Austin Lifeguard for Hire Service
It’s smart to hire a lifeguard for a party, and we’re the company to help you make your next pool party in Austin the safest possible.
We work in many Southwest cities, with the aim of truly preventing many of the drownings and near-drowning accidents that are common in unsupervised swimming pools.
Your next water gathering should be fun and carefree. Without a lifeguard on duty, though, it could quickly become a tragedy. Drownings and poolside injuries are more common than you might think. It’s estimated that 10 people drown in the United States each day. More than one in five of these victims are children under the age of 12. Whether you’re hosting a birthday party or a backyard barbecue, hiring a lifeguard for your next event is the best way to make your pool party in Austin the safest possible.
We are the largest private lifeguard service in the country and locally serve the Austin TX Metro area with a dedicated staff. Each of our lifeguard jobs in Austin is filled by an individual who is well qualified, experienced, and certified.
Price for up to 3 hours is $179 per lifeguard. Over 3 hours add $25/half hour per lifeguard. Feel free to keep the guards over your original booking time pending their schedule. Our office will bill you. The booking form on the next page will easily calculate your cost based on your party length and amount of lifeguards. We’re a cheap alternative to an accident. Just recently, one guard made 4 rescues to children at a busy party. Think their parents thought he was worth it?

Yumi and Jere were wonderful lifeguards when they guarded our end of year pool party on Wednesday June 11 from 11-2. They were in touch with me, were on time and prepared, and were very responsible and knowledgeable. I was so happy to be able to put two adults in charge of our fourth grade class party.
Based on my experience with Yumi Temple and her cohort Jere, I would highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. So happy we used your business.
Hi Jenn.. wow today was really scary. I had to use my first aid skills on my mom! We work at the same preschool & she had an allergic reaction & went into shock! I did everything I remembered until the paramedics came.. I really can’t thank you enough for teaching me everything I needed to know!
Everything about my experience with Happy Swimmers has been amazing! From the scheduling to the fantastic teacher they sent for my 5 and 6 year old. The instructor, Emma, had to contend with 2 very different personalities along with 2 different levels of swimming experience. She was more than equipped to deal with that and gave each child unparalleled support, encouragement and instruction. I highly recommend this service to all parents that want to give their child a great experience in being water safe!
We have three kids ages 7, 4, and 2 & 1/2. This was our second year having Happy Swimmers, with instructor Trisha Commons, come teach our kids (the two oldest) to swim. I tried another company the year before I tried Happy Swimmers and although the kids learned swim safety, they were bored and did not learn how to enjoy the pool. Trisha got our son, who did not really like swimming, having fun and by the end of last year could swim the entire length of the pool on his own.
Trisha is great with the kids and is flexible in her teaching style to work with different personalities. She is able to get the kids confident in their abilities and teaches them how to swim, but also teaches them how to have fun! I will definitely be asking Happy Swimmers and Trisha to teach the kids again next year.
I have a toddler and a pool and wanted to make sure my son learned water safety. After taking some group classes last summer, I knew I wanted more one-on-one attention at our home. This summer I reviewed several in-home companies and was impressed with Happy Swimmers approach of water safety.
Trish worked with my stubborn 2-yr old 2-3 times a week. Within the first lesson he knew how to climb out of the pool and to ask permission before getting in. Although our goal was to get him water comfortable more than “swimming”, he indeed learned to swim within a few weeks. We extended our lessons and really appreciated Trish’s approach. We will sign up again next summer. Many of our friends with children happened to be present on several lessons and I expect they will also sign up next summer as well.
Hired a happy swimmers for private life guard for a party for over 200 people at my house. The lifeguard was great. She called to confirm before, came on time, and stayed later then we originally signed up because the party went over. She also showed up on time despite there being a black out that because of storms the day before. I highly recommend Happy Swimmers.

I am Water Safety Instructor certified, have been teaching swim lessons for about a year, and absolutely love helping others learn to swim! I swim competitively for the national group on my club team, my varsity high school team, and will be swimming Division 1 in college next year. This background helps me teach lessons to people of all ages and skill levels.
I have been lifeguarding for a year, and I have loved every minute of it. Because I enjoy the pool so much, it feels great to know that I am allowing others to have the same experience by creating a safe yet fun environment. When guarding, I am always on the lookout to prevent problems before they occur.
I serve the Austin communities of Austin proper, Leander, Cedar Park, Round Rock
I have been lifeguarding for what is now my 3rd summer season. I have lifeguarded from private community pools, back yard parties, to even city communal pools. I love being able to hold myself to a high standard of safety and professionalism. Lifeguarding for me is fun because I get to be outdoors while providing a very essential service, that I find myself to be very skilled at.
I serve the Austin communities of Circle C, Shady Hollow, Terry Town, etc. Just anywhere around Austin
Hi, my name is Chris Perks. I’ve been swimming competitively for 9 years and have 2 years lifeguarding experience with CPR, AED, and first-aid certification.
I love ending my day at work knowing I created a safe and enjoyable pool environment. I have lifeguarded at various sized parties (even exceeding over 120 swimmers) and a wide variety of events. I believe a great lifeguard realizes the situation before it happens and takes action to prevent any situation from getting worse.
My composure under stress and observance resulted in the 5 rescues I had my first week as a guard (including saving 2 toddlers at once)!
I serve the Austin communities of Round Rock, Austin, Cedar Park, Leander, among others.
Hello! My name is Chris Roper and this will be my fourth year of lifeguarding. I love to lifeguard because I enjoy spending time in the sunshine, meeting new people and keeping those around me safe. I will be attending UT Austin in the fall, double majoring in Plan II and Business Honors. Hook ’em!
I worked countless hours lifeguarding last year and love being outside keeping those around me safe. I swam on my summer league swim team for nine years. My hobbies include playing volleyball with friends, practicing my cello and playing football for my school, Churchill High School in San Antonio.

