We have resorted to offering lifeguard classes basically free of charge, except they pay the Red Cross fee, if we can offer it at our outdoor pool. We did this last year and got 10 new guards because they didn’t have to pay the class fee ($200) at another place in town. This year with Memorial Day being so late, and our schools should still be out before that I am going to lean to this again, and teach it the week before or of Memorial Day. I have also decided that if I have to rent an indoor pool I will pass along that fee to them as well, which I won’t teach a class at the rented pool for less than 6 students so their fee would be max $100. Hope this helps!
