La Crosse hiring lifeguards, swim instructors for swimming facilities

Pools are tentatively scheduled to open June 5th

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – La Crosse Parks and Rec is looking for pool staff as they get ready for the summer.

The Department is looking to hire as many as 40 lifeguards, pool attendants and swim instructors.

Pools in La Crosse are set to open June 5th with hours to be determined some time in April.

Parks staff say there are some definite perks to the jobs.

“You get to sit in the sun and sit by the pool summer and work with a community, which I think it really fun,” said La Crosse Parks and Recreation Department recreation coordinator McKenzie Wilson.

Details and application information is available on the Parks department’s webpage.

La Crosse’s beaches will once again not have lifeguards.
