Lifeguard Team

Peter Hunt, Lead Lifeguard was certified in May of 2016 at the Marinwood Pool. For the last 2 summers, Pete has guarded at the Marin Country Club, and worked part time guarding for Boy Scouts of America, Marin Council, and Rickey’s Restaurant. For Peter, safety is the number responsibility of guards. He focuses on recognizing guards should be attentive, decisive, and calm. Secondly, as a result of working at the country club, hospitality is a guard’s second most important responsibility. Guards are here to make sure that the patrons are well taken care of – by keeping them safe and facilitating to their needs.

Marilynn Hunt was certified in 2016. This year will be her second year lifeguarding. She enjoys spending time outside focusing on keeping people safe. Her philosophy is to offer a safe, fun atmosphere  while maintaining a  level of responsibility as a lifeguard.
