Aquatic Fitness Classes

Lifeguard Course
The City of Bedford is looking for individuals to fill both our lifeguard vacancies as well as our lifeguard course. Our lifeguard course will provide quality instruction to our students with up-to-date equipment, education, and resources provided by the American Red Cross. Those registered for our course and unsure about their swimming abilities are invited to participate in an optional day beforehand to practice the skills necessary to pass the course pre-requisite and receive tips and tricks on easier ways to proceed. If after that point participants feel lifeguarding is not for them, they remain eligible to receive a full refund of the course fee. Prior to the course beginning, students will receive a course syllabus detailing course locations and each day’s activities. Registrations are being accepted now at the Boys Ranch Activity Center.
