Staff Testimonial

I have worked as a lifeguard at a pool for 5 years before deciding to work as a lifeguard for Barracudas and I do not regret my decision. I have loved my new job, I get up every morning looking forward to the day. There's always something to do, it's fun for you as well as the kids, I've loved it and can't wait to go back. Thank you!
