Juneau Pools Update

Juneau loves its pools! From the renovation of the Augustus G. Brown Memorial Pool in downtown Juneau to expanded swim lessons and special activities, CBJ Parks & Recreation is working hard to deliver high-quality facilities and services to our community. While demand has always been high for these programs, more people than ever are eager to get back in the water following the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s an update on what we’re doing to make sure everyone in our community has access to Juneau’s pools and aquatic programs:

Staffing

Like many communities across the country, the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to reduce operations. As a result, we had to lay off nearly all of our part-time employees, including all of our swim instructors and part-time lifeguards. Since resuming normal operations in 2022, we’ve been working hard to rebuild our team of over 100 aquatic professionals in a very challenging labor market. We’ve taken a number of steps to improve recruitment and retention, including:

  • Offering sign-on bonuses of up to $5,000 for difficult-to-fill positions
  • Providing free swim passes to every employee in the Aquatics Division
  • Offering free lifeguard certification courses to prospective employees

Since 2022, we’ve hired *45 new employees. This includes 9 swim instructors, 27 lifeguards and 14 aquatic attendants. *Several employees work more than one position.
