Lifeguarding Jobs in the Atlanta Area

I've had a great time working for SwimAtlanta!”

Both as a lifeguard and as a pool manager I have enjoyed working with my peers and the pool goers each summer.  It has been a great opportunity to learn teamwork and leadership skills while working at the pools.  Lifeguarding has been an exciting experience.
