Employment

Waterbabies Aquatic Program is always looking for energetic and enthusiastic people who find joy in making a difference in a child’s life. Our rewarding teaching positions are ideal for parents, college students, teachers, or caregivers. We offer paid hands-on training along with extensive personal mentoring by our lead instructors. You may train at one or more of the five locations where we teach, but we make every attempt to place you at the location nearest to where you live.
 

WaterBabies Instructors
(Bellevue, Everett, Kirkland, Renton, Sammamish)
WaterBabies instructors partner with parents in the aquatic education of their child to create a successful water experience. Our goal is to empower parents by teaching them the skills to teach their child to swim. Parents do most of the handling of their child in the water and instructors are there to “coach” parents on the techniques.
 
Requirements: No previous swim instruction experience necessary. We are looking for a reliable, outgoing person with great communication skills who loves children and is comfortable working with parents. You need to have a love of water, reliable transportation, be detail-oriented and able to adapt to different situations easily.
 
WaterKids Instructors
(Bellevue, Renton, Sammamish)
WaterKids instructors work with students to develop a harmonious relationship with the water. They build a strong foundation for the strokes by working through breathing exercises, correct body alignment, building core body strength, and introducing propulsion.
 
Requirements: A minimum of 1 year experience working with children 3-5 yrs. of age; swim instruction background desired but not required for this position as we will train in method and technique. We are looking for someone who is comfortable working with young children, playful yet focused, and confident instructing others. You need to have a love of water, flexible schedule, and reliable transportation.
 
Lifeguards
(Renton Only)
Responsible lifeguards are essential to ensure the safety of patrons of our aquatic facility by preventing and responding to emergencies.
 
Requirements: CPR certified; current certification as Lifeguard by a recognized source of training (American Red Cross preferred). 6+ months of direct experience desired. You need to have reliable transportation, be professional and courteous, and possess the ability to respond calmly and effectively to emergency situations.
