For the third consecutive year, Cobb County aquatic staff won the Georgia Recreation and Park Association Lifeguard Competition. In 2009 and 2010, a local team won the competition, but this year Cobb managed to excel even more. Every year, the county sends two teams to the competition and this year the Cobb teams tied as co-champions.
The competition consists of seven events that challenge lifeguards in a variety of skills they use on a day-to-day basis. The events were: swim relay, rescue board relay, capture the flag, team triathlon, written test, critical incident scenario and rescue relay.
