Pool Management

The SRA pool is committed to hiring trained and professional staff from our local community.  Many of our lifeguards have grown up swimming at the pool!  All staff maintain current certifications and are required to participate in an in-service training activity before the season begins.  

If you or your child (14 years-old or older) is interested in working at SRA this summer, please be in contact with Mark Murray for more information and instructions.