I am fairly new to guarding, but I am dedicated to keeping families safe so they can enjoy their parties. At the private events I have guarded, I have kept kids of various ages safe, both in and out of the pool, while still interacting and letting them have fun. I enjoy seeing how much fun the kids have and being a part of it. I am a year-round athlete, have completed several triathlons, and have been swimming since before I could even stand.
I serve the Austin communities of Austin proper, Buda, Westlake, Dripping Springs, among others.
To me lifeguarding is less of a job, and more of a responsibility to care for other people. I have been lifeguarding for the past 4 years now, and in my time guarding I have learned a few things. The meaning of hard work, customer service, and above all the importance our job titles carry. To literally guard lives. I love my job, and I love helping people. It is my goal that everyone enjoys their time in the water, while all the while remaining safe.
I serve the Austin area communities of Austin, San Antonio, Houston

As well as a lifeguard I am currently a student at Texas State studying Business Management. My goal for lifeguarding is to promote a safe and fun environment around the pool while minimizing any risks for accidents before they happen.

I have 2 years Swim Instruction, Coaching, & lifeguard experience.
As a swim instructor, I teach kids to not only learn how to swim but to love swimming. I want them to be safe in the water and not depend on anyone else to help them. What I enjoy most about teaching anyone how to swim is seeing their progress and seeing them start to really love swimming and enjoy being in water. I love taking a kid who was originally scared and timid in the water and getting them to absolutely love swimming and love coming to swim lessons. Teaching swim lessons is a very fulfilling job and I love feeling like I have an impact on a child’s life. I still remember my swim instructor from when I first learned how to swim and I hope that the kids I teach will remember me and all I teach them. I have taught over 100 people ranging all different age groups, from as young as 6 months old to adults over 50. I was also a part time swim coach for a summer league team and a year-round team. I’m great with teaching freestyle and backstroke and moderate on teaching the harder strokes breaststroke and butterfly. I have also taught some more experienced kids how to do dives and flip turns. I have taken kids from fearing the water to swimming all the way across a 25-meter pool with no help.
Hey ya’ll! My name is Lauren and I am happy to serve you here at Happy Swimmers. Along with being a certified American Red Cross Lifeguard, I also am a swim instructor. I have taught swim lessons for two years at a public pool. The age group I have experience teaching with is toddler through school age. However I can assist any age group, kids are just so fun! Seeing kids progress is what makes my job fun. I love to see children grow in their skills and become comfortable in the water.
A fun fact about me– I know American Sign Language! Maybe I can teach you a few signs!
Hello everyone! My name is Lauren and I have been an American Cross Certified Lifeguard for 3 years. I began my lifeguarding experience at a public pool and progressed from there to working for an after school program. Now, I am here at Happy Swimmers.
I have been a lifeguard for 3 years.
My goal as a lifeguard is your child/children’s safety. I take a preventative approach and try to stop the hazard before it happens. However, real life doesn’t always work like that; rest assured I am trained to act and do the best I can to ensure patrons’ safety.
My favorite part of lifeguarding is seeing everyone have fun. Swimming and water activities are one of the best parts of summer.
A fun fact about me–I attend The University of Texas at Austin and am majoring in Speech Language Pathology with a minor in American Sign Language.
Teaching from ages 3 to 37, swim lessons have always been a true joy for me to teach! Over the years, I always adjust all of my lessons to each child, teen or adult. Every swim student learns differently, which has taught me several different approaches on how to instruct them in way that is both encouraging and easy to grasp. Whatever age, level, or fear you have of the water, I am a very patient Swim Instructor who sincerely cares about teaching anyone to become a better, confident swimmer! My favorite part about lessons is being able to see the improvement of my students, seeing them smile knowing that they have gained control over a vital skill that could one day save their life.
I first started lifeguarding when I was 16, over the years I have learned so many useful, lifesaving skills that are essential to not only my job, but to my community. I’ve lifeguarded at birthday parties, senior lock-ins, and other special events. What I love most about being a guard is I have the humbling opportunity to keep my friends and community safe!
I serve the Austin communities of Austin proper, Manor, and Pflugerville, among others.
I’ve had three years of lifeguarding history at three companies. My goal whenever I’m lifeguarding is to prevent as many possible rescues before they even can take place. As I have only had to make one save in the past three years, this could have been a much greater number if had not been vigilant of my surroundings at all times. The thing l like most about lifeguarding events is I’m in charge of so many people’s lives it’s nerve wracking of course but it’s also gives me a sense of authority that when it comes down to it I have to act to save someone’s life.~~great awareness, Matthew and thanks for bringing your A-game 🙂 owner Jenn
Typical areas I serve include: Austin metro: Round Rock, Pflugerville, Cedar Park
4 years experience. General areas I can serve: San Antonio, San Marcos, Austin, College Station
I have been a lifeguard for over 4 years now. It seemed like the best job for me to do since I have been around the water ever since I was a little boy. I love going to these lifeguard events and seeing all the kids having a great time because it reminds me of when I was young and would go to the pool all the time. I love being the ‘cool’ lifeguard that kids can play with but at the same time I always make sure kids are being safe and everything is under control.
Last summer I lifeguarded at a summer camp, spending my afternoons watching kids splash in the river and my nights applying aloe vera. Lifeguarding to me is all about making sure the most fun is possibly had by my swimmers while still staying safe. Lifeguarding isn’t about ruining fun or being a buzzkill, it’s about making sure everyone has the best possible time in a safe environment!
I have 2 years lifeguarding experience
I am currently in my second year of lifeguarding, and have never stopped loving it since I started. When lifeguarding, I try to limit accidents and dangers by catching them before they even happen. I lifeguard in a professional manner, yet still make the event enjoyable for all involved. Lifeguarding for events such as parties is a unique experience because I not only get to keep people safe while they have fun, but get to know new people. I have been swimming on my summer league for over 12 years, so I am very comfortable near the water and know what to look for in people’s swimming abilities. When you don’t find me at work lifeguarding or at home studying, you will almost always find me with a fly rod in hand on any local body of water.
I serve the Austin communities of Round Rock, Spicewood, and Elgin, among others.
I have 2 years lifeguard experience.
I started lifeguarding because I enjoy taking care of others and socializing. I have found this to job to have been one that I keep coming back to because I enjoy meeting new people and providing a safe environment for everyone. The most rewarding part of this job is knowing that I made a positive impact on a kids life and them telling me that when they grow up they wanna be just like me and that they wanna be a lifeguard too. Fun facts about me, I did martial arts for 5 years, I’m currently ranked 57th in the nation for weightlifting, I’m a DJ, and I’m a personal trainer.
I serve the Houston communities of Katy and Sugarland, among others. And during school season Austin and San Antonio.

