The Kokomo Parks & Recreation Department will host open tryouts for Kokomo Beach lifeguards at the Kokomo High School pool, 2501 S. Berkley Road, April 26 beginning at 8 a.m. and again May 10 beginning at noon.
All lifeguards are required to be certified in lifeguarding, first aid and CPR-PR/AED. These courses are offered at the YMCA. Contact the YMCA at 765-457-4447 for more information.
Those trying out for lifeguard positions will need a bathing suit and towel because there will be both a water test and a written test. Lifeguards must be at least 16 years of age by May 24.
