Youth Programs

Churchill County Pool strives to offer recreational safety programs to increase a young swimmer's awareness, swimming ability, and responsiveness around water.

Volunteer Swim Instructors

Youth volunteers are needed to help our swimming lesson program be a success.  Volunteers must be at least 10 years old and love to swim.  This opportunity can help you gain experience while helping others to learn to swim.  You will assist in teaching a level with the skills you know.  This opportunity may lead to other opportunities at Churchill County Pool.  If you love to swim, come help others learn to love swimming too.  Please fill out a volunteer application at Churchill County Pool.
