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.

Hi I’m Adam, and I’m currently a senior at Naaman Forest High School! In addition to being a lifeguard, I am a former member of the Rockwall club of USA Swimming and devout koala enthusiast. My intention in guarding is to maintain pool safety while also maximizing fun. My favorite part about lifeguarding is the atmosphere at pool parties. With the sun shining and music playing, is there another job that could possibly beat this?
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.
General areas I serve: San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Boerne, and Austin metro
I have been a lifeguard for one year now, originally for the City of Austin Aquatics Division. I intend to promote as much fun as possible while attempting to maintain a limited risk environment. I love being around water and kids, and enjoy keeping people safe while they do what they enjoy.
Home base area: North Austin, Cedar Park, Round Rock
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.
Hi there! My name is Lindsay Kendall and I have been a lifeguard with Happy Swimmers for five years now. I grew up in Austin but I attend the University of Alabama during the school year. During the summer months, I love to return to Austin and enjoy my beautiful city. I truly enjoy getting to travel around the Austin area meeting new people and protecting the safety of swimmers of all ages. While most pool parties are a breeze, each summer I encounter at least one distressed swimmer that needs my assistance. Growing up with a pool in my backyard, pool parties have been a part of my life since I was a young child. As a party host, you should be able to focus on the satisfaction of your guests and should not be concerned with whether the swimmers in your pool are safe. As a lifeguard is it my job to ensure the safety of all of your swimmers and guests so that you can enjoy your party and the time with you friends.
Areas I commonly serve: Austin, Cedar Park, Round Rock
This will be my fourth summer teaching swim lessons. I started giving lessons as a freshmen in high school and have had a lot of experience since then. I really love teaching kids to swim, seeing them learn to love the water and seeing how much they grow in their ability over the course of their lessons is really amazing to see. A fun fact about me is that I was born in Canada! P.S. I always bring suckers with me as a prize for the end of every lesson
Serving the general areas of Dripping Springs, Bee Cave, Austin
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.
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.
The summer camp I worked at swim lessons for our younger campers. Their skill level ranged from “never been in a pool” to “part of a swim league back home”. Over the course of my five years there, I learned which strategies work best for different experience levels and ages. I have been a lifeguard in central Texas for five years. Much of my time lifeguarding has been in a camp environment with a both a pool and lake. During my tenure at this camp, I rose to the position of Lake Director. My reason for lifeguarding has always been to keep people safe while they have the best time possible in the water. I grew up near the beach and to me, water has always been synonymous with happiness and fun. That is why I strive to keep everyone safe while they have fun in the sun.
Typical communities I’ve served include Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park, Georgetown, Pfluegerville.
5 years experience guarding
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.
