Norman P. Smalley Pool

Norman P. Smalley Pool, located in York Commons Park, offers seasonal aquatic opportunities. 

The District's lifeguard staff is trained under the Starfish Aquatics Starguard Lifeguard Program. The guard staff must complete and pass a 25-hour training program which includes lifeguard rescue skills, emergency procedures and community CPR. The guards must also attend weekly in-service training sessions and participate in surprise simulations. Throughout the season, reviewers from Starfish Aquatics conduct three unannounced visits to audit staff performance.
