Today's aquatic directors and managers face a range of challenges, along with an ever-evolving industry. The Aquatics Accelerator Program provides comprehensive training offering the best practices to deal with these challenges and position leaders for success.

In today's competitive environment, aquatics professionals need to upgrade their knowledge and skills to stay current on the latest trends and resources available.

The Aquatics Accelerator Program Is Ideal For Aquatics Directors and Managers

Today's industry demands more than just aquatics knowledge. Managers, directors, and instructors who are serious about their careers need to understand that communication, people management, and change management provide a competitive advantage to keep them ahead of the curve.

The Aquatics Accelerator Program equips aquatic professionals with these essential skills. Participants learn to identify their strengths and challenges while gaining new perspectives on how other leaders approach issues. At the same time, they develop proven strategies for retaining top talent and ensuring alignment around priorities while remaining highly adaptable to change.

This program offers aquatic professionals powerful peer networking opportunities through dynamic group sharing sessions. Participants can share best practices, lessons learned, and ideas for making positive changes in their organizations.

Finally, An Effective System To Help You Recruit Lifeguards

If you're like most organizations, your pool and water park needs a staff of at least one lifeguard on duty at all times. That means if the pool is open from 9-5 Monday through Friday, there must be a guard present from 9 AM to 5 PM—even if no one is swimming.

Lifeguards must be certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and First Aid, possess strong swimming skills, have working knowledge of water safety practices , be attentive to details, manage people in emergencies , and be dependable . 

Many organizations also offer competitive salaries to attract the best candidates. Many aquatic directors say they still struggle to hire enough qualified applicants despite these efforts. On top of that, turnover rates for part-time positions are usually high—which means you're constantly recruiting new employees.

Fortunately, the Aquatics Accelerator Program (AAP) can help. Our team developed the AAP at Aquatics Today under the leadership of Jamal Hill, an industry leader and 10x Time Paralympic Champion, to help organizations recruit and train new lifeguards at half the cost of traditional means—without sacrificing quality or safety.

Traditional hiring methods like newspaper ads, flyers posted in locker rooms, and social media posts are costly and don't work well for most institutions.

The AAP dramatically reduces recruitment time with a systematic process that allows you to identify qualified candidates more quickly using our proprietary systems you will be licensed to use once if your organization is accepted into the program.
