons and management staff regularly. The NK pool’s expectation for swimming lessons is: #1-Safe, #2-Fun, and #3-Educational. The instructors are expected to be caring, supportive, enthusiastic, and encouraging.
All of our lifeguards are certified in First Aid, CPR for the Professional Rescuer, Lifeguarding and Automated External Defibrillation. Guards attend three hours of mandatory inservice training every month. They are also periodically tested with surprise simulations during regular work hours.
