About Splash Island Lifeguards
We are a part of the most professional and well-trained aquatic staff in the country. Together with Jeff Ellis and Associates we continue to strive for excellence by constantly seeking out the best possible candidates for the Lifeguard role. Flexibility and multitasking skills are essential to the success of the facility. As a lifeguard you will be able to participate in programs, more than just lifeguarding. You will get a chance to teach swim lessons, work special events at the facility and other additional aquatic and recreational programs. We strive for excellence and will not accept anything less than that. Our performance goal for everyone at the facility, including lifeguards is 100 percent, 100 percent of the time.

You can expect to be tired and sore at the end of the weekend. As stated in the Before Training section, the training will consist of 4-5 hours on a Friday night and 8-9 hours on both Saturday and Sunday.
You can expect to learn all the skills necessary to be a professional lifeguard and understand all the commitments required for the position.
You can expect to meet all the management team and get to know a little more about them and their specific roles at the Aquatic Facility.
You can expect to meet new friends from outside of your school/ town.
You can expect to be able to ask questions in an open and friendly environment....We promise we are not scary!
Some basic training pieces you will have to be able to do are: Swim 200 yards, tread for 2 minutes without hands, get a 10 pound brick from 12 feet of water, all responsive and unresponsive saves, CPR, Rescue Breathing and the Heimlich Maneuver just to name a few.
Many current and former lifeguards claim that they would not be who they are today, both personally and professionally, if they had not guarded each summer at Splash Island. As a lifeguard for Plainfield Parks and Recreation, you will continue to learn new methods of saving lives, develop your problem solving and decision-making abilities, and practice excellent customer service for our guests' best experience, and develop life-long friendships.
