Unfortunately, lack of available lifeguard staff through
the City of Two Rivers Parks and Recreation Department has led to
cancellation of the Two Rivers classes and open pool sessions for

The Two Rivers NEWP classes are held at the Two
River High School from January through March as shown to the right.

p.m. followed by pool time from 7:30 - 9:00 p.m. Participants must
be at least 12 years of age; participants ages 12 - 15 must be
accompanied by an adult. Participants will need swim wear, aqua
socks or appropriate footwear. A synthetic t-shirt or lightweight
neoprene is optional for comfort in the pool. Boats, paddles and
all other gear required for the class are provided by the North

Class participants are invited to participate in Student Outings
