Needless to say this year is different and we don’t need to tell you why. Despite the uncertainty of pool and open water availability, we have decided that the best approach is to proceed as usual with our BAM open water preparations and protocol.
In the event that the Boulder Reservoir and pools reopen, BAM will be prepared and ready to go!
There is also a possibility that volunteer BAM Lifeguards could be used at some of the Boulder outdoor pools. This means that volunteering as a certified Lifeguard may mean that those that prefer not to work so early might have an opportunity to volunteer at the pools during the day or evening. At this point, nothing is confirmed with Boulder pools about using BAM Lifeguards but, we want to have this as possibility for our community and for our swimmers.
As such BAM, is looking for volunteers to take our certified Lifeguard and CPR training classes.
Before one signs up please be aware of the following:
The training takes time and dedication
You must be prepared to sign up for at least 5 shifts throughout the summer (and maybe more)
You must be 100% dedicated and reliable
You might be called to guard at a pool or at the reservoir (we are planning for both)
You must possess superhero qualities...;)
If you feel like you fit the description and you are willing to help BAM and the swim community make the best of these challenging times please email me to sign up at email@example.com Training dates are still in the works but will be announced shortly and will take place in the next few weeks.
If you got certified with BAM last year and wish to volunteer again this summer please email me as well at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can add you to the list.

As our bodies change with age and injury, our fitness and performance in the pool is ever evolving. Let’s start a conversation and feel and swim the best we can…..
