Summer lifeguard positions are available with Clarksville Parks + Recreation at the city’s three outdoor pools: Beachaven, Swan Lake, and New Providence.

Make this summer count! Earn $8.00 an hour, feel a sense of pride working in an important position, and make new friends amongst co-workers all while making a difference in your community.

Applicants must be at least 15 years of age and able to pass a swim test that consists of swimming 300 yards continuously, treading water for two minutes without the use of arms or hands and successfully completing a timed event within 1 minute and 40 seconds. Apply in-person and take your swim test at the New Providence Indoor Aquatic Center, located at 166 Cunningham Lane. Training and certification is available.

To better prepare those interested in becoming a lifeguard, the Indoor Aquatic Center will host training sessions from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the following Saturdays: April 16, 23 and May 7. The training camp will help participants build stamina in preparation for the swim test. There is no cost to attend the training camp other than the General Admission fee ($5.00).
