Swim Macon is now a Starguard Lifeguard Training Center.  We provide training for new lifeguards as well as renewal training.  We will accept your Red Cross certification to allow you to take the renewal training.  You must provide your Red Cross certification details.
LIFEGUARD APPLICANTS MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM 300 YARDS UNASSISTED by swimming Freestyle (front crawl), breast stroke, or a combination of both. This class will not teach candidates how to swim. Non-swimmers are ineligible to take lifeguard training at Swim Macon.
New certifications take two 8-hour days. Renewal training is completed in one 8-hour day.  Starguard requires annual renewal of your Starguard Lifeguard Certification.

We will not break up training based on schedule conflicts. Candidates must take the full class on the weekend it is given, unless discussed with Mary in advance of the first day of class. Exceptions are up to the discretion of the trainer and will be decided on a case by case basis.
