*EPRC will pay for your Lifeguard Training class if you want to work for Eagle Pointe this summer. See the requirements below.


  • You must show that you meet the prerequisites to a swim coach at Eagle Pointe prior to signing up for this class.
  • After passing prerequisites and paying for class in full, you will be emailed access to the home study materials.
  • After completing the online portion of the course, print the certificate of completion and bring it with you to class. (Or you can email the certificate to the class instructor if you do not have access to a printer.)
  • Attend all in-person sessions.

Click here to sign up. Please print the information form and bring the signed permission slip along with a check/money order to the aquatics department.

After the swimming requirements are met and you've paid for your class, you will be issued your book and study materials. It is strongly recommended that you study the material and practice the prerequisites because you will have to swim them at the deepwater pool to pass the course. Private Swim Instructors are available if you need help developing your swimming. Visit our Private Swim Lessons page for info & booking lessons.
