A true immersion class

Published on May 30, 2017 11:20AM


No sooner has “Baywatch” made its big comeback than the Lincoln City Community Center is hosting a free lifeguard course for folks inspired by The Rock’s aquatic adventures.

The course, offered by the American Red Cross, will run from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday, June 19, through Friday, June 23.

Participants must be at least 15 years old and be able pass a pre-swim test prior to enrollment. The test includes a 300-meter swim, two minutes of treading water and retrieving a 10-pound brick from a depth of seven to 10 feet. The pre-test will take place at 5:30 pm on Monday, June 12.

Lincoln City aquatic staff will instruct the class. Successful completion of the course will lead to Red Cross certification and possible employment opportunities as a lifeguard.

The class is limited to 10 students. For more information or to register, call 541-994-2131 or e-mail cperkins@lincolncity.org.
