Prospective candidates must be at least 16 years old on or before June 1. Additional qualifications are required and can be found online at www.volusia.org/lifeguard.

More tryouts are scheduled throughout March 2024, each from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on:
• March 9 – Port Orange YMCA, 4701 City Center Parkway
• March 16 – Ormond Beach YMCA

Once prospects pass the initial swim tryout, they will attend one of two recruit classes.

Successful completion of the class, background check, physical, and drug screening are all conditions for hire. A $750 recruit sign-on bonus awaits those who fulfill the recruit class requirements, with an additional $1,000 bonus available for those committing to a specified number of days during the beach season.
