The Midco® Aquatic Center officially certified 9 individuals with a Lifeguard and CPR certificate that is valid for the next two years. Those in this particular class plan to work for the City of Sioux Falls, their hometown pool, or in a camp setting! Lifeguarding certification is more than just water skills! American Red Cross training focuses on emergency preparedness, water skills, CPR & AED, and first aid training. Remember to thank a lifeguard for all of their hard work becoming trained for this job!

This week we are highlighting our swim instructor, Sam! Sam ONLY teaches swim lessons for Midco® Aquatic Center and does not lifeguard.

Sam is currently majoring in Accounting and Finance. In this field, Sam still feels that being a swim instructor has been helpful. He noted that one professor spoke with him about how effectively Sam gives explanations and his ability to figure out solutions in tough group projects. Both of these skills, Sam attributes to his time as a swim lesson instructor.

Sam became a swim lesson instructor because both his parents taught swim lessons for over 10 years! He saw the connection his parents still had with these families and individuals and wanted that for himself. Sam also knew how important the Recreation Center in his hometown was, and wanted to support it in any way he could. When moving to Sioux Falls, Sam chose to only teach lessons and not lifeguard because he feels it is more rewarding and fits his schedule.

Sam is our “go-to” upper level and adult lesson instructor. These are levels that many instructors don’t always love to tackle; Sam, however, loves teaching these levels because he enjoys the different challenges and adaptations needed for older participants that have a different relationship with the water.

Thank you to our Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor of the week, Colby! While Colby only joined our staff in September of 2023, he came on with 5 years of lifeguarding experience. He became a lifeguard because of his desire to help people - and decided to come to Midco® Aquatic Center because it was close to his college campus. Colby said that his first visit to Midco Aquatic Center showed him how much kindness ran through the staff here and he knew he should join us. In his five years lifeguarding Colby has become better at talking to all ages of people. Colby wants to work in the publishing industry and someday become an author. With that being said, it should be no surprise that his favorite hobby is reading! If you see Colby, give him a book recommendation and thank him for all of his hard work at the Midco Aquatic Center!

Leah is our Friday Feature this month at the Midco® Aquatic Center! Leah has always loved swimming and being at the pool. She decided to become a lifeguard in order to bring the joy she felt at the pool to her community. Due to her love of water and desire to reach the community, Leah became a Water Safety Instructor shortly after becoming lifeguard certified. She is a staple instructor in our swim lesson program. Outside of work, Leah loves to read all genres of books. When asked what she would like to be when she grows up, Leah responded, "Happy!" If you see Leah please thank her for all of her dedication to our community!
