If you want the ideal summer job that can provide you that “beach buff” tan you have always looked for, lets you enjoy the outdoors and being around water, and allow you to help others to have fun, then a job staffing the “Splash Cove” as lifeguard for the City of Williamsport, might be the job for you. There are still plenty of these jobs available.
The Splash Cove Pool at Memorial Park will be opening for Memorial Day Weekend this year, if the City is able to overcome the current staffing shortage.
“Splash Cove is Williamsport’s only remaining Community Pool, yet we are still struggling to find enough lifeguards to adequately staff the pool for the summer,” said Jess Novinger, Director of Recreation. “The City will offer lifeguard certification and re-certification courses for those interested in lifeguarding that may not have had the opportunity to previously take the course.”
This staffing shortage is the only thing holding back Splash Cove from opening on time this season.
The City’s Streets and Parks crew has worked tirelessly to keep up with continued improvements to Splash Cove, including scrubbing and repainting the entire pool surface, updating electrical and adding new safety markings. The goal is to have Splash Cove open to the public and fully staffed by Memorial Day Weekend. The plan is to have the pool be open the weekend of June 2 and 3 and then open for daily operations effective June 9.
Daily operating hours will be from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. with adult swim, for those 18 and older, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Season passes and daily admission rates will remain the same as last year.
