About the Centre
Doveton Pool in the Park is an important community facility constructed in 1968, managed by the YMCA Victoria in partnership with the City of Casey. Open the months of December to the end of March, Doveton offers an outdoor pool facility hosting a 50 metre pool, program pool, toddler pool, splash park and giant water slide. In February the facility is used by many schools from the surrounds for school swimming carnivals.
Key Elements of the Role
Pool Lifeguards at YMCA facilities take on a much greater responsibility than simply supervising water space. As well as identifying potential risk factors and taking steps to reduce those risks, lifeguards will act as positive role models in an effort to build strong people, strong families and strong communities within the facilities that we manage.
