How old do you have to be to be a life guard?

Im 14 years old and a girl and I wanna be a lifeguard for my local pool. Am I too young?And I know you have to take a class to be a lifeguard too right?

I believe you have to be 18 and be able to pass the tests. (which are very hard and extensive) A 14 yr old girl cannot lift a full grown unconscience adult out of the water safely. You can however, take a CPR course and a first aid course but don't put your self in danger

I don't think there is an age limit but there is a physical strength requirement for the purpose of being able to save a drowning person

You can become a lifeguard if you have received a certification from a lifeguard training course.

At our town pool its 15. Ask at your local pool as they might have a different age qualification.