My name is Paulina Martin-de-Nicolas and I have been a lifeguard for five years now. I grew up in Austin and love the city and people dearly! During the school year, I attend Texas A&M University in College Station. My energy and direction at this time in my life are focused on becoming a nurse. Lifeguarding continues to give me hands-on interaction with children and adults for my future career. As a lifeguard, my focus is to ensure the safety of swimmers under my watch and perform rescues when needed. I intend to continue being a responsible and alert lifeguard as I start my 6th year in this field.

A little bit about Christine: After working as an LAPD scientific investigator for 11 years I transitioned to completing my M.S. degree in Chemistry then followed a teaching and research path in university academics for several years. I then moved to Hawaii in 2008 where I first joined the JTA CPR/ Happy Swimmers team as a CPR/First Aid instructor. During these years I had always made a priority in volunteerism being active in the National Ski Patrol and the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. Today I reside in Houston and presently support Help America Today turning elementary aged kids into the volunteers of tomorrow through grassroots community service projects. My passion for teaching and making a positive impact on our society is why I love teaching CPR and First Aid, particularly for those never certified. I am proud to now expand into the administrative staff of the company and be a part of turning children into happy swimmers.

Hi, I’m Sydney and I’m currently a sophomore at The University of Texas at Austin. Being by the water is my favorite place to be during the hot summers in Texas. I was a competitive swimmer for 14 years and still enjoy swimming laps in my free time.
For the past five summers, I have been a private and group swim instructor for ages 3 to 20. I have a wide spectrum of experience from children who are afraid to get in the water to competitive swimmers who need stroke instruction.
I enjoy building trust with the children I’ve taught and allowing them to progress into confident swimmers. I believe encouragement goes a long way and try to make the learning process as enjoyable as swimming is to me!
For the past five summers, I’ve lifeguarded at a city pool and for private events. When life guarding, I work to maintain a fun and safe environment for everyone inside and around the pool.
Because I am constantly scanning the pool and assessing the swimmers abilities, I saved lives each summer that I was working and prevented more accidents by enforcing the rules of the pool as well as general pool safety procedures. Last summer I was head life guard for our staff before retiring from my hometown pool. I take pride in my job and strive to continue to be a dependable life guard.
I serve the Austin communities of Austin, Pflugerville, Round Rock, among others.
I have spent 2 summers lifeguarding at a very high-energy waterpark, which started my love of helping those around me! I’m very excited to enhance the experiences of guests by providing a positive and most importantly, safe, environment. I run cross country at St. Edward’s University and I intend to apply that same effort and passion to every event I have the privilege to lifeguard.
I serve the Austin communities of Pflugerville, Austin, Rollingwood, Westlake Hills, among others.
