Lifeguard Recruitment Event

Katelman Pool

The City of Council Bluffs is hoping to open both Katelman Water Park and Pirate Cove Water Park on Saturday, May 29, but a lack of lifeguard applications leaves pool staff concerned. 

“As it stands now, we are concerned we won’t have enough lifeguards to open the pools,” said Mike Bond, Aquatics Director for the City of Council Bluffs.

In response to the shortage of applications, the City of Council Bluffs is hosting a Lifeguard Recruitment Event on Saturday, May 8, from 9 a.m. to noon at Pirate Cove Water Park. Anyone interested in lifeguarding, regardless of certifications, is encouraged to attend. Supervisors will be present to conduct on-the-spot interviews. Applications can be completed on-site, but it is recommended that interested candidates apply online as soon as possible. 

“If we don’t have enough lifeguards to open both pools, we will only open one pool, and we would be forced to limit hours and services and potentially turn people away,” said Bond. “We hope to have a great turnout at the recruitment event and then help new lifeguards get certified.”

The Parks and Recreation Department will host a lifeguard certification course in mid-May for new lifeguards. Course details coming soon. 

Lifeguard applications can be completed online at
